“The internet has the power to bring down regimes – that’s why it terrifies them. That’s why they now monitor all of our phone calls, they monitor our emails, and they monitor our free speech. It terrifies them,” one London-based Anonymous member told RT.

13:40 GMT:

 

Protesters take to the streets in Sydney, Australia, bearing signs with slogans such as :“The corrupt fear us. The honest support us. The heroic join us.”People also marched in Adelaide demanding that people “wake up”.

The march is organized for November 5 in commemoration of Guy Fawkes Day, and the event, according to hacktivist group Anonymous, has for the past two consecutive years organized “The Largest World Protest” according to a statement on the website.

“It is our aim to shed light on corrupt government in order to set people free from oppression,” the group said.

Activists have shielded their faces to take to the streets of some 481 towns and cities worldwide.

Anonymous Now: Million Mask March descends on London

The million mask march in London, England, is tomorrow . . .  -LW

 Organized by the global hacktivist group Anonymous, the London protest will march from Trafalgar Square and finish at the Houses of Parliament.The Million Mask March will course through London on Wednesday November 5. The march, in which all demonstrators obscure their faces to protect their identity, is in protest against austerity, mass surveillance and attacks on human rights.

It is unknown how many demonstrators will join the march, as pleas from police for information have remained unanswered.

In 2013 the event gathered crowds of more than 2,500. The Facebook event suggests over 6,000 people may attend this year.

Speaking to RT, an Anonymous source said the Million Mask March, a tradition began in 2011, was originally called OpVendetta, and initially only gathered a crowd of 50.

Within a year, the following had grown to 2,000, and in 2013 the decision was made to rename the march the “Million Mask March,” the source said.

In 2013, there were over 400 Anonymous demonstrations worldwide, held to coincide with the annual British tradition of Bonfire Night of November 5, the date on which a group of dissident plotters tried to blow up parliament in 1605. Attendants often wear a Guy Fawkes mask, made famous by the 2005 film V for Vendetta, which has become the group’s trademark disguise.

The global protests took place last year in various world cities including Vancouver, Tel Aviv, Dublin, Paris, Chicago and Sydney.

RT’s Anonymous source said: “It’s a night of grievance on a night that’s historically about parliament and how it’s not always working in the people’s interests.”

“We burn an effigy of Guy Fawkes on a fire each year as a warning against standing against parliament so we just felt it would be symbolic,” they added.

In the lead up to the march, Anonymous sent a direct message to global bodies of power.

“To oppressive governments, we say this: we do not expect our campaign to be completed in a short time frame. However, you will not prevail against the angry masses of the body politic.”

The message further addresses the British government, saying they have “made an enemy of Anonymous,” and that they have “angered them considerably.”

This annual protest against austerity comes after a wave of protests and strikes swept through the UK during September and October.

On October 12, National Health Service (NHS) workers staged a strike over an ongoing pay dispute. The four hour strike marked the first time in history in which nurses have taken strike action.

Three days later, on October 15, the Public Commercial Services union (PCS) walked out over a 1 percent pay rise cap – a pay cut in real terms. Some 200,000 public sector workers walked out for 24 hours, causing nationwide disruption to job centers, museums and courts.

More recently, police are alleged to have employed excessive violence against Occupy Democracy protesters in Parliament Square, forcibly removing tarpaulins and belongings and making over 40 arrests.

The Metropolitan Police say they wish to engage with Anonymous so they can“work together to ensure they can protest safely.”

Chief Superintendent Pippa Mills said they are trying to contact Anonymous, but“no one has come forward.”

“We are keen to talk with them to ensure they are able to protest; it is important that they talk to us so that we can work together to achieve a safe and successful event.”

Anonymous: Mass Arrests are Soon to Begin

Might this coincide with Monday’s financial war games involving the US and UK banks? Let us hope and pray. -LW

Hello citizens of the world.

We are Anonymous. We bring you this message in peace, and we hope it finds you well. Currently, as we are sure you have heard at this point, there is something terribly wrong with the way life has been on a global scale.

Mass Arrests of 10,000 global cabal members are nearing its time of passing.

Very soon, you will witness the world-wide mass arrests of the many criminal cabal members.

These arrests will mean the removal of the final obstacles that will allow for the implementation of the new abundance systems that are ready to immediately free humanity from the current economy and its falsely imposed conditions of debt and poverty.

There have been many men and women dedicated to this cause who have been working diligently in secret for years to bring us to this moment and are so eager to present to humanity the new system that will immediately redistribute abundance to all of humanity and release humanity from the mundane life it has known. Freedom is to be returned to the people.

The release of technologies and other suppressed elements that are to be introduced will follow to assist this transition.

The news of these mass arrests will come sudden and come hard, and many whom are unprepared with an understanding as to why may feel shocked and confused to witness so many taken into custody.

These many men and women, however, have served for the perpetuation of your enslavement and all have actively taken part in serious crimes against the people.

Certain big media groups have agreed to cover these events and assist in the disclosure timeline. These arrests will be televised and fully shared with you for it is owed to the people of the world that they witness the very moments and actions taken that will mean your release from the control of these many people whom have for so long worked to serve the control and exploitation of humanity.

This manipulation will end and humanity will enter into a new life.

With this in mind, you can look upon these arrests without fear and acknowledge what they mean for your world.

There are many sources of this type of liberating information and it is requested that this information is made available to all who may, or may not, choose to at least familiarize themselves with it, for all efforts to spread this information are valuable and will help dispel fears and lessen the impact.

True freedom is to be returned to you soon.

We are Anonymous!
We are Legion!
We stand for the people of the world!
We are not going to forget what you have done.
Your actions will not go unpunished.
Expect us.

‘Anonymous’ hacker group declares cyber war on Hong Kong government, police

Citing mistreatment against Occupy Central protesters, the self-styled ‘hacktivist’ group threatens to disrupt Hong Kong government websites

Hacker group Anonymous has declared war on the Hong Kong government and hacked into a number of Hong Kong websites, citing the treatment of protesters during Occupy Central as the main impetus for the attack.

In a video sent to American news portal News2share on Wednesday, Anonymous compares the tear gas and pepper spray used by Hong Kong riot police on Occupy Central protesters to American police tactics used in Ferguson, Missouri earlier this year.

The group also threatens to disclose personal information and deface multiple Hong Kong websites over the coming days. Due to the nebulous nature of Anonymous, it is almost impossible to verify the extent of the attacks and the locations and identities of the hackers behind them.

Watch: Anonymous declares cyber warfare on Hong Kong (via News2share)

The full transcript of the video is as follows:

Greetings, world. We are Anonymous.

It has come to our attention that recent tactics used against peaceful protesters here in the United States have found their way to Hong Kong. To the protesters in Hong Kong, we have heard your plea for help. Take heart and take to your streets. You are not alone in this fight. Anonymous members all over the world stand with you, and will help in your fight for democracy.

To the Hong Kong police and any others that are called to the protests, we are watching you very closely and have already begun to wage war on you for your inhumane actions against your own citizens. If you continue to abuse, harass or harm protesters, we will continue to deface and take every web-based asset of your government off line. That Is not a threat. It is a promise.

Attacking protesters will result in releasing personal information of all of your government officials. We will seize all your databases and e-mail pools and dump them on the Internet. This is your first and only warning. The time has come for democracy for the citizens of Hong Kong. The line has been drawn in the sand. The police are to protect, not trample on, the freedoms and democracy of their citizens. Until justice prevails, hack and protest will replace it. The cause of security and democracy will be grounds for the assault on your virtual infrastructure. Take this opportunity to stand down while we give it to you, or it will get a lot worse.

Operation Hong Kong engaged. We are Anonymous. We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Government of Hong Kong, expect us.

A quick look at the websites hacked by Anonymous shows garbled homepages complete with blaring music, pictures of the group’s logo and a block of text which reads: “We Are Sick And Tired Of your Bullsh*t! This is Operation HongKong. We Will Not Stop. We Will Not Give Up! Youve Pissed All The Anons Off #SaveHongKong #OpHongKong #Anonymous# #Hacked”

Despite these vehement threats, the hacks thus far appear to be not on government websites but rather small organisations – including an Autism Partnership site – registered with a .hk domain name.

Ironically, at least one of the sites, owned by Nantong Jiehao Machine Equipment, features simplified Chinese and appears to be based in mainland China, despite the .hk registration.

News of Anonymous’ hack attack has been slowly spreading on Twitter, with several accounts associated with the group either tweeting messages related to Hong Kong or spreading news of the attack via the #OpHK hashtag.

Anonymous, which considers itself an international network of “hacktivists”, has become well known for hijacking government and business websites and unleashing distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks – where sites are continuously bombarded with traffic until their servers overload.

In the past, Anonymous has achieved renown for hacking businesses including Visa and Sony, as well as government websites in the US, Singapore, and Israel. The group has publicly announced its support of freedom of speech, and has endorsed WikiLeaks on multiple occasions.

Americans Have Been Bamboozled: The Two US Constitutions [videos]

The word seems to be getting out. These two videos would be good tools to share toward waking up more Americans.  Perhaps if they understand what transpired so long ago; that they were deceived and continue to be; that they don’t live where they believe they do; that they are subject to the malignant whims of a shadow government, that the rights they believed they had don’t exist—they will rise up and do what needs to be done to take their country back.  ~ BP

Message from Anonymous to Obama: Do You See What We See? [video]

This is a fantastic video for Americans who need a nudge from the Universe to kick them out of bed, but allow me to say a few words about Obama.

Obama is a controversial figure, to say the least, but we’ve been reminded many times that NOTHING is what it seems. We can’t take anything at face value and we certainly can’t take the lamestream media’s word for anything.

For years, the Lightworker community has been divided as to whether Obama is of the Light or the dark.

We’ve been told he was groomed for this position, to take us from tyranny to freedom, yet his actions seem to belie this.

There was a bit of intel at some point in the past year or so—and I don’t recall the source, but it was one I trusted—I think David Wilcock—and they said (I’m paraphrasing) that as soon as Obama finished his acceptance speech after winning the election for his first term, the Bush boys took him aside and told him that he had better not try to be a hero or make any changes; that he had better be prepared to take orders from them or they would rape his daughters and make him watch; that he realized at the moment that “the nigger just became a scapegoat”—I believe those were the words the new president uttered as the truth hit him squarely between the eyes.

I’m sorry to even raise such a topic, but let’s be realistic.

Obama is NOT free to make decisions. He probably exercizes less free will than WE do. Unfortunately, he IS  a scapegoat, a puppet, a pawn, a fall guy. They set him up. He has to do what the cabal says or else… and he’s probably praying along with us that this nightmare ends soon.

What would you do in his place? He’s the last person on Earth I’d want to trade places with right now, I can tell you.

It’s unfortunate that America is in the situation it is, but I doubt Obama is executing his own cutthroat agenda. He merely holds signing authority and takes all the flack while the real thieves and murderers cower behind the scenes counting their gold, and most common men have never even heard their names.

If I were Obama, at this stage I think I would be secretly begging The  People to arrest me and remove my family and I from the White House. What a relief that would be!

The ruthless animals who run the globe care for no one but themselves. They will do whatever it takes to play the game to win, but they will lose, and the truth about everything will be known.

We probably need to reserve judgment on a lot of things, and a lot of people… because there is very little we know for certain.

But don’t take my word for it. For those who didn’t see this link in the comments, an article from Gordon Duff of ‘Veterans Today’ that cuts to the heart of the matter: The Obama “Un-Presidency”.

With the above in mind, yes! America—watch the video and understand what reality is, and step up and do something about it.

But it’s not a witch hunt. It’s anarchy in the true sense of the word, which is responding to chaos by tearing down what doesn’t work and rebuilding something new on the old foundations until a new, viable structure rises that works for The People.

It absolutely CAN BE DONE, as Jesse Ventura says in the video. Absolutely—but the word “done” comes from ‘DO’. What will Americans DO? And will it be enough?

‘Baby Bush’ was right about ONE thing, at least. Americans will prevail.

Once the world helps free America, America will then help free the world.  It’s do-or-die time. Let’s be careful out there. ~ BP
