This project began as a conversation between members of the Peoples Liberation Front and Anonymous
during the defense of WikiLeaks during Operation Justice in December of 2010. In January of 2011 the
PLF launched Operation LocalLeaks to try and bring this important project to fruition. During this
phase, the finest hackers in the world were employed to determine the best and safest way to set up
such a project. Operation LocalLeaks comes to fruition with the launch of the project and web site
in June of 2011.
In both security as well as overall strategy, LocalLeaks is closely modeled on WikiLeaks. Our first
priority is to provide a safe, secure - and anonymous way for local government or corporate employees
to disclose sensitive information. Our team of analysts first carefully screens each submission for any
possible trace of the senders identity. Our second commitment is to ensure that each and every leak
receives the maximum exposure possible in order to achieve the most profound political impact for the
risks taken by those submitting material. To that end, we work with media outlets all over the world.
