In another guest post reposted from FreeAnons, the FreeAnons organization would like to encourage you to take a moment and a spare holiday card and write to an incarcerated Anon. Some hacktivists spend years in pre-trial custody, often in solitary confinement, and a card from someone on the outside means more than we out here can ever imagine. You’ve got leftover cards, I know you do. This is what you were meant to do with them. Pick one to write to, or “collect the whole set.” We’re also updating our previous list of incarcerated or paroled Anons as we get more information, so check back. Here’s hoping we soon run out of names to add.
Freeanons Letter Writing Campaign to incarcerated Anons and Whistleblowers
Jeremy Hammond, Matt Dehart, Barrett Brown, Aken, Otherwise, Timothy Justin French, Adam Bennett, Absantos, Jon Cowden, Jeffrey Sterling and our 3 arrested anons in France: These folks are either in prison, heading to prison or on house arrest which may appear better than prison but not by much when you are forced into isolation by the courts and not permitted any interaction with even a friend or someone outside of the home.
Prisoners feel especially isolated during the holiday season when families visit and cards are received. We do not intend to allow that to happen to our Anons and we are in need of help from each of you to make this a better holiday season for our Anons. We will not forget them and we will fight for them until all are free from persecution. While we cannot send cards to the ones who are not in prison, we can send them love via twitter or other means. We would ask each of you to think of our jailed Anons while you write your holiday cards and letters and grab a card or write an extra letter this year. If you put up a Christmas tree, perhaps you can add an ornament for them and tell them about it in a card or letter. Below you will find the names and addresses to make this process an easy one. In order to ensure that each card is received, a return address (any return address) should be placed on the envelope. Please don’t let these brave men feel any more alone than they already do. They have sacrificed their freedoms. Won’t you please give them a little of your time? They are our responsibility until they are returned home to the ones that love them. We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season, no matter what holiday you celebrate. PLEASE NOTE: No glitter, nudes or perfume on your cards and letters or they will not be delivered. With love to all from Freeanons.
