New post on Occupy Cyberspace – American Autumn

The Julian Assange/Wikileaks speech that was censored by the Oxford Union (video)

by TooDamnEZ

In an attempt to highlight the importance of whistleblowers, Julian Assangechose to have WikiLeaksCollateral Murder footage as background for his speech at the Sam Adams Awards, an award dedicated to whistleblowers. The ceremony was organized by the Oxford Union. As a result of the video playing in the background and unsuccessful attempts to vet Julian’s speech, the Union pulled the live stream from the event and spent two days substituting the US Army massacre footage with their logo. The Union claimed they feared that the US government would take legal actionconcerning “copyright” of the Apache gun camera footage. Wikileaks advised the Union that by law and practice the US government does not claim copyrights on footage or documents that it produces, the Union still decided to censor the video.
