Anonymous wants to occupy the planet

First Wall Street, then the world
Wed Sep 28 2011, 15:04

HACKTIVIST GROUP Anonymous is calling on its members to take the momentum surrounding its occupation of Wall Street and spread it across the globe.

A video message posted to Youtube by the Anonpress shows the usual masked figure intoning the group's plans over a clanging soundtrack. They rarely make for enjoyable viewing, but the message is there, and the message is to protest everywhere.

Protests are already planned globally, such as an occupation of the London Canary Wharf financial district, and the group said it wants to take its "Tienanmen Square moment" further.

"This is about a collective 99.9 per cent that will not longer stand for corruption and greed that is rampant in our governing bodies. Spread this message like the plague," says the faceless narrator.

"This is part of a global movement. The more authoritarian they act the more we will resist. We do not forgive. we do not forget. We are silent no more."

The day will take place next month, and could be on October 31 when the occupation of London is expected to start. Until then the group has a long list of cities that have recently started supporting groups.

With occupations of Chicago and Los Angeles also slated to begin the group might start to live up to its promise that it is "everywhere and legion". µ
