Anonymous press release on Libya: 21st Feb 2011

Dear United Nations:

Anonymous wishes you to act.

We are watching the developments in Libya and are shocked.
Shocked by the images we’ve seen.
Shocked by the things Libya’s Anons have told us.
Shocked by the fact that one man ignores the voices of his citizens and opens fire on them.
Shocked by the fact that even with generals and diplomats deserting, this man is still ignoring the will of his people and unwilling to accept their human rights

Julian Assange solidarity vigil - British Consul Brisbane 7th Feb 2011

Yesterday afternoon a handful of people held a vigil at he British consulate in Brisbane to mark the attempted extradition of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. We held signs reading, "Free Julian Assange, Free Bradley Manning" and "In An Age of Universal Deceit Telling The Truth is a Revolutionary Act"

It was a bit of a disappointing turnout, but the vigil was not advertised other than by our email network. However the police must have been taking lessons form Wikileaks, because they knew all about it, and well outnumbered us!
