Julian Assange is an internet activist, journalist and publisher. Born and raised in Australia, Julian is the founder, spokesperson and editor in chief of WikiLeaks, a whistleblower website that started in 2006. In 2010 WikiLeaks began to publish hundreds of thousands of classified details about American involvement in the wares in Afghanistan and Iraq, which created a media storm. At the end of 2010, the site published a series of classified US diplomatic cables, now known as Cablegate. What followed with Julian Assange is now the subject of much media interest.
