Wikis Protests Planned in Spain, Latin America

APDec. 10: A Mexican journalist arranges a banner with an of Wikis founder Julian Assange that rds in Spanish "We are all Julian Assange," in Mexico City.Demonstrations are planned Saturday to protest the detention of the founder of secret-spilling website Wikis and the closing of its Swiss bank account.The Spanish-language website Free Wikis says protests are to be held in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia and Seville and three other Spanish cities. It also says demonstrations are planned Saturday in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and in the capital cities of Colombia, Artina, Mexico and Peru.
"We seek the liberation of Julian Assange in United Kingdom territory," the organization said on the website. It called on protesters to gather at 6 p.m. (17:00 GMT) in Spanish cities.
Assange remains in a U.K. jail ahd of a Dec. 14 hring where he plans to fight Sweden's request to extradite him to face sex crimes allegations.
The website also calls for "the re-establishment of the Wikis ( Internet domain," and the restoration of Visa and MasterCard credit card services to enable the "freedom to move money" because no one has "proved Assange's guilt," nor charged Wikis with any crime.
Many U.S.-based Internet companies have cut their ties to Wikis, including MasterCard Inc., Visa Inc.,, PayPal Inc. and EveryDNS. Those moves have hurt Wikis' ability to accept donations and support publishing efforts.
