Protesters In France Attack Police Station With Fireworks And Metal Bars

New protests erupted in France over the weekend, and demonstrators seem to be expressing a variety of different frustrations. During protests in the Paris suburb of Champigny on Saturday night, at least 40 demonstrators armed with metal bars and fireworks stormed the local police station.

“Violent attack last night on the police station of Champigny with mortar shots and various projectiles. No police officer was injured,” the Paris police headquarters said on Sunday.

Videos posted from the scene showed a large number of fireworks being shot in the direction of the police station. The protesters attempted to force their way into the police station, but they were unable to get inside.

Police later reported that there were a few smashed windows at the police station and a few damaged cars.

Despite the chaotic scene, no one was arrested. According to Reuters, this is the third attack on the very same police station in the past two years. The station is located near a low-income area that is frequently overpoliced, and the presence of police officers is often unwelcome to the community, who see the police as an occupying force.

Champigny Mayor Laurent Jeanne said the attack may have been triggered after a scooter accident that local residents blamed on the police.

“It was an organised attack of about 40 people who wanted to do battle. For a few days it has been tense with people who have a certain willingness to do battle with the police,” he told BFM TV.

The mayor called the protesters “gang leaders,” and posted in support of the police on Twitter.

On Monday, police across France protested in front of their stations, demanding protection and recognition.

“I hear politicians say that the authority of the state must not be trampled. I totally agree with that. I would like to see actions to prove that this will not happen again,” Grégory Joron, a representative for the Unité SGP Police Force Ouvrière union told Reuters.

Last month, the human rights organization Amnesty International said that authorities in France are taking advantage of newly implemented emergency pandemic laws to arrest thousands of peaceful protesters.

A new report from the organization titled “Arrested for protest: Weaponizing the law to crack down on peaceful protesters in France” documents how a blanket ban on protests following the COVID-19 -lockdown, was disproportionate and resulted in hundreds of unjustified fines. It also finds that long before the pandemic, first aiders, journalists and human rights observers were among those targeted under other vague laws during nationwide protest movements that began in late 2018.

Between November 2018 and July 2019, 11,203 Yellow Vests protesters were placed in pre-charge detention, according to the organization.

These protesters have been arrested and prosecuted for activities that should not constitute a criminal offense. In 2018 and 2019, more than 40,000 people, including protesters, were convicted on the basis of vague laws, including “contempt of public officials”, “participation in a group with a view to committing violent acts” and “organizing a protest without complying with notification requirements.”

France is just one of many countries that is in the midst of coming to terms with the role of police officers in society. All over the world, people who feel persecuted by police are beginning to speak out against the injustice they face on a daily basis, and instead of hearing the complaints and promising change, police are demanding more “respect” authority and submission from populations that are tired of being pushed around.

Anonymous Message To The Remaining Co-Conspirators In Jeffrey Epstein’s Cult

blank

Published

blank

Greetings citizens of the world. This is a message from Anonymous, to the co-conspirators in Jeffrey Epstein’s cult, who are still walking free, in light of the recent arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell, because she is just one of many accomplices in this criminal network.

Jeffrey Epstein became a well-known name around the world last year, after he was arrested on federal charges relating to the trafficking of minors in Florida and New York. However, his criminal activities stretch back decades, and were supported by an entire network of wealthy and well-connected individuals who helped him evade prosecution until his lifestyle became such a public spectacle that the FBI was forced to open up a formal investigation.

In addition to the wealthy co-conspirators, there was also a large staff who helped make his crimes possible. There were recruiters who lured young girls to his mansions, there were workers who cleaned up the room afterwards, and then there were butlers who drove the girls home because they were not old enough to drive themselves. There were pilots, bodyguards, modeling agents, lawyers, politicians, and personal assistants, all getting paid far more than the average going rate for their profession to look the other way.

Some of the people in Epstein’s criminal network turned against him and offered testimony or evidence, but the vast majority of them remained silent, pleading the fifth behind one of Epstein’s expensive lawyers every single time they were brought in for questioning. This culture of silence, along with the many friends that Epstein had in high places, is why he managed to slip under the radar for so long, even though his crimes were well-documented and known by anyone who bothered to take a look.

Abusing children was not some kind of hobby for Epstein and his associates, it was a way of life, which literally took up his entire day as if it was a business that he was operating. In fact, the evidence that has come out in years since indicates that Epstein’s properties acted as a pipeline that funneled young girls from low-income families into elite pedophile rings that served some of the most powerful people in the world, including Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, and Prince Andrew.

Epstein’s familiarity in these circles, along with his sizeable donations to schools like Harvard, and organizations like the Council on Foreign Relations, the media was terrified to bring any attention to his case. In fact, news anchor Amy Robach was caught on a hot mic this year, just after Epstein’s arrest, venting about how she had extensive interviews with Epstein’s accusers years ago, but the network never allowed the interviews to air because they feared repercussions from the royal family.

Epstein’s cult is not an isolated incident, or simply the product of a single disturbed mind, it a part of something much larger that is more ubiquitous among the ruling class than most people realize. The twisted philosophy that Epstein espoused when he was questioned about his lifestyle, exemplifies the “might makes right” attitude that many powerful figures live by. He believed that his wealth and financial success gave him access to people’s bodies, regardless of their age or willingness, and this is a philosophy that is shared by many of his powerful friends.

Most of the people who hold these types of beliefs are smart enough to keep these thoughts to themselves, but they are more honest in private discussions. After Epstein’s arrest last year, world-renowned MIT computer scientist Richard Stallman came under fire after an email was leaked in which he said that Epstein’s victims were “entirely willing” and that it didn’t matter if they were underage. The email was leaked around the same time that the world was learning about the many millions of dollars that Epstein contributed to MIT and other ivy league schools in the US.

This type of activity is nothing new, powerful predators have been using philanthropy and well-respected institutions as a cover for their abusive activity for ages. The Franklin Scandal of the 1980s showed how powerful politicians in the US were using foster schools as grooming grounds for children, who were eventually brought into a trafficking network, where they were shuffled around between parties where they were abused by prominent politicians and then later ignored and discredited by the legal system. This is a global problem that reaches the highest circles of power in many countries. In the United Kingdom, home to Prince Andrew, Jimmy Saville was a beloved radio announcer for decades, until it was revealed after his death that he was involved in a similar abuse scandal, where he procured children through foster schools and children’s charities. Saville had a close relationship with the royal family, and was knighted in 1990.

There are many in the ruling class who believe that they own people, and almost everyone in power acts like they are above the law, so it should come as no surprise that some would take the idea of human ownership to its literal conclusion. This is why trafficking networks of this nature are a permanent fixture in elite circles. Jeffrey Epstein may have been notorious, and his criminal enterprise may have been extensive, but he was just one participant in a much larger operation.

The information that has been revealed to the public about Jeffrey Epstein and his activities so far is only scratching the surface of what was actually going on, and further investigation into his most trusted allies must continue now that he is no longer in the picture. People like Alan Dershowitz, Prince Andrew, Les Wexner, Bill Richardson, Jean-Luc Brunel, Ric Bradshaw, Alexander Acosta, Ron Burkle, Eva Dubin, Glen Dubin, Frederic Fekkai, Tony Figueroa, Clare Hazel, Stephen Kaufman, Sarah Kellen, George Mitchell, David Rogers, Adriana Mucinska, Emmy Taylor, Tom Pritzker, Larry Viskosky, Doug Band, Eric Gany, Todd Meister, Peter Listerman, and others who are not only walking free, but living in luxury.

Many of these names are among the 70 some people who were recently named as being knowledgeable of Epstein’s lifestyle in court documents.

There is also a theory that Epstein faked his death and is still alive, on an island somewhere continuing his lifestyle with millions that were stashed away during his decades-long crime spree. We may never know the truth of these claims, but there are many members of his cult who are still in the public eye, and are still connected with a lengthy paper trail that implicates them in very serious crimes. Some of these people are in hiding, others are publicly disgraced, but still very rich, and some are still able to continue to their lives as if there was no scandal at all. These are the people who this message is for! Slowly but surely, one by one, you are being investigated by independent researchers who are learning more every day, and collecting information that will bring you to justice. You cannot escape us!

Anonymous Message On The Worldwide Fight Against Child Trafficking

blank

Published

blank

Greetings citizens of the world. This is a message from anonymous, regarding the fight against child trafficking worldwide.

In the past few years, the issue of child trafficking has finally started to receive the attention that it deserves, but unfortunately, this problem has also been politicized in a way that makes this issue seem more abstract and far away than it actually is. In many online circles, this discussion has devolved into a guessing game about which celebrity might be an abuser behind closed doors, with speculation being shared as if it is fact.

Indeed, the past few years have shown us that Hollywood is a cesspool of predatory behavior and that the rich and famous can often get away with horrific abuses because they are seemingly above the law. The case of Jeffrey Epstein shows us that there are many world leaders, even princes, who view pedophilia as some sort of hobby. These stories have shocked the collective conscience in a way, and sparked outrage against what many see as an “elite cabal” of abusive pedophiles, but it isn’t that simple. Epstein’s criminal network was certainly an example of an elite pedophile cabal, but his operation was only one small piece of the puzzle, a microcosm of a cultural problem that our species has been ignoring for generations.

Let’s not forget that your child is far more likely to be abused by someone they know, such as a family member or friend, or maybe even a pastor, teacher, or other authority figure. Sadly, the people that we trust with our children, are the most likely to commit abuse, and these types of situations are what represent the overwhelming majority of cases.

The rampant abuse that takes place in the Catholic Church has been public knowledge for a long time, but now as the perpetrators are finally being held accountable in courts outside of the church, we are beginning to learn how deep their criminal activity went. Earlier this year, a former high-ranking Catholic Cardinal was exposed as a pedophile and child trafficker, who pimped out unwilling children to other clergymen from his New Jersey beach house. Former Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington, is said to have managed a “sex cabal” in the 1980s, in which alter boys were groomed to be abused by pedophile priests. He is not alone either, this type of behavior is widespread in any environment where people have enough power to receive protection from the legal system and access to young and vulnerable children.

There are many trusted political institutions that facilitate child trafficking as well, like foster homes and immigration agencies. In 2018, it was revealed that nearly 1,500 immigrant children were lost in government arranged foster homes. Some of the children are still unaccounted for, but those that were found were kept in horrible conditions. In many of these cases, children were sent to homes with pedophiles where they were sexually assaulted, and in other cases, they were held as slaves. Dozens of children from this group, some as young as 14, were sold as slaves to Trillium Farms egg factories in Ohio, where they were subjected to constant abuse and forced to work with no pay.

Child charities should also not be ignored in the fight against child trafficking, as many of these organizations are highly suspect, and have already been exposed for their corruption. Last year, Peter John Dalglish, former United Nations adviser and founder of the Street Kids International charity, was sentenced to 9 years in prison for abusing children. Two young children, ages 12 and 14, were “rescued” from the home in Nepal where he was staying at the time of his arrest. The United Nations, in general, has a very bad track record with keeping children safe in their overseas missions, and at times it seems that their mission is actually to abuse and terrorize these children.

A report from the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS), indicated that “peacekeepers” working in Haiti were guilty of raping Haitian women at an alarming rate. The report also indicated that a large number of the victims were underage.

According to the report, there were 231 people in Haiti who claimed they were sexually violated by UN peacekeepers, and were forced to perform sexual acts in exchange for food and supplies that were intended as relief packages. Last year, the New York Times reported that UN forces have “fathered” hundreds of children in Haiti, and many of the mothers were extremely young and left to fend for themselves.

Former United Nations official Andrew MacLeod has estimated that the organization has employed at least 3,300 pedophiles that they know of, and suggested that at least 60,000 cases of sexual assault have been perpetrated by staff members of the United Nations over the past decade.

“There are tens of thousands of aid workers around the world with pedophile tendencies, but if you wear a Unicef T-shirt nobody will ask what you’re up to,” he said.

Some of the world’s largest multinational corporations such as DynCorp and Halliburton were exposed as major players in the global human trafficking market. These companies did not work alone, but cooperated with each other through various subsidiaries and had the luxury of government protection.

When suspicion was brought upon these companies it was swept under the rug by government officials. Even high-ranking members of the establishment such as Donald Rumsfeld were implicit in covering up this scandal. On March 11th, 2005, he was questioned by Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and he admitted on the record that the allegations did have credibility, but he pushed the blame off onto a few “rogue” employees.

If the goal is to end child trafficking, then we need to look deeper than a few celebrities or politicians that we have disagreements with. We need to look at many of the institutions that we put our faith and trust in, and even the family members, friends, and community leaders that we look up to. Anonymous is searching everywhere for these predators, whether they are Hollywood, the halls of Congress, or your neighborhood.

Anonymous Million Mask March 2020

Published

Anonymous

Anonymous is readying for its coveted Million Mask March, each year Anons with all sorts of differing views, ideas, and goals come together united in unity to march in the street to peacefully show resistance and the governments of the world our presence.

The fifth of November like Christmas only happens once a year. The date is quickly approaching for activists and hacktivists who associate themselves with the decentralized leaderless Anonymous collective. Anons are beginning to organize together for rallies across the world. So grab a sign, print out your paper Guy Fawkes mask, (provided for convenience in this article), and get ready to remember the fifth of November.

This year activists from all over the world plan to partake in the march highlighting human rights abuses, the rise of the surveillance state, the dangers of losing our internet, and the combined loss of our ever-decreasing freedom of speech and press.

November 5th is also seen as a day to remember those within the collective who have been incarcerated and charged with the “Computer Fraud and Abuse Act” for their actions like Jeremy Hammond, or passed on like Aaron Swartz or the brother Tayyeb Shehadah, who was shot for protesting in Palestine by an Israeli sniper (mask seen below).

Anonymous is also planning to highlight the rise of internet legislation that seeks to use copyright as a means to censor independent, creative, and dissenting voices online. It’s an effort that activists from Anonymous Bites Back (ABB) have been spearheading the fight for, since last year against the likes of ACTA2, a copyright directive in Europe and U.S. net neutrality.

Although it’s worth noting that there are no specific goals for the march or collective, there is, however, an overarching desire within shared by many to combat censorship, promote freedom of speech, and counter government control within the collective. Anti-oppression and supporting whistleblowers seems to be something most can also agree on.

Anonymous actions have been taken against Sony, HB Gary, Aaron Barr, Operation Payback, and protests against organizations like Westboro Baptist, Church Of Scientology, and various governments worldwide including Iran, Egypt, Australia, and Ireland to name a few of those targeted in early Ops.

The collective utilizes a number of techniques such as digital web sit-ins (DoS attacks) with LOIC (sending HTTP header requests to sites), “rudimentary exploits”, d0xing and sometimes the more extreme hacking of a database and leaking of its tables and contents for the Lulz.

After all the ghouls and witches are away for Halloween (October 31st), millions of Anons around the world will meet on November 5th, drawn to Guy Fawkes, revolution, change, and the gunpowder plot, to make their presence known to world governments so they shall never be forgot.

Those who support the Anonymous idea, Discordianism, anarchy, fighting against government oppression, encryption, hacking, human rights, various activist causes for our animal friends and otherwise, justice and even those who just enjoy the Lulz of a website or database getting pwned by code, will all join together for a single day showcasing global unity, against the elite (the true vampires and goblins of our society.)

In other words, individuals of every race, ideological beliefs and social class will meet in streets all over the world to celebrate November 5th and the gunpowder plot which will never be forgotten, mirroring the movie V for Vendetta as a symbol for standing against tyranny.

It is a day that historically has been marked with Anons protesting in the streets since 2011. All in an effort to remind the elite and other interests that “we are still here, we will remain a pain in your ass, and we aren’t going away.” As well as to ask a simple question to governments across the globe: “do you liek mudkipz and lulzboats?”

To paraphrase: “We are legion, we are many, we are the resistance against corrupt governments, and the corruption of this world. You are the disease and we are the antidote.”

Since 2011 after the rise of the Occupy Wall Street, meeting on November 5th has become a tradition for those who have chosen to be apart of the Anon collective idea.

For governments, November 5th and the headless symbol of Anonymous is seen as a form of resistance and dissent throughout the world. Earth’s citizens unite and protest elitist policies, corruption, and in some countries even oppression all in solidarity with each other (brothers and sisters) wearing Guy Fawkes masks to obscure identities and represent unity.

Historically, the feds have tried to discover what they deemed Anonymous’s “shadowy leadership” by spying on Anons at the march with Stingrays, drones and digital monitoring technology to tap conversations, albeit failing to realize its decentralized nature.

In the U.S. the DHS even recently used a modified version of the Anonymous “man without a head” logo in a presentation on surveillance. Ironically, the modified logo was copyrighted and was originally created for an article critical of Pakistan’s mass surveillance, Muckrock reported.

There are no leaders in Anonymous like the feds think; everyone networks and works together for common like-minded causes, be it hunting pedophiles, animal abusers, domestic terrorists or uniting together to stop laws against the Internet like ACTA, ACTA 2, SOPA, PIPA, CISPA and the cleverly named never forgotten CISPA 2.0, or numerous anti-war actions just to name a few of the collective’s operations over the years.

In 2011 the feds seemed to partially figure things out, noting in a DHS bulletin that Anonymous lacked “a centralized leadership structure and distributed (often international) personnel poses a significant hurdle for law enforcement organizations hoping to curb the flow of cyber attacks against organizations.”

Meanwhile, for those who support the idea of Anonymous decentralization, government transparency, and freedom for everyone, the march is seen as a day to meet, trek, network and form ideas with like minds, leaving behind hacktivist deeds that individuals of the collective might (or might not) have taken part in. (You do not talk about fight club; rule 9001 of the Internet – everyone is a fed, don’t brag.)

You don’t have to be a hacker to be Anonymous, Anons have a number of other skills used to support operations within the decentralized leaderless collective such as artwork, video editing, writing PRs, aiding whistleblowers and boots on the ground, the list goes on and on.

Anyone can be Anonymous. Full stop, no one tells someone they can’t be, it’s an idea and tactic not so much a group. Which, the media seems to confuse the concept a lot when discussing the collective.

Over the years, Guy Fawkes masks have even been outlawed at protests in some countries like BahrainDubaiSaudi ArabiaUnited Arab Emirates and Canada to name just a few. In fact, even in the U.S. a Kentucky lawmaker recently filed a bill to ban masks at protests in the state in 2017.

Year after year the Million Mask March has been a historical event.

But as Anonymous Bites back (ABB) notes, “this year it will not be just Anonymous marching, others will stand with us, together, unleashing a peaceful but powerful scream for freedom.”

Anonymous Bites Back as a media team will be present at many marches around the world, and the group of volunteer activists promises they will attempt to stream most of the events live. If you want to broadcast and need help, feel free to contact @YourMarkLubbers on Twitter, Facebook Million Mask March World Wide, and AnonymousWorldWide on Youtube.

Want to meet others and perhaps travel together? Many organizers and participants assemble on social media, others are joining a chat server on Discord: Click Here.

This Discord server also has a lot of promo material in it, including free printable masks. Do you just want to march and not join any server or social media, printable masks and flyers are also available here: Click Here

However, Anonymous warns of the spread of fake march locations that can either be set up as honeypots or just a waste of your time. One such site which will not be linked to prevent improving its SEO, that should be avoided for information on the marches is actually titled: “millionmaskmarch.com.” The website among a host of other websites is run by a suspected FBI informant who is only known as General Christine Anne Sands, an obvious alias for the fraud despised by the Anonymous collective.

Although, Anonymous states that this year Sand’s website can expect the collective and “will be a heavy target leading up to the marches so that newbies don’t use her map to find a march location.”

The collective also warns:

Even though the Million Mask March is a fully legal and peaceful event, remember to stay safe. Keep your masks on and do not share any private information about yourself with anyone. Online and offline. Sail safe.

It’s also not out of the question to see data drops from hacktivists within the collective to celebrate the occasion and in the past this has almost always been a given.

Participants in the march are reminded that peaceful protest is encouraged and violence is discouraged, the collective will not support your individual actions in its name.

If individuals choose to be violent they do so on their own accord and fully understand the consequences that may ensue for others participating in the Million Mask March in their area, which will likely include tear gas and brutal response from riot cops. Be respectful of your fellow marchers this is not a time to riot, but a time to celebrate and show presence.

If you are interested in attending and showing your government a civil presence you can find your closest Million Mask March location on Pastebin, by searching Twitter or Fedbook (Facebook) with the terms “million mask march [your city]” or visiting the Million Mask March Locations website (here), which is operated by those in the collective organizing the marches, constantly being updated with more cities global.

Since there are no official accounts that represent the whole idea of Anonymous, the march is expected to be vast and wide across the world and this list should be assumed to be incomplete. We are legion, we are anonymous we do not forgive, we do not forget expect us on your streets!
