WikiLeaks Press is a volunteer-organized news and news aggregation website endorsed by WikiLeaks.  As a support project, we are not official representatives of WikiLeaks – official WikiLeaks statements and information will only ever be given out over the WikiLeaks website and the @wikileaks twitter account.  Press contacts for WikiLeaks can be found here.


NOTE: As of the end of December, our email services have been down. We are working on bringing them back up; in the meantime, please be patient and use other forms of contact to reach us. Thank you!
