WikiLeaks has played a crucial part in changing how we view confidential and top-secret information. The international non-profit organisation was set up in Iceland in October 2006 by Australian computer programmer, Julian Assange, and holds the motto ‘We open governments’. The main impetus of the site is to publish original secret files, documents, and details, plus classified media and news leaks provided through anonymous sources. It is done under the umbrella of ‘freedom of information’. They have had nominations for the UN Mandela prize (2015) and nominations over six consecutive years for the Nobel peace prize (2010-2015).
