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.  

To our dear friend Splendid Spoon…..We love you, we miss you and we will not forget you.  Get your ass back to us soon.

A Warning for the RNC & Beyond

FreeAnons Statement on The Fairbanks/Darby Affair:

A Warning for the RNC & Beyond

    Known Federal informant, Brandon Darby has recently made it known that he will be traveling to the RNC in Cleveland later this year.  He has not only solicited informants ( Brandon Darby Twitter ), he has outright stated his goal in attending is to get “anarchists” arrested.  Darby has since expressed support for the neo-nazis who were run out of Sacramento ( Brandon Darby Twitter  ).

FreeAnons has become aware that noted journalist Cassandra Fairbanks has been associating closely with known Federal informant Brandon Darby (see above retweet by Darby).  Given Ms. Fairbanks long history of access to the activist community, this is a troubling development.  We encourage organizers and activists to be aware of this relationship.

Given his history, and the fact that Ms. Fairbanks has stated her intent to join him at the RNC, we feel compelled to issue a specific warning to activists in that community to be aware of both of them.  
More Tweets:  Darby and Fairbanks

We would like to point out explicitly this is not about Ms. Fairbanks’s sexual history or appearance – it is about her current associations with a known Federal informant.  Her past history is relevant only in that
it illustrates the degree of access she has to the activist community.  FreeAnons condemns misogynist attacks based on malice as detracting from the very important need to spread the word of her affiliations.

Further, we condemn calls for violence. Ms. Fairbanks has the right to associate with whom she will – just as the community has the right to condemn and ostracize her for her choices.  As a community we can isolate them and rob them of their ability to profit off the back of our struggle.  By raising our voices loud and spreading the word to every block and community, we can render them moot and harmless without resorting to the tactics of physical force – the tactic of the oppressive state.  

Darby has made a number of inflammatory statements designed to foment violence against himself.  He needs to be attacked to retain his credibility and saleability in the face of Breitbart’s decline.  We urge activists, again particularly at the RNC to avoid playing into this trap.  

Our community was built upon trust – we must continue to be vigilant and look out for each other.  Just as we must avoid witch hunts – we must also avoid letting personal feelings or notoriety stop us from speaking out to protect others.  

Build a wall of silence around the FBI!  Sound the alarm when a Fed is in town!  No excuses for snitches!

Freeanons Endorses September 9th National Prisoner Strike

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.

The prisoners engaging in this work strike are knowingly placing not only what little freedom they have at risk, they are indeed, placing their very lives at risk. They will undoubtedly face reprisals – and these in facilities already known for violence. It is vitally important that support from the outside is strong, and eyes are kept on conditions. Many of our supporters have been doing similar work to what is needed – from recording and d0xing brutal police in the days of Occupy, to post card campaigns and phone blitzes for Jeremy and others post-snitch. The fact is that, you our supporters, are our greatest asset. It is our sincerest hope that by endorsing this call, we inspire you to take action to support these courageous people.

United as 1, Divided by 0 might be old and cliche, but it’s also a scoreboard. United we can, have, and will continue to win, divided we can, have, and will continue to fail.

Join us in another victory against the for-profit prison system and for human rights

Urgent Birthday Letter Writing Campaign

Prison, what a horrible place to spend your birthday.  No family to help you blow out the candles and no friends to toast your birthday with a beer and a song.   The loneliness must be difficult for even the strongest of prisoners.

Freeanons has made every effort to lessen the feelings of isolation by way of mass letter writing campaigns for each birthday.  It’s a great time to say “Hey!  We’re out here fighting for you and we care”!  But as  always, we can’t do it without all of you.  What can be more awesome while waiting for your release date than a ton of birthday wishes from friends?

This month, Matt DeHart and Jay Chase will be celebrating their special day in prison and they need you.  Please, grab a pen, a card, a piece of paper or a postcard and write a message to them.  Show them that no one has forgotten their birthday and we will celebrate their day with them and we will sing on their special day in gathered voices in the hopes that they can hear our wishes.  We need you, they need you and it will warm your heart to do something so easy and yet so awesome.  As always, we thank you for your support of all jailed anons and activists all over the world.  The time to come together is now and the reason is not a selfish one but rather, one of love and kindness.

Piss off a guard, send a card!!  They hate sorting this stuff.

Anonymous Activists Arrested In Florida

On Friday, May 20, twelve Anonymous affiliated activists were arrested for trespassing, while protesting the senseless killing of Corey Jones by police in Palm Beach Gardens on October 8.  In addition to the arrest of peaceful protesters, 2 journalists were also arrested.  This protest was part of  #OpAronberg, a highly supported Op which, again, points out the killing of innocent individuals.  The collective has asked that the officer involved in this shooting be charged with murder rather than sending the case to the grand jury which is essentially run by the state prosecutor.

A group of protesters took their request to the courthouse in Palm Beach County and then made their way to the condo of state Prosecutor Aronberg and were there for only a few short minutes before nearly a dozen police cars converged on the group and began making arrests.  Six were released after providing identification showing that they were Palm Beach residents but  the rest were taken to jail.  The last 6 of the arrested were initially taken to the West Palm Beach police department and then transported to the main jail in Palm Beach County where they were held for nearly 7 hours before they were released, with each being given a court date of June 14.  Two journalists were also arrested that day.  One was arrested for crossing the tracks with the protesters as he documented the event and the other was believed to have been arrested for trespassing on the parking lot of the condominium.

Interestingly, none were arrested for their protest but rather, they were arrested for crossing over the Tri-Rail railroad tracks which was a short walking distance from the condominium.  The protesters were not trespassing on the property of the home of the prosecutor.  The railroad tracks were not blocked by a fence, there were no signs stating it was illegal to cross where they crossed.  It hardly appears that crossing the railroad tracks rises to the level of arresting and detaining activists for hours.  So why all the hoopla over a simple crossing of railroad tracks?

One can make several assumptions or conclusions. Was this an effort to end the free speech of these protesters by way of arrest?  Perhaps it was since the event began at the courthouse and ended outside of the condo of the state Prosecutor.  If this is the case, the Palm Beach County Police should entertain the idea that people have the right to express their unhappiness with a broken system.  If the squashing of free speech is not the reason, can the answer lie in the recent dox of the state prosecutor and the collecting of names of attendees at the protest?  They were arrested and identification was demanded.  Since a recently released article stated that Homeland Security would be notified regarding the release of information of the Prosecutor, was this an arranged plan to gather intel for reasons other than a simple protest and a trot across some railroad tracks?  One may never know…or will we?

There will be an arraignment for all 12 activists on June 14 at 1:00pm at the Palm Beach County courthouse located at 3228 Gun Club Road, West Palm Beach, FL.  As always, we ask that you stand and show your support for these Anons.  Crossing railroad tracks should not be cause to arrest and detain anyone.

The shooting of Corey Jones by a Palm Beach County Sheriff goes to the grand jury on June 30.

We are Freeanons and we will not rest until all Anons are free.
