Barrett Brown is free! Finally, and upon release our friend wasted no time making his way to the nearest McDonald’s to take in the (apparently) missed delight of a greasy breakfast. More than 4 years of questionable confinement for a crime you didn’t commit, and being convicted of multiple, seemingly made-up-on-the-spot charges, can make a fella hungry. Barrett was released, early and with conditions, after serving much of his nearly 5 year sentence in Three Rivers federal correctional institution in San Antonio with good behavior. Freeanons and all of AnonOps would like to extend our support, as well as the finest chefs The Internet Hate Machine can manage to our friend.
They Need To Hear From You
Lauren Pespisa, aka Splendid Spoon, a friend to so many, has been jailed in Massachusetts. You may recognize Lauren from the documentary The Hacker Wars if you are not already familiar with this beautiful lady. All who know Lauren will attest to the love they have for her. She’s been committed to change for as long as we’ve known her. She is our family and at this time, she finds herself alone and in prison. Lauren is in dire need of your letters of support and love. We ask you at this time to please do not allow your comrade to feel alone and forgotten. Grab a pen and paper and send her a message.
FreeAnons Statement on The Fairbanks/Darby Affair:
FreeAnons, the Anonymous Solidarity Network dedicated to supporting imprisoned hacktivists, welcomes the call for a coordinated national prison strike on September 9th in protest of modern day slavery. As an organization which aims to provide material and moral support to our sisters and brothers behind the walls, we are acutely aware of the degraded situation of not only our prison systems, but of the entire criminal justice system. We see the effects daily in the families we work with, in the stories we receive from inside, and the legal defense work we do to try and keep people out. Most of all, however, we see the growing determination and unity radiating from behind the bars, as the corrupt system forces a response. It is this determination and unity in which we find our inspiration.
