Anonymous

















An entity describing themselves/itself as "Anonymous" has taken it upon themselves to launch its own campaign against tyranny and injustice. Their slogan or tag line is "We are legion. We do not forget. We do not forgive." Their main method of attack is by hacking websites and databases of organisations or persons they deem running against the spirit of freedom and democracy. They do not seem to support violence.

In a world where governments and corporations have taken a very uncooperative stance towards the people they serve an environment conducive to these kinds of organisations has been created. People in the West have all but given up on trying to protest injustice on the streets as big money is just too powerful. Now the new frontline may be cyberspace where the playing fields seem more level, for now.
