Media News - Monday, June 27, 2011
WikiLeaks cofounder and editor Julian Assange recently signed an agreement with Publica, a non-profit investigative journalism center that was launched in March by three Brazilian journalists, Terra Magazine reports. In a video published on the center’s homepage, Assange discusses the agreement and promises more document leaks relevant to Brazil. Among Publica’s founders is Natalia Viana, a representative for WikiLeaks in Brazil. In the video, she discusses the role of the center in the newly-signed partnership: “Publica has American Embassy documents that were obtained by WikiLeaks. Because of this we invited a series of our colleagues, independent journalists, to read these documents and write stories that still need to be published so that the Brazilian public can know this important part of the country’s history.” The documents will begin to be released on Publica’s website starting June 27, Rede Brasil Atual reports.
