Why is the US sending some of its best young minds to jail? On FridayJeremy Hammond, a 28-year-old digital activist from Chicago, will learn how many years he is to serve for participating in the 2011 hack of the private security firm Stratfor. “I…
It breaks my heart for someone who did nothing but to bring the truth to the public about the misconduct of corrupt govt.

“Greetings United States gov,
We are the Internet. Again, you are trying to pass this ridiculous CISPA law in order to control and censor the people. This will not stand. You already control the media, the economy, the criminal underworld, your national plots and our energy. YOU WILL NOT GET OUR INTERNET!
The U.S. law that would turn Google, Facebook, and Twitter into legally untouchable government spies just passed the House.
This bill affects everyone — not just U.S. citizens. Anyone with a Facebook account could now have their data shipped directly to the U.S. government. That’s why Internet users overwhelmingly oppose this bill. Over 1.5 million people signed petitions against it. But Congress didn’t listen. This law broadened the state terror and repression of the people. By allowing corporations to track our every action on the internet the state and corporations will be merged and that we have seen before: it is called fascism.
We are going dark on MONDAY April 22nd at 6 AM GMT for 24 hours to protest your illogical and terrorizing bill against the Internet itself. Even with the whole Internet crying out to stop this BILL, the US House of Representatives failed to do so blinded by lobbyist’s money and cum in your eyes. So we will take action ourselves and open your eyes. Every popular/mainstream websites will be black until you, Mr. DronObama promise us to use your VETO power to stop this bill at Senate. Take this as a protest or a warning, as you wish. One thing is for certain, neither you or anyone else in this world can control the Internet, so don’t even try. Stop wasting taxpayers’ money into doing these kind of shenanigans.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not Forgive.
We do not Forget.
This blog may not be as important as Twitter, Facebook or Google, but I’m still joining the blackout. The Internet is our last source of freedom, don’t let them take it away from us. Spread the voice.
I’m gonna’ just straight-up not use the internet on the 22nd as part of the black out protest, I think. I find myself doubting that it’ll make any difference, but this is just bullshit of the highest degree and I want to do what I can to bitch about it.
In 2008, anti-capitalist campaigner Enric Durán borrowed €492,000 ($642,306) from 39 different financial entities with absolutely no hope or intention of paying it back. But—as you might expect from an anti-capitalist campaigner—he didn’t spend it…
Ever since its modern creation, Israel has always used a heavy hand against the slightest provocation from its neighbors and enemies. But today, as Israel laid the hammer down on Hamas after rocket attacks from Gaza, they did so by liveblogging and tweeting the entire operation.

Our generation is drowning.We were told education would save us; we were lied to.
I have over $100k of student loan debt and my combined monthly payments are about $1k. I’m afraid I’ll never pay it all off and won’t be able to afford to start a family someday. It scares the hell out of me.
