As the race war and police brutality continued to grow across the USA, every day more innocent and unarmed Black people were being murdered by armed White Cops. This war came to a head on August 9, 2014, when Michael Brown Jr., an 18-year-old African American, was fatally shot by 28-year-old white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. During this time, a peaceful protest movement had begun to spread like wildfire across the USA called “Hands Up Don’t Shoot”. Anonymous was a large part of this movement.
Anonymous Operation Ferguson – Press Release
Sunday – August 10, 2014 1:30 PM CST USA
A little over 24 hours ago in Ferguson, Missouri – USA the Ferguson Police Department shot an un-armed teen 6 times and killed him. His body was left to lie in a pool of blood in the sweltering heat for hours while the police militarized the area against protesters and attempted to concoct a reasonable story as to why they snatched this innocent students life for no reason. The St. Louis County Sheriff Department even sealed the roads leading to Ferguson in a vain attempt to prevent protesters from reaching the city. His name was Mike Brown, he was 17 – and he would have started college next week. Instead, his family is struggling to come up with funeral costs.
The entire global collective of Anonymous is outraged at this cold blooded murder of a young teen. Not a week goes by that some young person, usually of minority ethnicity – is slaughtered by murderous police in the USA. For this reason Anonymous will not be satisfied this time, as we have in the past – with simply obtaining justice for this young man and his family. Anonymous demands that the Congressional Representatives and Senators from Missouri introduce legislation entitled “Mike Brown’s Law” that will set strict national standards for police conduct in the USA. We further demand that this new law include specific language to grant the victims of police violence the same rights and prerogatives that are already enjoyed nationwide by the victims of other violent criminals. The Equal Protection clause of the US Constitution demands nothing less.
To the good people of Ferguson, take heart – and take your streets. You are not alone, we will support you in every way possible. Occupy every square inch of your city. Open your homes and help in any way you can the protesters who will come to your city from every part of Missouri and the USA. Businesses and householders that are near protest rallies, open your WiFi routers so that live streamers and other independent journalists can use the Internet connections. Feed each other, keep each other safe – and stay in the streets until we are totally victorious in all our demands.
To the Ferguson Police Department and any other jurisdictions who are deployed to the protests: we are watching you very closely. If you abuse, harass – or harm in any way the protesters in Ferguson we will take every web based asset of your departments and governments off line. That is not a threat, it is a promise. If you attack the protesters, we will attack every server and computer you have. We will dox and release the personal information on every single member of the Ferguson Police Department, as well as any other jurisdiction that participates in the abuse. We will seize all your databases and E-Mail spools and dump them on the Internet. This is your only warning.
The time has come for more than simple justice for these atrocities. The time has come to draw a line in the sand and say “no more dead kids”, no more police killings and beatings. Anonymous is drawing a line in the sand, and that line runs right down the middle of Main Street Ferguson, Missouri. Police impunity ends with the barbaric death of Mike Brown.

EXPECT JUSTICE – DEMAND CHANGE
Good people of Ferguson. Anonymous has seen your distress and has called on it’s rowdy legions for support. For those of
you unfamiliar with how Anonymous works, just be aware that drama, confusion, widely variant opinions, hilarity, trickery, arrests, brilliant success and equally epic fails are part of the package.
FIRST, PLEASE NOTE: There appears to be a fake website set up to gather your information -called a “honeypot”- to identify the information (location and more) of those who browse there: www.opferguson.com <– DO NOT GO HERE.
SECONDLY, you may notice contradictory tweets and information about #Ferguson and #OpFerguson from various Anonymous twitter accounts.
Part of why there is dissension about this particular #op is that CommanderX is considered a “namefag/facefag” -a known entity who enjoys or at least doesn’t shun publicity- which is considered by most Anonymous to be bad form, for some probably fairly obvious reasons. The other big reason is that anything involving cops on one hand and new people unfamiliar with offensive tech on the other, spells “arrests” which we refer to as “v&” or “getting vanned” i.e. surveillance/arrests.
*** The actual Anonymous #OpFerguson appears to be using the twitter account @OpFerguson. The website is www.opferguson.cf NOT .com!! The .com one is the honeypot.
1. IF YOU ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING ILLEGAL ONLINE YOU WILL VERY LIKELY NOT BE ARRESTED FOR VISITING A WEBSITE OR AN IRC CHANNEL. JUST USE SOME F*ING COMMON SENSE. What you say there can be attributed to you unless you properly anonymize your connection.
2. ANYONE can be Anonymous, even government agents. There is no verification process.
3. Anyone can DDos (LOIC and lots of other tools, #stfw for info if desired – if you participate without knowing what you are doing, you can be indentified and arrested. Hacking is a lot more work than DDos’ing. Take your time, don’t take shortcuts or you will probably get arrested and your have life highly disrupted. Again #stfw for info, knowledge is power. THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR COMPETENCE.
4. SECURITY CULTURE SECURITY CULTURE SECURITY CULTURE. When you stand out in any way – like becoming an activist – it is very likely that someone actually is, or soon will be, out to get you. Save this very excellent instruction on how to conduct yourself as a h/activist. Re-read it regularly.
*** The central principle of all security culture, the point that cannot be emphasized enough, is that people should NEVEr be privy to any sensitive information they do not need to know. SO DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL***
In the eyes of the State <insert whichever>, we are all anonymous, faceless, voiceless. They fear us only when we are united.
We are Anonymous
We are Legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Anonymous went on to expose that Darren Wilson was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, a white supremist, militant cult. This knowledge led to further research into past and current cop murders, only to uncover nation-wide corruption and KKK control of the Police. The continuous and devastating attacks carried out by Anonymous over the following months led to a government militarized infiltration of the Hands Up Don’t Shoot movement, turning it into violent rioters who destroyed buildings, businesses and towns. This goes against everything Anonymous stands for. Anonymous is against all violence. The movement was renamed Black Lives Matter and is funded by George Soros.
