On Thursday, December 9, protesters stood outside the New York Times building to show their support for Wikileaks and its founder, Julian Assange, who was arrested earlier that week for suspicion of rape. They also demonstrated against companies like Paypal and Amazon which cut their services to the website.
The protest was organized by the International Action Center, a grassroots human rights and anti-war group that has been highly supportive of Wikileaks. They have also called for the release of Pfc. Bradley Manning, who allegedly leaked information about the Iraq and Afghan Wars, as well as a trove of diplomatic cables.
