Greetings world, we are Anonymous.
It is with great concern that we find ourselves still associated in the eyes of the public with Julian Assange and what has become Wikiileaks.
We do not support nor do we endorse Julian Assange, Vladimir Putin, or Donald Trump. We reject fascism and all who promote it. Wikileaks under Julian Assange is a front for several corrupt state actors like Russia and the Assad regime in Syria which the majority of Anonymous have always opposed. Some people didn’t seem to notice that Assange’s Wikileaks party backed the right wing and visited Assad in 2012. We did. Wikileaks under Julian Assange is celebrated by all we oppose.
In 2010, Wikileaks was helped by a lot of very good people who all left or were arrested long ago. Julian Assange has managed to drive out everyone good, who were of service to the people and a better world. He has used their efforts and the previous support from Anonymous to further an agenda in complete opposition to their and our beliefs. He and an army of bots promote Russia, Assad, Wikileaks and Trump in the name of Anonymous and ride off a humanitarian reputation that was not created by Assange or anyone currently with the organization.
We have tried to bring the public as much information as possible during the recent US election and every election. We tried to expose Trump’s very real links to child trafficking and mafia circles and had our work drowned out by an asinine story about ‘spirit cooking’ pushed by Assange onto our hashtags. He used the megaphone we all built to promote a man who will normalize fascism and hate across the globe.
He suppressed information in the Syria files about 2 billion dollars in payments from Russia to Syria.
He vilified Panama Papers for being ‘biased’ against Russia (after stealing credit for their work).
He jeered at Parisians under attack as he is now jeering at women and minorities in the US fearing for their safety
Julian Assange and his current band of sycophants and handlers have turned Wikileaks into a symbol of fascism and disillusionment to those who worked hard and risked their very lives to create and protect it.
They work to discredit and silence all who oppose Julian Assange but supported the 2010 Wikileaks. They scream asylum for “Assange and Snowden” who are not in prison but ignore refugees and our Anonymous comrades and other brave fighters actually in prison. Jeremy Hammond and Chelesea Manning are frequently in solitary confinement (torture) and have their human rights taken from them constantly. They and others gave Wikileaks their lives with the idea that it would help reveal the truth and spark steps towards justice. Julian Assange has taken every opportunity to destroy their work, smear their credbility, and rewrite a history where those who did the work do not exist, only a cult hero named Julian Assange does.
We reject tyrant coups, including the one Julian Assange has attempted to conduct over
Wikileaks and Anonymous.
We reject Julian Assange and everything he stands for. We strongly discourage anyone from leaking to him, listening to him or giving him money.
Free Jeremy Hammond.
Free Chelsea Manning.
We are Anonymous.
We are everywhere.
We are legion.
We are those you have left without a home.
We are those you have tortured.
We are those you have murdered.
We are voiceless no more.
The world will change. We will change it.
Tyrants of the World,
