Spread the word – vote WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks became the media, now we can become the government

Gerry Georgatos - September 1st, 2013 - We can change the political discourse in this country, we can change the political landscape. Next week, and despite it being unimaginable now, we can have a brave new Australia, a never-before-seen landscape, our national consciousness enriched. With less than a week to the federal election we have the opportunity before us to make this happen. The Senate-only party, The WikiLeaks Party, has three candidates in three States who are all close to being elected. We need your primary vote.

Everyone in the Territory doing well except for Aboriginal peoples

By Gerry Georgatos - August 24th, 2013 - During Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s recent whirlwind election stop in the Top End he highlighted the average age of death of the Northern Territory’s Aboriginal peoples – 52 years. This is the nation’s worst.

No truly free press with our inadequate shield laws, whistleblower protections

WikiLeaks Party statement on intervention in Syria

August 25, 2013 As the US prepares for military action in Syria, the reactions of Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott are entirely in keeping with previous ALP and Coalition failures to put Australian military forces before their own party alliances with Washington.

Australia needs to send emergency medical aid to Syria immediately and assist an independent assessment of the situation. It must not rush towards sacrificing its young soldiers on behalf of an ambitious foreign power before the jury is in.

Whistleblowers needed when cultures of wrong-doing rule

Gerry Georgatos - I stand alongside those who let nothing get in the way of what is right, what is in the common good. I stand alongside those who will let no injustice go unheard, untold. I stand alongside Private Chelsea Manning who has been sentenced up to 35 years in prison for serving humanity's interests. Manning's decision to report to humanity was out of concern for humanity.

Manning should be relieved of the cruel and unfair burden of her prison sentence with a presidential pardon, and she should be acknowledged as both a patriot and as a true citizen of the world.

Against the Election Spectacle

Free magazine charting two years of global resistance to politicians and their political process

Download zine at:

This zine has been compiled by some anarchists from the colonised region known as Australia. This small project was initiated to contribute to a discussion on how anti-authoritarians should intervene in or disrupt the 2013 Federal Election.

We have included statements and communiques from a range of anti-authoritarian positions taken from counter information sites, from the insurrectionary to the platformist.
