Wikileaks is auctioning a lunch with its founder

Wikileaks, which specializes in the publication of secret documents, has auctioned a lunch with the founder Julian Assange to raise funds for the activities of its website. Eight seats are at stake since this Monday for lunch in "one of the best restaurants in London," the U.S. platform for eBay auctions.

Yesterday morning, the main auction was 700 euros (1,000 dollars), eBay promised that all sales would end at Wikileaks. The luncheon will be held from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. Saturday, July 2 and will be followed by a public discussion between Julian Assange and the Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek on the impact of Wikileaks.

Julian Assange will then return to the mansion located 200 km north-east London, where he was under house arrest since his release on bail in December, pending a final decision of the English justice on its possible extradited to Sweden where he is wanted in a double case of sexual violence.

British court will consider 12 and 13 July his appeal against his extradition, which was validated in February. Australian citizen, the founder of Wikileaks has always denied the charges against him. His supporters believe he is the victim of a conspiracy after the disclosure by Wikileaks, official documents and secrets that have embarrassed Washington and many other capitals.
