Communiqué From Anonymous to the British people

Just got sent this, make for it what you will, it was sent by anon.

We are anonymous.

And so are you.
This is a call to all political activists and all people in the United Kingdom to join our fight against the UK
establishment. We are aware that the government is increasingly indifferent to traditional forms of protest
even when organised on large scale. Any effective means that the people may have to fight for their own
well-being is being eroded by oppressive policies
We in Anonymous have sensed your displeasure and we also note the ever-increasing tide of propaganda
and the iron fist of the state being used more and more often to put down dissent before it begins. It is almost
impossible to fight the government when working inside the laws that the government makes because, more
often than not, such laws are designed to prevent those with legitimate grievances from doing this. Justice is
now merely a commodity, which only the wealthy can afford.
Anonymous invites you to join us. We are at this moment organising a widespread rebellion against the
establishment and for freedom against the United Kingdom establishment. If you sympathise with our aims
then you too are anonymous. Any of you can be anonymous just as anyone can reject injustice and fight for
the common good of humankind. We can Provide tools training and assistance. Whether you choose to
storm parliament is up to you.
One thing is certain; Inaction in this instance will only result in the further erosion of your rights, freedom and
your quality of life.
The board is set. The pieces are moving. Please share this message widely.
Join us.
1. How to get involved in Anonymous and #opbritain.
The main idea behind being anonymous is to be just that - anonymous. Hide your identity at all times while
working towards whatever goals you set. On the Internet, most of your identity is found within an IP
ADDRESS, which looks something like this:
This number, your IP ADDRESS can be used to trace you back to your country, your Internet provider, and
your computer and in some cases even your physical location. Therefore, it is essential that you hide it at all
times while working with anonymous. This also applies to your personal details and anything that could be
used to identify your real world identify. Reveal as little information as possible about yourself.
Anonymous is an open structure. Anyone can get involved and put forwards an idea. What determines
whether Anonymous acts upon the idea is simply a matter of how many members of Anonymous agree with
the idea.
2. What you need to do in order to be Anonymous.
IRC Chat is a huge part of the Anonymous world. To get started, the best way is to use a java chat portal (like
this one http://www.irc.lc/anonops/opbritain ) and ask on the channel for set-up advice. #opbritain admins are
usually around to help/assist people in getting set up with IRC. This will be the base for Operation Britain and
you can get downloads for DDOS/Hacking software from the admins here.
If you would like to try dedicated IRC software then XChat works on both Linux and PC
http://xchat.org/download/ .
And for Mac there is: http://colloquy.info/downloads.html
If using a software client you will need to type /server irc.anonops.ru and then /join #opbritain to access our
As mentioned, the main thing you need to do to be anonymous is to hide your real-world identity. Anonymous
uses a variety of means to do this. Here are 4 of the simplest:
A. Tor - Download at:
Windows: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=FTWXXVB8
Linux(x86/x64): http://bit.ly/fxYxUp
Mac OS-X (Intel): http://bit.ly/fkcR00
Mac OS-X (PowerPC): http://bit.ly/etyaX8
Android: http://bit.ly/eg33Gv Instructions: http://bit.ly/9qEoHg
iPhone: http://bit.ly/crmAdR
Nokia Maemo: http://bit.ly/fZAU3x <--Experimental

New TOR users should read this: http://bit.ly/gZO7xO for setup advice.

Tor is basically an Internet proxy that uses a set of servers to bounce your connections through, it gives you
the option to pick where you want to "Be from" E.G: You live in the UK and you want to look like you are in
the US, find someone who has the US flag next to their name and click it. You will now have their IP. (Until
you turn tor off.). It is important to remember that TOR does not work with anonops IRC and only hides your
information from whatever is accessed via the TOR Portable Firefox browser.
B. Vhost
Vhost is used on the anonops IRC chat server to hide your IP from people inspecting your online presence
on the chat channels. Completely free, you simply register your nickname by typing:
/nickserv register invent@afakeemailaddresshere.com
/nickserv identify
Now type /join #vhost which will take you to the vhost serving channel and type something like: !vhost
Your IP address will now be obscured by hide@me.with.a.vhost.com on the IRC server. Remember, this
does not hide your IP from websites or any other means of communication.

VPN is another way to hide your identity online. This is basically a way to connect to a fast computer via an
encrypted connection that accesses the Internet on your behalf. To get set up with VPN,
Once you set up this program and connect to the Cyberghost server, it will encrypt and change the IP of your
entire Internet connection. Anything accessed will be accessed via the Cyberghost server and you will
appear to be connecting from there. VPN is one of the most reliable ways to be anonymous on the Internet
as long as you pick the right provider.

(General compatibility advice for Cyberghost http://cyberghostvpn.com/blog/en/2011/03/cyberghost-vpn-now-
with-openvpn/ )

The main idea of HTTPS is to create a secure, encrypted channel over an insecure network. This ensures
reasonable protection from eavesdroppers and man-in-the-middle attacks. You can use this to protect
yourself when you connect to websites. Simply replace http with https whenever you type an URL. There are
also plugins such as Https Everywhere that do this automatically.
E. Fake Identities and Accounts
Using your personal email addresses and social networking accounts for anything to do with Anonymous is
probably one of the easiest ways to help people to find out who you are. Never use anything that contains
your real IP, your personal email address, your real name, or any of your real data for anything in
anonymous. Instead, use programs such as TOR or a VPN to hide your ip address and sign up for a
separate "anonymous account" to use for anythng related to your activities within anonymous. Many sites
also accept disposable email providers such as http://www.10minutemail.com.
If you learn to use these 5 techniques and associated programs then you should effectively be almost
completely Anonymous online and be very difficult to trace.
4. The aims and strategies of #OPBRITAIN
The aims of #opbritain can be summed up simply: Build a united, leaderless, ego-free community of
resistance that will actively attack the UK establishment via the internet and help train people to do so. We
are a collective and often work as a collective. There is no I in Anonymous.
Everyone can be a part of this as there is much more to anonymous than hacking and DDOS attacks. If you
can use a computer and can access the #opbritain chat channel, then you probably have much that you can
#OPBRITAIN will be actively engaging supporters of the establishment online. Anyone who is part of or who
collaborates with the government, corporations or anyone else oppressing the people of the United Kingdom
will be a legitimate target.
To decide these targets, we simply discuss on #opbritain and switch to private, secure methods of
communication where concrete proposals are formed. Anyone can suggest ideas or put forward their
opinions no matter what skill level they are personally at with hacktivism. We invite you to join us at
Thanks to: Anonymous. Please share this file.
We are anonymous
We are legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget
Expect us.
