JANUARY 30, 2011
DEAR CITIZENS OF THE WORLD,
We, Anonymous, revile the extreme violence organized by the repressive Algerian regime against its opposition on Saturday, January 22nd, 2011. We hereby express our solidarity towards the Algerian people and our deepest sympathies for the injured and their families. It is for the sake of their plight that we have begun launching attacks on Algerian government websites. Furthermore, we will actively participate in the Day of Change organised by the opposition on Saturday February 12th, 2011. We will vigilantly ensure that Algerians’ efforts are successful, while remaining constant in reminding our fellow comrades that violence is not a part of our agenda. We urge the Algerian government to respect and honour the fundamental rights of its citizenry.
Freedom of expression is an inalienable right that no regime may trample on without paying a hefty price for its reprehensible actions. We, Anonymous, demand an end to the state of emergency that has gripped the country since 1992. This law stifles the citizenry’s legitimate aspirations towards liberty, and undermines the basis of the Rule of Law. Following the ongoing, unprecedented demonstrations in Tunisia and Egypt, it is imperative that the Algerian government heed the calls for justice. If the government fails to act accordingly, the situation will continue to deteriorate. A revolutionary wind is blowing across the Arab world, one which will not subside until freedoms are secured. We call upon the Algerian government in good faith to reflect upon the recent events in Tunisia and Egypt, in order to avoid reproducing any form of bloodshed.
We, Anonymous, hereby vow to continue supporting the Algerian people. When faced with injustice, corruption and repression, we will always stand by the oppressed. We invite all Algerians to join us. The beginning of 2011 has proven to the world that change is possible and that even the most authoritarian regimes cannot resist a People united to preserve Mankind’s most basic right: freedom.
BREAD, PEACE, FREEDOM
These are our desires for the benefit of humanity
Do not forget:
WE ARE ANONYMOUS
WE ARE LEGION
WE DO NOT FORGET OPPRESSIVE ACTS
WE DO NOT FORGIVE INJUSTICES
THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM NEEDS YOU NOW
