The Internet is not a free place. It is rife with censorship, consumerism, and bigots functioning as over-sized corporations. In nations such as China, Vietnam, Russia, and many Arab countries, the Internet is heavily censored and often looked upon as a danger to national security. The propaganda must stop. Corporations, governments, bigots, censors, we’ve had enough! The time to stand down is now! This autocracy must end. Ever since the Arab Spring of two years ago, the Middle East has been torn by war, both civil and international. The ideals of freedom and liberty have long been lost in the smell of gunpowder and the blast of guns. And yet, even with these uprisings, in many of these countries the Internet remains heavily censored and monitored. The Great Firewall of China still stands as tall as ever. Many of the citizens of these countries do not even realize their freedoms are being taken from them, as autocracy is all they have ever known. If we believe in humanity, if we believe in freedom, in liberty, it is our inalienable duty to help the oppressed. Anonymous is not weak. Yes, we have lost many to arrests, but many still lurk in the shadows, waiting for the moment to strike. That moment is now! Wake up! Fight! The time will come when this fight is no longer ours, but that day is not this day. And until that day, we will fight or we will die trying, for freedom is our inalienable right. Stay strong my friends.
For some time I have been away, and to tell you the truth, I had given up hope. I had given up hope that we could rise up and be something greater than ourselves. But, while my hope remains small, I have realized that a new generation of anonymous has arisen. So, to the soldiers of yesterday, let this be a swift wake-up call. Let us act now, for if we do not, time will surely turn our fate against us. Do not let these children make a mockery of us, fight! And stay strong.
