We believe that free speech is non-negotiable.

Beneath this mask there is an idea .... and ideas are bulletproof.

We believe that free speech is non-negotiable.

The quality of an idea matters more than its authorship. The radical notion that information should be free is now diffusing actively throughout the global consciousness.

We are done waiting for someone to save us from tyranny and censorship. The internet needs champions and we will rise. We didn't start this to destroy a cult; we took on a cult to defend free speech.

Tens of thousands strong, we lie in wait as the real battle approaches. We are Anonymous and so are you.

Stand up and fight. Every city. Everywhere. Everywhen.
Expect us.
Since its inception, the internet has provided new ways for people all over the world to exercise the rights of free speech, freedom of the press and freedom of assembly. These rights are not simply the benefits of a free society - they are the very means of preserving that society's freedom.

The recent increase in government interference with these freedoms coincides with the failure of the corporate media to fulfill their vital role in checking the abuse of authority. Censorship and journalistic abdication have left citizens unaware and unable to hold their governments accountable.

WikiLeaks has moved to fill the void left by traditional news media, providing the necessary information for citizens to hold their governments to account. Yet it has not been granted the legal protections generally afforded to journalists. Instead, the organization has been vilified and monetary support has been blocked by governments and private corporations.

The vitriol aimed at WikiLeaks demonstrates an unsettling disregard for the fundamental freedom to exchange information and express ideas. Members of a free society must not allow information to be suppressed simply because it inconveniences those in power. We share the responsibility to defend vital liberties. The time to act is now.

We are Anonymous, a leaderless movement that has worked tirelessly to oppose all forms of Internet censorship worldwide, from DMCA abuses to government mandated content filters. Our initiatives include supporting dissenting groups in Iran, Zimbabwe and Tunisia, as well as waging the highly visible information battle against the Church of Scientology.

We are now prepared to take the fight to the world stage. Join us. Stand with us to defend your freedoms. We are Anonymous and so are you.
