Anonymous Spain has posted the following message after yesterday’s announcement by Spanish police informing of the arrest of 3 Anonymous hackers. The official press release remarked they had arrested the leaders of said group in Spain. Yes.
This is an Anonymous message from the Spanish revolution to politicians, dictators and plutocrats all over the planet: Surprised by global disobedience? Let us explain your delicate situation.
Thousands of years ago, human beings started to evolve. Since then, our species has walked a dark bloody road that condemned people to live in fear caused by ignorance. Knowledge, ethical and technological development have always been conditioned by elites and their wars -which, as in an Orwellian metaphor, haven’t done anything but perpetuate vertical and obscurantist social schemes. We have arrived to the 21st century of our era, after two World Wars, taking on our backs the possibility of nuclear conflicts with assured mutual destruction. Announced the “end of history” by your economists and intellectuals, it seemed that the possibility of looking for a fairer order was meaningless. Thinking that you had stopped enough our rational development, you let us raise a progress model whose objective was never more than make you even richer and more powerful.
However, you didn’t consider that the real human spirit refuses to bow, always. While you believed you would conquer us definitely using economic crises, our species has evolved again. Using only the power of culture and freedom, we have reused those technological resources that were born of our genius and that you only provided us with consumerist intentions. So we have updated, improved and immunized our strength, operations and effectiveness. We absorb your own tactics, techniques and imaginary to form our own mediums, dreams and challenges.
Today, the pacific revolution extends around the planet as a challenge to your oppression and your attempt to shut our freedom of expression. Finally, information has reached the critical mass, exploding in a lot of voices whose new wishes and needs can’t be covered by your old paradigm. Now, physically and digitally interconnected, we form a huge collective conscience. Maybe your corporate media silence what’s happening, but you can’t fool us anymore. You can stop temporarily some nodes but the process will continue unstoppable and transforming. Now, it doesn’t matter what measures you take trying to counteract: the more violence, censorship and obstacles you put in our road, the more you expose your weakness. In every place on Earth, with different ideas and from different conditions, have always existed, exist now and will exist in the future, women and men that oppose those which are not really democratic and fair governments. After millennia of suffering, our species has stood up and nothing will ever be the same. Your totalitarian game is ending. But the story, friends, hasn’t ended yet: it begins now. Here, in Spain, we’ll take the streets and we’ll march wherever it is necessary. Remember, change is happening, with or without you. People shouldn’t fear governments. Governments should fear people. We are the people. We are the only system. We are Anonymous. We are legion. We do not forget. We do not forgive. Expect us.
