What is Anonymous Australia?
Anonymous Australia is a network of activists, hackers, environmentalists and whistle blowers and others from all walks of life, who choose to identify themselves as ‘Anons’. Over the years Anonymous Australia has grown into, and become more organised as a movement of truth and social justice. Anonymous has no strictly defined philosophy and internal debate is a regular feature of the online community. The vast majority of the network have always tried to promote the importance of internet freedom, freedom of association, human rights, independence and social justice. Anonymous Australia is a direct decedent from the international Anonymous network, which also has its roots in the occupy movement and online social forums, however the dynamics of the Anonymous network in Australia has shifted, more so into social activism and other human rights concerns related to politics and environmental protection.
There are no leaders or any memberships, you become a part when you actually get involved. There is no religious bias, political bias, corporate sponsorship or any form of censorship. The importance of free speech and freedom of thought is something that runs deeply within the core values of Anonymous. Any costs associated with projects or events are always raised internally, transparently and honestly. Anonymous Australia do what they do because they can, not because of any financial motivation. The importance of community development and the right to self determination is also one of the motivations behind the Anonymous community. There have been times where Anonymous have been met with bad press, internal conflicts and even infiltration. Always be careful who you trust, as not everyone who claims to be an Anon share the core values. If you have no other motivation for being here than the benefit of mankind, then you are in the right place!
“Anyone can be Anonymous, but not everyone is an Anon”
