re: julian assange released Report from the frontlines: Anonymous showed up at Westminster Magistrates court from 12:30 today to join the Wikileaks demo. About 5 anons were there masked, with a few others going "non-anon" as it were. As usual, the EFG mask acted like a magnet for the press, lots of photo ops and a few questions about the DDOS and net activism (we used this opportunity to plug Operation Leakspin as much as possible, to try and show that Anon isn't just bored script kiddies). All of a sudden, who do we spot but the man, the legend himself, John "Doesn't afraid of anything" Sweeney! Of course, we went batshit trying to get his attention, and he and his cameraman came over to speak to us for Panorama! We made a point of thanking him profusely for his work on exposing the cult, and lovely man that he is, he posed for the photo above with us. He seemed rather amused by the whole thing, I think he knows that he's a bit of a hero round these parts. Anyway, Anon represented throughout the afternoon before eventualy buggering off when it became apparent that Assange wasn't going to be released today. Fun times had by all (and it has to be said, the cops did an excellent job as well, they were friendly, helpful and protected us from the busy traffic).
