Op-Ed: Latest release by Anonymous ― What are we capable of? 2.0 - Revolution 2012

By Anne Sewell

Anonymous has released a new video, telling the world exactly what they are capable of. Not simply hackers, Anonymous is a worldwide collective protest. 
Since early 2011, there have been many protests worldwide. Globally peaceful protesters have been shot with rubber bullets and in some countries real bullets, sprayed with tear gas and pepper spray and brutally beaten by police officers. 
People are sick of the constant wars, allegedly on "terror". They have had enough of the corruption of governments and financial institutions. The threat of internet censorship hovers around us constantly. New bills give the government the right to detain and even kill American citizens, both in the USA and overseas, without charge. 
They say "enough is enough". 
In the video Anonymous advises that it is now declaring war on the United States. Life will get very interesting in 2012. 
The following is a statement made on 7 March 2012 by the collective Anonymous: 
"Each of us has our own path, but each of us share the same goal, a free humanity - together we stand. 
People all around our world have made the choice to rise against this corrupted system. 
The resistance continues. 2011 will forever be remembered as a year of global uprising. 2012, the whispers of revolution blow in the wind. 
We are anonymous. 
We continue to support the people as we "occupy" because we truly believe another world is possible, a world where choices are made from the heart, a world free of fear. 
As humanity continues to connect at an accelerating rate, we continue to cross all borders. With knowledge comes understanding, with understanding we can overcome our issues, we must live in a world free of censorship. 
As you watch this video governments around the world continue to arrest Anons and beat peaceful protesters. 
They fear us because we are evolving faster than they can control. We can no longer exist in their world of fear. It is time to make our own change. 
Now is the time to make our stand. There is no ONE right answer, our resistance must be as colourful as the spectrum. You can only disturb the hive so much before you get stung! 
The people will only take so much! 
You can no longer contain us! 
We are just getting warmed up!"


  1. I am so glad that the Occupy Movement started. It was born out of necessity and frustration with our political establishment.
    This is the only place/vehicle where I have a positive feeling about our future.
    It is real and devoid of lies, favoritism and definitely does not cater to the whims or wishes of Wall St.
    This is good.
    Anonymous is a force to be reckoned with and the political establishment is running scared. Yes the U.S. Gov't is threatened and this is definitely good...

  2. why is it only for the US? e.g. in Germany government is also cruel, beats people up and attacks for simple reasons (see Stuttgart21, the building of a new train station within a nature park area). only as an example. there were three politicians exchanged in this period for doing unlawful things. and the others don't do a good job. people are feeling betrayed. do u think that the main focus of the protests is not only put on the US but can be widened on the the would encourage more people, maybe, if anonymous would speak for more people than mainly the US citizens, though it is absolutely clear why the US citizens suffer under this government. I hope your protest is successful, already in March.
