Birgitta Jónsdóttir is a former volunteer activist with the hacktivist group "Wikileaks," and current member of the Icelandic Parliament, Jónsdóttir has made a name for herself with her outspoken support of imprisoned US Army Private Bradley Manning.

She is also a subject in the US' investigation into the cases of Wikileaks and Pvt. Manning. Her international profile has become a lightening rod in the growing debate over online privacy in the twenty first century. She is a staunch opponent of US counter-terrorism legislation such as the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA.)
