United by one, Divided by zero
We are not hackers. We are not terrorists. We are not violent.
Anonymous is an idea that all of us deserve freedom. freedom of thought, freedom of speech, of expression, knowledge, and belief, the freedom to determine our own course and destination.
We, as citizens of the world, bear witness to tyranny, oppression and censorship. We, as activists, seek to change the system and end corruption. We seek transparency. We resist those who violate our rights.
United as one, Divided by zero.
We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.
The Fifth of November
Remember, Remember the Fifth of November, The Gunpowder Treason and Plot, I know of no reason Why the Gunpowder Treason Should ever be forgot
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t’was his intent To blow up the King and Parli’ment Three-score barrels of powder below To prove old England’s overthrow; By God’s providence he was catch’d With a dark lantern and burning match
Holla boys, Holla boys, let the bells ring Holla boys, Holla boys, God save the King!
And what should we do with him? Burn him!
Remember, Remember the Fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot I see no reason, why gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot
A stick or a stake for King James’ sake Will you please to give us a fagot If you can’t give us one, we’ll take two; The better for us and the worse for you!
A penny loaf to feed the Pope! A farthing o’ cheese to choke him! A pint of beer to rinse it down! A fagot of sticks to burn him!
Burn him in a tub of tar! Burn him like a blazing star! Burn his body from his head! Then we’ll say ol’ Pope is dead!
Hip hip hoorah!
