article image'Wikileaks' still not operational, reactivation date now Jan. 11

Wikileaks, the website devoted to publishing sensitive information from anonymous sources, has now pushed the date for their reactivation back to January 11 after promising earlier to be back online by January 6.
Wikileaks, the website where whistleblowers can leak sensitive information while remaining anonymous and untraceable, is still suspended after initially promising to be back up and functioning by January 6. The story was originally covered in this Digital Journal article.
Visitors to the website are now told that they have "reluctantly suspended all operations (other than fundraising) until January 11." Previously, the site had promised to be back online by January 6.
An email received from Wikileaks by a Digital Journal reporter on January 3, said at the time, "We will be back on the six(th) in some form come hell or high water. How much (newly leaked information) we can release and how fast, depends on how much funding we have." The website gives no new information for the five day delay.
The website says on their homepage that, Although our work produces reforms daily and is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including the 2008 Economist Freedom of Expression Award as well as the 2009 Amnesty International New Media Award, these accolades do not pay the bills.
The website includes options on the page for those who wish to donate to the site. They will accept payments by credit card, Paypal, bank transfer, cash or check. They also say they will accept help from those who wish to support the website with technical or legal help.
Wikileaks first went online in January 2007.
