On April 4th, 2013, the Associated Whistle-Blowing Press opened an international submission node in order to allow people from around the world to send information proving corruption, abuse and malpractice by private or public institutions in an private and anonymous way.

The AWP only accepts and publishes restricted or censored material of political, scientific, ethical, diplomatic or historical significance. Rumor, opinion, stories and other kinds of first hand accounts or material that is publicly available elsewhere will not be considered for obvious reasons.

This platform, like the AWP’s other local nodes, uses software developed by GlobaLeaks a self described open-source whistleblowing framework for sending and receiving files safely. In order to guarantee the identity of the source the platform works together with the Tor browser.

Even though the AWP is conceived as a network made up of local whistle-blowing platforms which deal with the struggles and concerns of specific social contexts, it wishes to allow anyone, anywhere, to raise their voice and help bring important information to the public.
