ANONYMOUS Issues Threat - On October 10 The NYSE Will Be Erased From The Internet - Operation #InvadeWallStreet
UPDATE - ANONYMOUS has just released a statement saying that this video is a hoax.
UPDATE #2 - What is interesting is that we don't know with certainty that it was a hoax.
Read this story we found linked on an ANONYMOUS news board:
The problem with determining the veracity of such claims rests in the very nature of Anonymous. Anonymous is not a traditional organization. It is instead a loose confederation of like minded individuals. Free of hierarchical structure, the online pool of consciousness known as Anonymous is everyone and no one - a postmodern Robin Hood, in it for the "lulz." - the aggregate visage of a memetic virus.
The operation may or may not be legitimate, may or may not be a false flag operation initiated by authorities in order to discredit Anonymous and Occupy Wall Street.
So I'm not sure this issue is completely settled. It might be that some within Anonymous want to attack the NYSE, while others do not. I guess we will have to wait until next week to find out the truth.
A new Anonymous statement to the media regarding a DDOS attack set for October 10th.
Greetings, Institutions of the Media.
We are Anonymous.
The events transpiring within Wall Street have caught our eye.
It seems that the government and Federal agencies enjoy enforcing the law a little bit too much. They instate unjust laws as mindless automatons, blindly following orders with soulless precision.
We witness the Government enforcing the laws that punish the 99% while allowing the 1% to escape justice, unharmed, for their crimes against the people.
We have observed this same Government failing to enforce even the minimal legal restraints of Wall Street's abuses. This Government who has willingly ignored the greed at Wall Street has even bailed out the perpetrators that have caused our crisis.
We will not stand by and watch the system take over our way of life.
We the people shall stand against the government's inaction.
We the people will not be witnesses to your corruption and ill gotten profits.
We will not labor for your leisure.
We will not assist you in any way.
This is why we choose to declare our war against the New York Stock Exchange. We can no longer stay silent as the population is being exploited and forced to make sacrifices in the name of profit.
We will show the world that we are true to our word. On October 10th, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet. On October 10th, expect a day that will never, ever, be forgotten.
Vox Populi, Vox Anon.
The Voice of The People is The Voice of Anonymous.
We are Legion. We are the 99%.
We do not forgive. We do not forget.
Wall Street: Expect us.
