WikiLeaks’ Assange: China is Our Real Enemy

Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, says in an interview that his organization is helping Chinese Internet users find ways to circumvent the Great Firewall to access Wikileaks and other blocked sites. From Reuters:

Assange, whose website has angered and embarrassed Washington by releasing confidential U.S. diplomatic cables, said China was the main technological enemy of WikiLeaks, not the United States.

“China has aggressive and sophisticated interception technology that places itself between every reader inside China and every information source outside China,” Assange told Britain’s New Statesman magazine.

“We’ve been fighting a running battle to make sure we can get information through and there are now all sorts of ways Chinese readers can get on to our site,” he said in extracts of the interview published on the magazine’s website.
