Proud of what Anonymous is doing in America? Here is how you can join the Anonymous hacktivist group
In the past week, the phoenix called Anonymous has risen from the ashes. In a spate of protest hack attacks, the Anonymous hacking group took down the Minneapolis Police Department website and also defaced the United Nations in protest against the custodial killing of African American, George Floyd by Derek Chauvin.
Since then we are getting a lot of queries about who the Anonymous hacking group was and how to join them. ‘Anonymous’ hackers without faces or identities have been at the forefront of the online revolution since 2003 when the idea of the protest hacker group was born on the image boarding website, 4Chan. The founders of Anonymous hackers collective decided to fight against all the evils that happen on the Internet.
Anonymous is a scattered collective and hence has no central leadership. In fact, there is no hierarchy in the group. Wikipedia describes Anonymous as “an Internet gathering” with “a very loose and decentralized command structure that operates on ideas rather than directives”.
Anonymous are represented by men and women wearing the esoteric Guy Fawkes mask. After any hacking or DDoS attack, a Guy Fawkes donning Anonymous member posts a video explaining why the site was hacked or DDoSed.
The Guy Fawkes mask has become a cult icon among protesters world over protesting against governments, corporates, and malicious entities who look to take advantage of fellow humans. The Anonymous have risen their banner against net neutrality, pedophilia, Ferguson killings, whaling, big game hunting, terrorist attacks, and now George Floyd’s custodial murder.
