Activist, musician, DJ, producer, and steadfast supporter of FreeAnons – Ivan Munoz has announced an upcoming tour in which he will raise awareness about issues surrounding whisteblowers and hacktivists. Here’s his background:

Since 2005 I have been making music and touring the world with talented musicians playing hard electronic music in an attempt to shake people’s conscience about the problems we face in our world.

Mixing elements of electronics music and metal I have been able to create a very powerful mix that allowed me to share the stage and collaborate with many of my favorite musical heroes like Nine Inch Nails, Public Enemy, Clawfinger, Ministry, Die Krupps and many more.

Last year I started work on my new album “Turning Point” and I was very concerned about the government persecution of whistleblowers like Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden as well as hacktivists like Julian Assange and Jeremy Hammond.

That’s why I decided to donate the song “It’s Our Time” to collect funds for the people from Anonymous in jail. (For more information please visit #opourtime)

I also donated another version of this song to the compilation Defcon 21 (Buy it here!) to collect funds for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, one of the few organizations that protects internet freedom around the world. (For more information please visit www.eff.org)

He’s launched a crowdfunding campaign to take action to the next level and start a new tour, #Opourtime 2014, with Vigilante to promote his last single “It’s Our time” and to spread awareness about the Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, Edward Snowden and FreeAnons cases. You can follow him on twitter @vigilanteband. You can also follow @SaveManning , @JulianAssange and @freeanons to support his effort. We offer him our sincere thanks and appreciation for, once again, thinking of us and going the distance for FreeAnons.

As many of you know, #OpPenPal began as #OpValentine approximately one year ago, when a group of activists banded together to encourage the people of the interwebz to send love via snail mail to our imprisoned comrades for Valentine’s day. (Not to buy in to the corporate holiday, but to use it as an excuse to shed light on those who most need our love and support.) We were amazed at the enthusiastic response and decided to keep the project going year-round.

Through the past year we’ve seen friends arrested, convicted, and sentenced – but also some who had charges dropped, won cases and, when very lucky, have been freed. It’s been an incredible journey and we appreciate everyone who has joined us along the way.

We have great plans for expanding our prisoner support efforts in 2014 and we hope everyone reading this will continue to play an active role. In the meantime: the next month is dedicated to #OpValentine! Being a part of #OpValentine is easy. To find a prisoner (or multiple prisoners) to write to, simply take a look at our mailing list

Our 2012 1120 tax form was filed on September 15, 2013. We had an extension within which to file. The following are our sworn figures to the IRS. These figures are taken directly from our 2012 1120, and declared under penalty of perjury as true to the IRS, and if they are incorrect, could incur prosecution: 2012 Gross receipts or sales: $5868.13 This represents all income, from any source, including donations, cds, and income from MyAnonStore.

Compensation of officers or salaries and wages: 00.00. We have never paid any salaries, wages or compensation to any person. No person is compensated for their work with us.

Deductions and expenses: Our deductions and expenses include the following: Wepay fees. bank fees, money transfer fees, and hosting costs. We do not pay taxes on deductions. We keep all receipts to show exactly how much was spent on these fees.

Taxes filed with the IRS 1120 totaled $420.00 thus far in 2012. This figure may increase if we decide we need to pay more tax, or decrease if the IRS determines we have overpaid.

Total Donations made in 2012: $4960.00. We keep full records of every donation made. Each donation can be proved by cancelled check, money order or wire transfer made in the arrested person’s name, or that of their designated representative.

If more supporters mention us publicly, we will publish their names.

As of January 2014, we will be restructuring Freeanons. We will publish more information on this in the coming days.

Tune into Lorax Live this Friday night at 9 p.m. est for one of Lorax’s always fantastic interviews, this time with Adam Nafa. Adam was charged by the United States for posting a video to Youtube, to promote #Operation Telecom, which was a protest against Verizon’s systematic corporate greed, and their efforts to have the FCC’s Net Neutrality Act overturned. Adam was charged for conspiracy to damage a protect computer, 18 U.S.C. 1030 (c)(4)(B) (i) and (ii), an attempt to damage. No attack on Verizon’s systems ever took place.

We consider Adam’s charges to be some of the most significant against Anonymous, under the statute, in the United States to date. His charges reflect an attempt by the United States government to criminalize even the thought of protest. In sum, his charges reflect a DOJ that considers mere presence in an irc channel, or video production, a criminal act.. In that, his case was much like Christopher Weatherhead’s.

Adam’s case did not go trial. Instead, on 5/2/13, Adam pleaded guilty to one count of 18 U.S.C. 1030. It is a travesty that he was obligated to do so in order to avoid the risk of trial and years of prison. Please tune into Lorax at https://radio.anonops.com/ Friday evening, November 29th, to hear his story.

Our intentions have been examined and speculated for as long as we have existed. Ill will has been found in even the best of our intentions and exploited by those whom seek to distract others from our cause. This message is a response to a recent and unfortunate effort to discredit and disrupt our course. What those that orchestrate this campaign fail to realize is that, though they can deter a few from contributing, they can never silence or stop us from continuing our efforts.

We, a few, have bleed and cried to continue this cause and we will not be deterred. We will not be deterred by the prosecution and incarceration of our brothers and sisters. We will not be deterred by the psych ops of the governing fractions and their private contractors. We, least of all, will not be deterred by trolls.

To Nancy Norelli, never once did you have to burden this cause but you took it upon yourself and we will never have the words to thank you for it. To Sue Crabtree, your greatest contribution is that which is most often used to hurt you. They mockingly call you the mother of Anonymous. Sue, Anonymous has known no greater source of comfort than you. You have encouraged us when no one else would. You have taken us in when we had no place else to go. No matter what more you believe that you could have done or what else is left to do, you’ve done good.

They want us to define ourselves? Let me define FreeAnons. We are the Anonymous Solidarity Network and we’ve seen the arrest of dozens of our friends and family. We’ve fallen. We’ve lost sleep. We’ve searched aimlessly for hope. We’ve given up and tried all over again. We’re still here and we’ve been here for more than 2 years and if you want us to justify or define ourselves then you can suck my dick. Signed, with all due respect, The Jolly Anon; Wally Wetcircle. P.S. Please file all complaints with Anonops. I am sure that they will treat your concerns with respect.
