The Zero Anthropology Project

Webfolio for Maximilian C. ForteZERO ANTHROPOLOGY PROJECT






WikiLeaks, directed by Julian Assange, has performed an essential service for everyone concerned with and impacted by the corruption of government and financial institutions, war, and the human rights violations carried out under the global dictatorship of the US. WikiLeaks’ journalism has rivalled, succeeded, and superseded the dominant media institutions with all of their many alliances and compromises with the US imperial security state. The Zero Anthropology Project actively supports WikiLeaks by a number of means: financial donations; speaking out in defence of WikiLeaks in various media interviews; serving as a press contact for several years; training students on accessing and using WikiLeaks data and publications; setting up a WikiLeaks mirror on the domain; and, authoring the publications listed below which were either about WikiLeaks or based heavily on information published by WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks should not just be celebrated as a unique and independent support system for citizens, but needs to be defended by all means possible. The listing below differs from the others in terms of format and that it aims for complete coverage of all relevant work produced by the ZAP. The date of the last edit here was June 30, 2019.
