"We are not dead. We will never be dead...because we were never alive to begin with. An idea does not have a lifespan. An idea can only be forgotten..."
Citizens of the World,
We are Anonymous.
Over the past several months, Anonymous as a collective, has been in the shadows, observant and vigilant. We've witnessed as dictators pillaged their lands and murdered their people. We've witnessed as governments gave in to the power of unions. We've witnessed as officials oppressed their people and their ability to express themselves by shutting down their source of communication, the internet.
This video's purpose is to reassure the people, that we are still with you. We have not forgotten our pledge to expose corruption and protect the internet by any means necessary. We also did not forget our allegiance to the people.
However, we speak directly to the people. To you. We cannot efficiently function as a system of protection unless you help us do so. You cannot expect us to "do everything" so to speak. You must help us, so that we are able to help you.
Anonymous will always be for the people and by the people, because they are us, and we are them.
We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We are the People. We do not forgive. We do not forget.
