Iceland MP Birgitta J?nsd?ttir reached U.S. for the first time since there are controversial WikiLeaks Collateral murder three years
Birgitta J?nsd?ttir, Icelandic MP who was part of a small group of activists who produced the WikiLeaks dump of state secrets in the United States, joined the United States for the first time since the controversy three years ago to protest against what he saw as a disproportionate repression by the U.S. government Internet complainants.
J?nsd?ttir marks the third anniversary of the "Collateral Murder" video to WikiLeaks put on the map, on 5 April 2010 by a developer material from a U.S. Apache helicopter attack against unarmed civilians in Baghdad - in organizing an exhibition of photographs taken from the video in New York. She expects the screen to draw attention to the plight of Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier currently facing a court martial for being the WikiLeaks source as well as increasing public debate on the treatment of whistleblowers online.
"Repression against whistleblowers went well beyond what is reasonable," he said in an interview with The Guardian. "No other American president has been treated as many applicants as Obama - who is not in the spirit of transparency that he promised when he was elected"
J?nsd?ttir believes that the American public has been unable to keep pace with the changes, which saw a rapid transfer of the information activity on the Internet. "The general public does not understand that activism to keep our government honest acted in line."
points to the recent suicide of the Internet activist Aaron Swartz, who is being tested as part of a flight of newspaper articles that had been hacked. "How is it justifiable Swartz put in jail for 45 years? Justifiable How Bradley Manning could be sentenced to life in prison?"
J?nsd?ttir was part of a small group of volunteers who joined Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, Iceland to prepare the Collateral Murder video for publication. He fled in a real solid state secrets U.S. admitted that Manning WikiLeaks from between 2009 and 2010, including hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables from around the world.
The video was one of the most spectacular and impressive releases that showed U.S. military apparently taking pleasure in attacking the Iraqis were supposed militants, but that turned out to be civilians including children and two Reuters journalists were killed. The New York exhibition also includes images showing the scene of the attack helicopter training in people with titles drawn audio inside the Apache recorded.
J?nsd?ttir Given the heavy-handed approach of the U.S. government towards those he considers the complainants of the Internet began to tarnish the reputation of the United States in the world. "It's like China, alertness when the U.S. government ordered its employees not to look at WikiLeaks, it was as if the Chinese regime telling his people not to look at the Internet material on Tibet -. I I see no difference. "
