Julian Assange: Australian editor, publisher, activist and founder of WikiLeaks
Julian Paul Assange is an Australian editor, publisher who founded WikiLeaks in 2006. Several Union of Journalists consider him as a journalist. WikiLeaks came to international attention in 2010 when it published a series of leaks provided by U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning. These leaks included the Collateral Murder video, the Afghanistan war logs, the Iraq war logs, and CableGate. After the 2010 leaks, the United States government launched a criminal investigation into WikiLeaks.
