Hi John. 

Yes, you have my permission to post my reply to XXXXXXXX as a stand-alone 
public comment from me regarding this situation. My understanding is that the possible pending contribution from the Wau
Holland Foundation, on behalf of Wikileaks, is for 15,000 Euros approx. $20,000. Jeff Paterson
Jeff, XXXXXXX has shared the email [from] you below. We would like to publish it on unless you object. If you do not object is there later or more information on the topic you could share for publication? For example, have you received funds from Wau Holland or Wikileaks rather than promises? Regards, John Young Admin
From: <jp[at]>) Date: Thu, 09 Dec 2010 20:06:01 +0000 We had no desire to make a statement regarding the Wikileaks pledged contribution, and it was unfortunate timing that it was released on the same day of Mr. Assange's arrest. We were compelled to do so by recent statements by Wikileaks regarding this issue, by media interest in the issue, and the need for our Support Network to move forward in defense of Bradley Manning. We have no idea what funds were received by Wikileaks in response to their appeal on Bradley's behalf. If I had to guess, I'd say a few grand--$10k max. I believe that we may yet receive a contribution from Wikileaks, and we'll make that public when it happens. I got a message from the Wau Holland Foundation this morning asking for our non-profit paperwork and an accounting of funds used so far, which I provided to them. That is something we do regularly in applying for grants, or to receive unsolicited grants. I believe it is a positive development.
