Hello world! Some days have passed since Julian Assange was arrested and since then, I have been watching the news all around, including facebook and twitter posts and comments. There is only one conclusion I can get to: people everywhere (most of them, not all) are idolizing Julian Assange…for them he is like a God, and if you try to comment on their posts/pages, and you put a word that they think it’s not ok, they become mad, with a great possibility of having rocks thrown at you (thankfully we are on the interwebz!). Now let me tell you something else:
The new Dean of the Boston University School of Law probably didn’t know that one of its lecturers is persecuting a Rolling Stone-featured human rights activist for defending the life of a child in a wheelchair who was being tortured!
“We would like to remind everyone not to click links posted to the channel,” is a simple yet effective message with which anyone that has spent time on IRC should be familiar. It serves as a warning, and it says: “Be smart and stay safe.” We are FreeAnons and for years we have witnessed the prosecution of our brothers and sisters. As FreeAnons, counter operations are an important part of our mission. With the recent activities in Ohio, we would like to share a few messages of our own:
It’s 2018, and apparently Anonymous is dead? “Give it a rest,” they say, or “put the mask away!” It’s 2018, and people on social media cringe at pictures of Guy Fawkes. It’s 2018, and the FBI openly mocks our brothers and sisters in court. It’s 2018… June 1st, and it’s a Friday. Fuck the FBI! It’s 2018, and Jeremy Hammond has been held since 2012! It’s 2018, and this will be Matthew Dehart’s 7th birthday spent in a prison cell. It’s 2018, and we’re still here! We are the Anonymous Solidarity Network, and until every Anon is free we will attest to the Anonymous creed. We do not forgive and we do not forget! Free them all!
