De-Manufacturing Consent: “The Hacker Wars”.

Guillermo Jimenez (Boiling Frogs Post) is joined by Vivien Lesnik Weisman:
We discuss Vivien’s upcoming film The Hacker Wars (previously titled The Reality Wars), including the individual cases of Andrew “Weev” Auernheimer, Barrett Brown, and the recently sentenced Jeremy Hammond.

Write letter to support Arrested Anons #FreeAnons

Some of our bravest heroes and activists are now in jail and they need your help. Just for a moment, close your eyes and think about going to jail for years. Being isolated from your family, friends, lover and supporters. Imagine in this loneliness how valuable receiving a letter with loving words, a drawing from an admiring child, photos from hot loving chicks or news from supporters can be.
