Anonymous Speaks Again

New message from Anonymous has appeared on YouTube. They are taking the human rights angle and running with it, and good for them:

Text for in case of baleetion follows.

"It has come to the attention of Anonymous that there are a number of you out there who do not clearly understand what we are or why we have undertaken our present course of action.

Contrary to the assumptions of the media, Anonymous is not "a group of super hackers". Anonymous is a collective of individuals united by an awareness that someone must do the right thing, that someone must bring light to the darkness, that someone must open the eyes of a public that has slumbered for far too long.

Among our numbers you will find individuals from all walks of life - lawyers, parents, IT professionals, members of law enforcement, college students, veterinary technicians and more. Anonymous is everyone and everywhere. We have no leaders, no single entity directing us - only the collective outrage of individuals, guiding our hand in the current efforts to bring awareness.

We want you to be aware of the very real dangers of Scientology. We want you to know about the gross human rights violations committed by this cult. We want you to know about Lisa McPhearson. We want you to know about former members of Scientology's private navy, SeaOrg, who were forced to have abortions so that they could continue in service to the church.

We want you to know about Scientology's use of child labor and their gulags. We want you to know about Operation Freakout and Paulette Cooper. We want you to know about Operation Snow White and Scientology's efforts to infiltrate the government of the United States of America.We want you to know about all of these things that have been swept under the rug for far too long.

The information is out there. It is yours for the taking. Arm yourself with knowledge. Be very wary of the 10th of February. Anonymous invites you to join us in an act of solidarity. Anonymous invites you to take up the banner of free speech, of human rights, of family and freedom.

Join us in protest outside of Scientology centers world wide. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. We will be heard. Expect us."

Also, apparently Digg.com has been blocking Scientology articles from appearing on the front page. I don't want to be paranoid, but I get the distinct impression that L. Ron Vader just Force-choked a bitch. Say it ain't so, Digg! It looks like they have relented.

Edit: YouTube is reportedly blocking the first Message video from reaching its own front page. Paranoia is looking more and more like the sane option.

Edit edit: Some dudes in Orlando did a roadside leaflet handout and protest in front of a CoS church, with amusing feedback from traffic. Several participants were reportedly tailed as they left the scene and got it all on video with plans to upload later. If true, this story bears watching.
