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.
he’s only 27 yr old
The 21st century mole demands no payments for his secrets. He sees himself instead as an idealist, a believer in individual sovereignty and freedom from tyranny. Chinese and Russian spooks will not tempt him. Rather, it’s the bits …
Anonymous leads the hacktivism to fight the global corruption.
Their weapons are internet and the information.
Yet utilizes a peaceful protest to stop the injustice.
Included in the leaked emails was evidence suggesting that Stratfor monitored Occupy Wall Street activity for the Department of Homeland Security., Anonymous, Jeremy Hammond, leaks, Lulzsec, Statfor, trial,
a 28 year old getting life for hacking….
meanwhile rapists, child molesters and murderers are walking the streets out on parole etc…
yea another thing to support the fact that the government doesn’t care about the citizens… but if you fuck with them or their money…. then they care.
The hacktivist group Anonymous has announced it will mark the 100th day of the Guantanamo hunger strike with three days of massive protests, calling on supporters to join their global action both on the ground and online.
“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.
Weev got 3 years and a 5 figure fine for basically pointing out a massive flaw in AT&T’s server security
Matthew Keys is facing up to 30 years for “defacing” an online article
A homeless woman got 5 years for sending her kid to a better school.
Meanwhile the rapists got 1 year and the MAX they could have gotten was 4 years (cause they could only be held till they were 21)
* this was done by the hacker group AntiSec by breaching FBI
* The Scumbag Federal Reserve Bank
Time Magazine readers vote Anonymous most influential figure
The readers of Time Magazine have spoken. The hacktivist group received the most votes in a Time Magazine poll as the most influential figure among all platforms. The group which is nameless, faceless and leaderless has been causing mischief online all in the name of justice. Should we be surprised?
* Stop SOPA aka “STOP ONLINE PIRACY ACT.”
