WikiLeaks says it is running out of money

Whistleblowing website WikiLeaks announced on Wednesday that it was running out of money, saying it had only 100,000 euros left for 2012.

That money will be depleted in a few months if it does not get any further donations, according to the organisation.
The group needs one million euros immediately, it said. Donations are the most important source of income for WikiLeaks – these were collected though Germany’s Wau-Holland-Foundation. WikiLeaks criticised credit card companies Visa and MasterCard for undermining the organisation by stopping to forward donations in 2010. The WikiLeaks platform was founded by Julian Assange and has published more than 250,000 internal documents from US-embassies around the world.
Mr. Assange has sought refuge in Ecuador’s embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden on sex allegations.
