WikiLeaks has said it is planning to release documents on Turkey’s political power structure, after a failed coup attempt over the weekend that left hundreds dead, thousands injured and more than 7,500 suspects in custody.

“Get ready for a fight as we release 100k+ docs on #Turkey’s political power structure,” the whistle-blowing organization said on Monday via its official Twitter feed.

The first batch will contain 300,000 emails and 500,000 documents and most of the material will be in Turkish, WikiLeaks said.

The organization also claimed that the Turkish government will attempt to censor the distribution of the documents and urged the Turkish public to be ready to bypass any government attempts at blocking access to the material, Al Jazeera reported.

“Turks will likely be censored to prevent them reading our pending release of 100k+ docs on politics leading up to the coup,” the organization said on Twitter.

“We ask that Turks are ready with censorship bypassing systems such as TorBrowser and uTorrent. And that everyone else is ready to help them bypass censorship and push our links through the censorship to come.”

The announcement caused excitement in Turkey with thousands of Twitter users sharing the organization’s tweets.
