#OperationPayback Press Release: Anonymous FBI Arrests
These actions should not go unanswered.
Those who were arrested believe in a cause, believe in an idea, believe in all of us. We must respond with a real and concentrated effort to redress these arrests. We, as Anonymous, have a very real responsibility to these people, who were jailed fighting for freedom, so we can continue to fight for theirs.
Have you ever joined a sit in, taken part in a strike, marched in the street, or attempted to block access to a building in protest? Anon's actions are the cyber equivalent of these traditional forms of protest, arresting our activists for doing this is a crime against freedom and democracy. But how could our actions be seen and accepted as real protests by governments, when we are shown daily, that they only tolerate demonstrations that serve their own purposes...
Anonymous has now been falsely labelled as a "terrorist group"; people are getting arrested for this unjust accusation and it has become a dirty cat and mouse game with incalculable and uncontrollable consequences. All our actions can be directly compared to protesting on the street... is that terrorism? How could anyone know and prove that an individual belongs to this "group"? Governments can now arrest any activist under this "label" without a real charge and nothing to prove that they belong to or identify with Anonymous. Even though Anonymous is not a "group" it is an idea shared by all who value freedom and justice.
Governments can achieve nothing by attempting to silence participants in Anonymous, as for every one of us that falls, ten more will take their place.
People of the world... do not forget that Anonymous fights not for our own freedom, but for the freedom of everyone, including You.
"When injustice becomes law, rebellion becomes duty" -- Thomas Jefferson
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
