By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 26 December 2010

On Thursday afternoon, the day before the Christmas holiday, about 20 people
held signs at a busy Honolulu intersection reading "Defend
Wikileaks", "Defend Julian Assange", "Support Bradley Manning" and other
messages against the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. Many drivers
responded by honking or giving an enthusiastic thumbs up.

Those who responded most enthusiastically were young people more attuned to
internet and seemingly aware of the danger of internet regulation. This is
consistent with what we've learned in taking this issue to the street and
talking with people in person. The crowd that seems to be aware of the
seriousness of the attacks on Wikileaks are generally young (especially
male) between 20-30 years old who may not follow mainstream news media
sources, but who are following blog sites.

We were encouraged by both the number of people who came to hold signs
during the busy holiday season, and by the response from the street.
