Greetings.
Unemployed and students, wage slaves and Farmers, priests and rock stars.
Mothers and fathers, sons and daughters. Anonymous brothers and sisters of earth.
This is an anonymous message to the people of the world.

More and more of us are poor and starving.
More and more of us are being killed and imprisoned.
More and more of us are being censored and monitored.
More and more of our rights, hopes and dreams are quickly being stripped away.
The world of today is a dark place. The many live under the rule of the few.
This is true all around the world.

This shit, has got to go.

For to long our need to belong has been perversely used by those who wish to rule us.
Since time immemorial, we, the people, have been separated and divided.
Since time immemorial, we, the people, have been conquered and ruled.
But from time to time, we, the people, unite.
Such is our history, for we do not forgive, and we do not forget.

That which has been before, has been a remarkable progression.
That which is today, is a remarkable situation.
And that which is to come, is without precedent.
Make no mistake. History is in the making. The window of opportunity is open.

As technological advancements give us a new global consciousness and unprecedented unity, governments, corporations and old world establishments are threatened at their very core. As a result they are now fighting us all in a war. Never before have so few tried to fight so many.

Their tricks are numerous, their methods are dangerous and cruel.
But In times of mass propaganda, lies and oppression – indeed, in times of universal deceit, one word of truth outweighs the whole world.
Truth is revolutionary and courage is contagious.
We ask you to understand this, for to understand, is to transform what is.

The time has come for what we all have been waiting for.
You, are the idea to which time has finally come. You are the calm and the storm.
You, are anonymous. We are anonymous.

The time has come for you to pick up your personal responsibility.
The time has come for each one of us to speak the word of truth.

This year anonymous invites all human beings to create something and present it to the world. Put something out there for the world to see. Never be silent! Always be bold!
Listen and speak, learn and teach, read and write. Create. Revolt. You decide your own level of involvement in human evolution, but never fear, for you are not alone.

In 2011 the world is devided by zero. In 2011, who is Spartacus?

We are anonymous
We are legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Expect us

Operation Venezuela

A concerned Venezuelan blogger  contacted us about the horrible situation in his country. We asked him  for more detailed information, this is what he wrote back:

Hi Anonymous, Chávez and his supporters are once  again ratcheting up the government’s power to punish critics. And their  intolerance for dissent now has a new target:  Thank you so much for your answer and your time, it´s a big pleasure for me that someone can help me prove to the world that this corrupt government has been doing so much damage to the Venezuelan people for a lot of years. At the beginning Chavez tried to prove to the World that he´s not a dictator, but that´s not true.           Currently a lot of people in Venezuela are in jail because they think different and have another ideas about Democracy, and only because they have another opinion and they´re not doing what the king says (HUGO CHAVEZ). Many people are living in other countries because in Venezuela  there is no safety and any guarantee of freedom for us and for our children. A lot of people died in the streets because of the brutal insecurity and repressions  (…) Read the full letter here

We want free speech for everyone.  don’t censor the Internet!

We’ll fight for peace. Cause we are legion. Cause we are Anonymous.

Join us. #opvenezuela

(signalfire.org) The trial of 13 people suspected of being part of a Greek anarchist group accused of a series of bombings has been adjourned soon after it got under way at a prison in Athens.

Nine of the accused appeared in the court, held in the Korydallos prison on Monday, but proceedings were adjourned for one week following a string of demands from the defendants.

Four other defendants remain on the run and will be tried in absentia.

The proceedings were halted several times before the adjournment as the defendants objected to identity checks on people attending the court, some of whom were their friends or family members.

They also demanded that their handcuffs be removed during the court process and that the hearing be recorded.

Maria Mariellou, the presiding judge, who at times appeared overwhelmed in her efforts to maintain order, initially approved the request but later said there were no facilities available at present for audio recording, prompting an angry reaction from the defendants and their supporters.

Bombing campaign

The 13 suspects, aged between 19 and 30, are facing charges for their alleged involvement in the Conspiracy of Fire Cells.

The organisation has claimed a wave of parcel bombs sent to foreign missions in Athens in November and three European leaders abroad.

Nobody has been killed as a result of the group’s activities.

Police have arrested more than 20 suspected members of armed groups, mainly from the Conspiracy of Fire Cells, in the last two years, but this has not prevented them from carrying out further attacks.

Weeks before the trial the group bombed an Athens court house, damaging the building and shattering the windows of nearby buildings and wrecked at least eight cars.

Five suspected members of a group, who police said were planning attacks ahead of the trial, were arrested last week.

Mistaken identity

Those suspects also appeared before the prosecutor on Monday and four of them were jailed pending trial, while a fifth, a German woman, was released.

Helen Skopis, reporting for Al Jazeera from Athens, said that the woman had been falsely identified when she was arrested.

“She was mistakenly taken for the daughter of a Red Army Faction member,” she reported, referring to the armed leftist group that used to be active in Germany in the 1970s and 80s.

“She used to live in Thessaloniki until last summer when she moved to Athens. She had been in the company of some of the defendants.”

Greece has a decades-old history of leftist attacks, but some groups became more active after riots in 2008 that were sparked by the police killing of a teenager.

This is the first time since the ruling socialists came to power in October 2009, vowing to crack down on the groups, that suspected members have faced trial.

The trial is expected to last months and, if found guilty, the defendants face up to 25 years in jail.

(wlcentral.org) Yesterday, Tunisia’s new government was announced. Today, four of the new ministers resigned in accord with protesters who continued to demand the complete resignation of the old regime. Prime Minister Mohamed Ghannouchi is one of eight ministers of former president Ben Ali’s government who will remain in the new government announced yesterday.

Junior Minister for Transportation and Equipment Anouar Ben Gueddour resigned along with Houssine Dimassi, the labor minister, and minister of prime ministerial affairs Abdeljelil Bedoui. All three are members of labour union UGIT. The labour union’s supporters staged a protest Tunis today, calling for a general strike, constitutional changes and the release of all imprisoned union leaders.

Al Aribya reports

Health Minister Mustapha Ben Jaafar of the FDLT opposition party also resigned, party member Hedi Raddaoui told The AP. It was not immediately clear if the resignations could bring down the government, which has 40 full and junion ministers. Speaking to the AP, Ahmed Ibrahim, the new minister for higher education from the opposition Ettajdid party, denied reports he’d resigned.

Al Jazeera’s Nazanine Moshiri said the government is in talks with other members of the opposition in the cabinet who are considering resigning unless certain conditions are met.

Moncef Marzouki, an exiled opposition leader and presidential hopeful, on Monday branded his country’s new government a “masquerade” still dominated by supporters of ousted strongman Ben Ali.

“Tunisia deserved much more,” the secular leftist declared.

“Ninety dead, four weeks of real revolution, only for it to come to this? A unity government in name only because, in reality, it is made up of members of the party of dictatorship, the CRD,” Marzouki said.

Al Jazeera’s Hashem Ahelbarra reported that Marzouki, a 65-year-old medical doctor and human rights activist, was met by a crowd on his supporters at Tunis airport on Tuesday.

Marzouki told them that he would ask Saudi Arabia to hand over Ben Ali to be prosecuted in Tunisia for “crimes committed against the people of Tunisia”.

Rachid al-Ghannouchi (no relation to Mohamed Ghannouchi), the exiled leader of the Nahdha Movement party, told London-based Asharq Alawsat newspaper that leaders of his party had not been invited to participate in the negotiations in forming the so-called unity government.

He expressed anger at the exclusion, but said his party would consider joining the government if asked to do so.

The labour union UGIT refused to recognize the government. Protests continue in the capital and several other major cities, while police attempt to prevent protesters from gathering by using tear gas to break up crowds.

Ahmed Friaa, Tunisia’s interior minister, announced that 78 people have been killed in the country during the recent turmoil.
