You might be surprised by what’s behind the mask. People, young and old, male and female, perhaps not unlike you. Keeping with the tradition that there is no “official” branch of Anonymous, this video serves to illustrate that anyone and everyone is capable of uniting under a common identity, or the guarded protection thereof. My sincere apologies to those who no habla Español.
As part of the ongoing Occupy Wall Street protests, Anonymous has released a new video announcing plans to strike the New York Stock Exchange with a DDoS attack on October 10th. Before you get too excited, the stock market can still function without NYSE.com.
Footage of protestors being penned-up and pepper-sprayed Saturday has raised the ire of Anonymous, who has reportedly identified the officer from the video. Will Anon’s amateur sleuthing bring further retaliation?
If all goes according to plan, 20,000 people will camp out on Wall Street to demand the end of corporate personhood. Will September 17th bring the radical democratic shift our country needs?
Did you know that every time someone buys a Guy Fakwes mask, to self-identify with the decentralized hacker collective known as Anonymous, Warner Brothers gets paid? The image of Anonymous is nothing more than another revenue stream to Time Warner. Time to abandon the dumb “V for Vendetta” image.
