Occupy Wall Street The joyous freedom of possibility. Dissent can be personal, collective, creative — whatever you want it to be. Revolt can be physical or spectral, a blackspot on a corporate logo or a digital mindbomb posted online. Edit a billboard, speak to a friend. There are no limits, no minimum or maximum. The revolutionary spark is the same one that lit human existence. Anonymous declares ‘cyberwar’ on the IMF The vigilante hacktivists of Anonymous have announced an online attack on the IMF for its treatment of the Greek people. The struggle of the of the Greek people against the IMF has taken a new turn recently, as Anonymous declared its intention to launch a series of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks on the Fund in retaliation for the IMF’s treatment of the Greek people. Ever since the Greek crisis began, the EU and IMF have together forced Greece to accept draconian austerity measures and a fire-sale of state assets to enable it to continue servicing its major debts to large European banks like Kommerzbank and Société Générale, which greedily brought up Greek bonds in the lead-up to the crisis.

Best Hacks by the Hacktivist Group 'Anonymous' Natalie Wolchover, Life's Little Mysteries Staff Writer | November 11, 2011 10:33am ET Credit: Creative Commons | Vincent Diamante "Hacktivism" is a modern form of protest in which savvy programmers use their hacking skills to fight back against social and political injustice. Though nonviolent, most acts of hacktivism are illegal, or at least legally ambiguous, leading most perpetrators to act anonymously. Nonetheless, in a day and age when many people feel that justice is not guaranteed by the laws of the land, some view these hacktivists as heroic vigilantes who use their tech wizardry to defend the public good.
Hacker Group Takes On Fed, IMF, "Global Banking Cartel" A group of decentralized hacker activists — or “hacktivists” — known as Anonymous announced a new plan on March 14 to take on the Federal Reserve System, the International Monetary Fund, the Bank for International Settlements, the World Bank, and the entire “global banking cartel.” In a video posted on YouTube (watch below), the group said “Operation Empire State Rebellion,” as the effort is being called, would entail “a relentless campaign of nonviolent, peaceful civil disobedience” until the group’s demands are met and “a rule of law is restored.” And it has already announced several demands which U.S. and international authorities will almost certainly not comply with, even despite the group’s past successes in punishing and humiliating prominent institutions and powerful dictatorships. To start with, as a “sign of good faith,” the group demanded that Federal Reserve boss Ben Bernanke step down from his position.

Food prices 'will double by 2030', Oxfam warns 31 May 2011Last updated at 11:07 The price of key crops could rise by up to 180%, Oxfam says Rising food prices are tightening the squeeze on populations already struggling to buy adequate food, demanding radical reform of the global food system, Oxfam has warned. By 2030, the average cost of key crops could increase by between 120% and 180%, the charity forecasts. It is the acceleration of a trend which has already seen food prices double in the last 20 years. Half of the rise to come will be caused by climate change, Oxfam predicts.
The call to occupy Wall Street resonates around the world People protest during the 'Occupy Wall Street' rally at Bowling Green Plaza on 17 September. Photograph: Steven Greaves/Demotix/Corbis On Saturday 17 September, many of us watched in awe as 5,000 Americans descended on to the financial district of lower Manhattan, waved signs, unfurled banners, beat drums, chanted slogans and proceeded to walk towards the "financial Gomorrah" of the nation. They vowed to "occupy Wall Street" and to "bring justice to the bankers", but the New York police thwarted their efforts temporarily, locking down the symbolic street with barricades and checkpoints. Are We Witnessing the Start of a Global Revolution? For the first time in human history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive… The resulting global political activism is generating a surge in the quest for personal dignity, cultural respect and economic opportunity in a world painfully scarred by memories of centuries-long alien colonial or imperial domination… The worldwide yearning for human dignity is the central challenge inherent in the phenomenon of global political awakening… That awakening is socially massive and politically radicalizing… The nearly universal access to radio, television and increasingly the Internet is creating a community of shared perceptions and envy that can be galvanized and channeled by demagogic political or religious passions. These energies transcend sovereign borders and pose a challenge both to existing states as well as to the existing global hierarchy, on top of which America still perches… - Zbigniew Brzezinski Former U.S.
