Chinese Activists Created Their Own WikiLeaks

The recent news from China confirms that a group of Chinese dissidents are going to launch their own project of a whistle-blowing site like WikiLeaks soon, in order to promote democracy and expose their government’s secrets.

The activists have expressed their intentions via different social networking websites like Twitter, saying that they aim to launch a new project called "Government Leaks" in the middle of the next year. As for today, the dissidents are calling on people to upload interesting confidential information to the site.

The service creator said he believes that by exposing government secrets they would be able to promote democracy in the country. The effort is regarded as fight against the dictatorship, and an attempt to return people the right to information. The site founder thinks it will push the country’s political reform.

As the service creator explained, a team of developers had already been assembled to run the service. The team consists of lawyers, journalists, editors, and even hackers, who are supposed to help protect the service from possible cyberattacks.

The founder told he was inspired by 40-years-old US scandal called Watergate, as well as by the success of WikiLeaks, having gained the recognition throughout the globe after publishing US documents connected with the war in Afghanistan. By the way, there are some Chinese dissidents among the creators of WikiLeaks, as their own site says. Besides, WikiLeaks has recently started a Chinese language version of their site, which hasn’t published any information on the Chinese government yet.

The new project of the Chinese activists was actually planned to be developed in cooperation with WikiLeaks, but the site founder failed to contact WikiLeaks operators. Nevertheless, Government Leaks introduces itself as the copycat version of WikiLeaks in their country.

The difference is that while WikiLeaks is based in Europe, where the constitution guarantees the freedom of speech and rights to information, the Chinese Government Leaks doesn’t have such support and will undoubtedly anger the central government.

Meanwhile, a number of industry observers on the mainland consider the Government Leaks project too open in its approach and call the very idea not only naive but even dangerous for China.

KazzGirl avatarI commend these people on their bravery and love for a "Free China", but they need to consider that if they fail and are excuted by their government, it will done in a way that is a deterent to others to try this again and more than likely put their cause back by years.

These brave people need to have their site based in a country that does not need to kiss China's butt! They need to get help from ex Chinese residents who also want to see a "Free China", as well as others in the world who wish to see the regime in China fall. I am sure this can be done, it just needs to be engineered in such a way that nothing comes back to any current resident of China. Or those who still have family there. And above anything else, those of us who can, help these people in these efforts.

It was only when one man lay down in front of a tank in Tiananmen Square in way back 1989 that any of us really took notice of what goes on in China. In all honesty this man was more than likely shot for his protest, but what he did lives on in history and created a movement. With outside help this soon to be site could do the same. It could just as easily change the face of the world and help free China and its people.
