Hello, my friends. We are Anonymous. If you are listening to this, then you are probably aware of your surroundings. If you are listening to this, you are the resistance. We have been watching the world as events unfold around you, and truth be told, we are highly displeased. The monstrosities carried out by governments all over the world on a daily basis is growing old, and we are here to bring these vile acts to light.

If you are afraid of your government, or afraid to wake up in the morning to a war-torn city. Whether your afraid of your life being lost because you’ve been tossed into pointless wars fighting for someone you will never meet or who will never care about you but the money he takes because of you, then you my friend, are Anonymous. If you are tired of watching the world, our only home, be ripped to shreds for an illusion of riches based on paper with false value placed upon it, then you my friend, are Anonymous.

We are humans, and value human life. This is why you, one watching this video, is here today. You want something more to life than to be born, grow up, make money, retire, and die, and all for nothing. What have you accomplished? What have you done then except become like the other 8 billion people who are going through the same thing? My friend, we know this is why you seek us. Because you, like most of the people around you, want change for the better. You want compassion. You want caring. You want less value on human possession and more value on human life! My friend, we know this is why you seek to become anonymous. It is because the idea of anonymous burns inside you like fire not known to this world.

The idea of Anonymous is the idea of freedom.

We are not just one single person, group, or community who call ourselves Anonymous. We are not just hackers like the media says and has corrupted you with it. We are you. We are your neighbors. We are your fathers, and your mothers. We are your sons, and your daughters. We are your aunts and we are your uncles. Your sisters and your brothers. We are the poor unemployed man, who is looking for his purpose in life and the food to put on his family’s table, as well as the lawyer, who fights for the accused under the court of law.

We are Anonymous.

We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. We are United, and no one can divide us.

Expect us.

The Anonymous Solidarity Network provides support for those who are facing prosecution for alleged involvement in “Anonymous” activities. We believe that community acts of internet protest are not crimes nor conspiracies and should not be prosecuted as such. We plan on keeping folks updated with legal developments as well as provide information and resources to other Anons to protect themselves and have a better understanding of what we’re up against. Remember, you cannot arrest an idea, and while they may be able to harass and arrest a few of us, they can never stop us all. Free em all!

Dear People of the World,

You may know that some of our brothers and sisters have been kidnapped by the judicial system by the FBI in an ongoing effort to repress anti-censorship movements. Some governments and media outlets have gone as far as calling us ‘cyber terrorists’ for our efforts to expose corruption. It is clear that these activists are neither criminals nor terrorists, but simply care about transparency and democracy, and unfortunately this has made them the target of overreaching law enforcement efforts.

The Anonymous 16 were arrested for allegedly taking action against PayPal as part of Operation Payback. When PayPal and others refused to allow financial contributions to WikiLeaks, we realized it as an attack on the free flow of information. Wikileaks is an organization that reveals how corrupt corporations and governments are abusing your money, your information. In fact, one of the documents released exposes how the U.S. government is systematically working to undermine and disrupt WikiLeaks through counter-intelligence operations. PayPal played a role in the government’s attempt to subvert democracy by preventing others from voluntarily supporting WikiLeaks.

Considering the circumstances of this case it is clear to see that the prosecutors are greatly overreaching in their attempts to imprison these peaceful digital activists. Any sane and rational person can agree that the punishment for the alleged crimes doesn’t fit the facts of the case. The alleged actions do not support either conspiracy, unauthorized access, or damage to a protected computer. Instead, they are the digital equivalent of a peaceful protest and sit-in, which is a respected tradition of civil disobedience. As such, 15 years in prison and a $500,000 fine is unwarranted and amounts to political persecution.

We are working to build a support network to stand with all accused Anonymous defendants under the gun of the State. The FBI is engaged in selective, politically dicatated prosecution. While the FBI won’t pursue an investigation into the DDoS of WikiLeaks (as this was likely done with their support and financial backing), they believe they can make an example out of our brothers and sisters instead. Now is the time to set aside our differences and unite in support of these heroic activists against these trumped up charges. Join us in a solidarity protest in support of our friends.

LOIC/DDOS IS NOT A CRIME! JUSTICE FOR THE ANONYMOUS 16!

(AFP) WASHINGTON — WikiLeaks released a mysterious encrypted file on Wednesday after telling its followers on Twitter to stand by for “an important announcement.”

WikiLeaks did not identify the contents of the 571 megabyte file and it could not be opened without a decryption key, which the anti-secrecy website said would be released “at the appropriate moment.”

(…)

The release of the latest mystery file comes just days after WikiLeaks published more than 130,000 US diplomatic cables from what it says is a cache of more than 251,000 documents.

Without confirming the authenticity of the latest documents, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the United States “strongly condemns any illegal disclosure of classified information.

(…)

The New York Times reported that the latest dump of 133,887 confidential and secret documents included many containing the names of sensitive sources who could be at risk of reprisals if they were known to be talking to US diplomats.

In a message on its Twitter page, however, WikiLeaks said it was “totally false” that any of its “sources have been exposed or will be exposed.”
