Dødslisten Norsk Journalistlag (NJ) fortrenger

I sekretariatet rundt redaktør Helge Øgrim i Norsk Journalistlag (NJ) har det pågått heftig aktivitet ved juletider for å få journalister til å støtte Wikileaks. Der finnes ikke rom for kildekritisk refleksjon over opphav, servere - og dødslister der

Publisert: 31. des 2010 / 45 visninger.

At de ledende representantene for Wikileaks i Skandinavia er kjente, notoriske anti-semitter opptar ikke journalistenes fagorganisasjon i Norge. At den ene av de to også er Wikileaks sin representant for hele Russland, lenge før Skandinavia offisielt kom i nedslagsfeltet, er også likegyldig. Nesten alt materiale Wikileaks har stjålet og distribuerer er knyttet til NATO-land og USA. Det er praktisk talt umulig å oppdrive ett dokument som avslører Putin-regimet og dets diplomater.  Men det er heller ingen frihet til å opprette uavhengige Wikileaks-servere i dagens Russland, og det blir til et viktig poeng i denne omgangen. 365 fagjournalister er drepte/likviderte i Russland siden 1992 og til og med 2009. Det står det ikke noe om på websiden til Norsk Journalistlag (NJ).

Store serverne i det russiske selskapet Heihachi Ltd betjener nå Wikileaks, som organisasjonens speilservere er omdirigert til, fra 10. desember 2010. Dette nettverket og disse nettsidene og serverne kan ikke eksistere i dagens Russland uten myndighetens autorisasjon og godkjenning forøvrig; jamfør også Norids kontroll i Norge. Det er med andre ord en overhengende fare for at russiske etterretningsorganisasjoner som FSB (Den sentrale etterretningen, tidligere KGB), SVR (Utenlandsetterretningen) og GRU (Den militære etterretningen) inngår som en del av det dystre perspektivet rundt Wikileaks. Det kan være på sin plass med følgende spørsmål til Norsk Journalistlag (NJ):

Er det rimelig mulighet for at de store server-kapasitetene som ble rigget på ny plattform i Moskva i desember er en del av en prosess som Vladimir Putins og Medvedvs regime er en del av?

Er det ikke ugreit å gå ut med full støtte til en hemmelig organisasjon, som etter alt å dømme driver ulovlig hacking-virksomhet og som selger materialer som er stjålet?

Dersom det er tvil om Wikileaks som hemmelig organisasjon og bortgjemte celle-strukturer, om deres bakrom offisielt kalt "Anonymus" - med hackere og crackere som driver ulovlig virksomhet, tvil om kildens reelle opphav og skjulte agenda, reelle muligheter i tid og rom for manipulativ utsortering av dokumenter, samt mulighet for et omhyggelig forberedt politisk spill knyttet til materialet - er ikke dette noe som entydig burde oppta journalistenes største fagforening i Norge? Altså i god tid før man hiver seg på som aktiv støttespiller og begynner å overføre penger til Wikileaks? Skal journalister drive med journalistikk eller politikk for ekstremistgrupper? Kanskje bør flere bestemme seg med tanke på integritetsspørsmålet i dette bildet.

Hvordan er det mulig for Norsk Journalistlag å gå inn med økonomisk støtte til Wikileaks som hemmelig organisasjon? Redaktør Helge Øgrim i Journalistlagets sekretariat har sendt utallige email ved juletider, for å få flere journalister og presseorganisasjoner til å støtte Wikileaks aktivt. Nå har Helge Øgrim selv umåtelig lang fartstid som stalinist sentralt i AKP, men en må vel likevel forutsette rene faglige kriterier i motivasjonsgrunnlaget i denne saken? Du kan vel være stalinist og likevel en god journalist, får vi tro.

Jeg vil benytte anledningen til å problematisere dagens pressefrihet i Russland, med å henvise til nedenstående dødsliste, som gjelder perioden 1992 til 2010. På denne listen finnes særdeles mange som skrev og presenterte kritiske artikler mot det russiske regimet. Urovekkende mange av dem uttrykte seg kritisk om Putins politikk. Skal vi tro at Wikileaks kan etablere en stor databse og server midt i Moskva, spekket med sensitive data om diplomatiet i NATO-land og USA, uten at Putin er en del av bildet?

Det tar noen minutter, men se over denne navnelisten!

365 journalister og skribenter er altså drept/likvidert i Russland i nevnte periode. Det har i samme periode vært omkring 50 rettssaker i forsøk på å få fengslet gjerningsmenn. Men dette har vært særdeles diffuse opplegg.

I september 2009 la så den russiske "Komiteen for beskyttelse av journalister" frem en rapport, som het "Rettferdighetenes anatomi" (Анатомия безнаказанности), som bekrefter en politisk kultur hvor journalister lever i en av verdens klart farligste land. Hvor ytringsfriheten ikke er reell. Midt oppe i dette politiske landskapet ligger en hovedserver og en database for Wikileaks. En organisasjon fagforeningen til norske journalister aktivt støtter, også med penger.

Jeg er betenkt over det jeg oppfatter som en politisk slagside i det som bør være en fagforening det ikke oppstår tvil rundt, knyttet til politisk integritet og faglig troverdighet forøvrig. I møte med Wikileaks har Norsk Journalistlag rett og slett sviktet.

Hvor var Norks Journalistlag da ovenstående journalister ble drept? Det burde kanskje oppta norske journalister like mye som israelske mottiltak mot logistikk og rakettbaser for islamistgruppen Hamas i Gaza?

Igjen, til alle under det frie ords merke: Godt nytt år!
