PayPal joined Moneybookers, Amazon, Tableau and EveryDNS in cancelling services for WikiLeaks.
In a statement posted on its website, the company wrote: "PayPal has permanently restricted the account used by WikiLeaks due to a violation of the PayPal Acceptable Use Policy, which states that our payment service cannot be used for any activities that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity. We’ve notified the account holder of this action."
Daniel Ellsberg and many WikiLeaks supporters have called for a boycott of Amazon. PayPal may be next.
There are many other ways for supporters of truth and free speech to contribute to WikiLeaks, and we would like to encourage you to do so: http://126.96.36.199/support.html
