Anonymous weighs in on the Libyan crisis

Seems you can’t have a crisis these days without those folks from Anonymous, the same crew who brought misery to corporations that cut off funding channels to WikiLeaks and exposed a corporate spying effort to identify their own members.

Here’s their pronouncement:

Free Citizens of the World:

For a long time the people of Libya have suffered under  the madness of their ruler, Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi, and his government. For too long, the people of Libya have suffered in silence. In the recent Tunisian and Egyptian uprisings, fear has vanished from Arabs all over the region. It is time to be silent no more.

Despite the efforts of the regime to send in mercenaries, cut off land communications, and ban their populations from getting the truth, the people of Libya have stood up to claim what is their human birthright: Freedom.

Anonymous is willing to bring its help to the brave people of Libya. Anonymous declares by this statement its engagement with them in the common goal. We, the people, will not remain silent while dictators fire upon their citizens. We, the people, will not remain inactive while the powerful crush peaceful claims with violence.

The time of dictatorship regimes is over. The time of oppression has come to an end. We, the people, will walk fearless towards the global goal. Anonymous sends this message to the Libyan people: You are not alone. The world is once again watching.  Your brothers and sisters are watching. Anonymous extends its arms to you in solidarity at your time of struggle.  Together, we will achieve what you are fighting for and Mankind will be free at last.

We are Anonymous.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Expect us.

And it’s not just Gaddafi they’re serving notice on. Here’s their warning to Fred Phelps, the foul-mouth pastor of the Westboro Baptist Church.
