Filmmakers Michael Moore, John Pilger and Ken Loach have put up bail money for WikiLeaks founder and CEO Julian Assange. Moore posted an explanation for his support of the whistleblowing organization on his website, while Pilger, whose new film The War You Don’t See features an interview with Assange, has posted several pro-WikiLeaks interviews on his website. Assange, jailed in London over allegations from two Swedish women concerning sexual crimes, was ordered to be freed on bail on Tuesday but is still in custody, awaiting word on whether he will be extradited to Sweden to face the charges there.
