  7. For years I have been an activist. I’ve been to many marches. I have been to many protests. I have suffered through riot cops and teargas. I’ve stood in solidarity for many causes. I have stood for the environment, protested against government policies, yelled at the top of my lungs about war, marched in support of gay and lesbian marriage, made pro-choice signs, gone to planning meetings…you get the point.
  9. This is an old model of activism. It is still a very valid form of activism and it can get things done, but there is a new wave of activism. It’s called Anonymous.
  11. With Anonymous, you can connect with people from all over the world and accomplish so many things in such a short period of time. Things move fast with Anonymous and, quite frankly, far more efficiently then a meeting with a bunch of people face to face. You no longer have to spend weeks and weeks planning a demonstration. All you need is a computer (or smartphone). When things need to get done, there are always people around ready to step up and join in. Look at OpearationPayback, OpTunisia, OpEgypt, OpLibya and so many others, for example. So much has been accomplished in the last few months. I still sit here in wonder.
  13. You can call it hacktivism if you want, but that would not be accurate. There any many people in the Anonymous/Antisec movement who do not have these skills. While these skills are very helpful and useful, there are many other ways to participate. You can help write press releases, do research, make art, share ideas, sing a song, do some graffiti, write an article, make a blog, twitter your heart out or just be a witness. The possibilities are endless.
  15. That’s the beauty of Anonymous, it’s a world of endless possibilities. Take it and run.
  17. You don’t have to be a hacker to be Anonymous.
  18. You don’t have do DDOS to be Anonymous.
  19. Just be yourself, Anonymously.
  21. Come and share your #voice.
