al-Jazeera employees fight back.

With blogs, not bombs.

Don't Bomb Us -- A blog by Al Jazeera Staffers.

In response to the threat of the British government to arrest any of its citizens who leak the memo in which Bush reportedly suggested to Blair that al-Jazeera be bombed, a grassroots effort has also sprung up of reporters and websites willing to work together to collectively leak the memo.

In other words, if the British government wanted to arrest the leaker, they'd have to be prepared to arrest hundreds of others at the same time.

And yes, if I had the memo, I'd leak it too, even though it might effect my dual citizenship. The British people have the right to know. So do the people of the US and the people of Qatar, for that matter.
