Anonymous: Charlie Hebdo Deaths Will Be Avenged

By    |   Monday, 12 Jan 2015 01:47 PM

Anonymous, the international hacker collective, has pledged to avenge the deaths of cartoonists and others who died during the attack on the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo last week.

"Anonymous has always fought for the freedom of speech, and will never let this right besmirched by obscurantism and mysticism," read a Wednesday press release posted to the Twitter account of the group's Operation Charlie Hebdo.

"Charlie Hebdo, historical figure of satirical journalism has been targeted. Anonymous must remind every citizens that the press' freedom is a fundement of the democracy. Opinions, speech, newspaper articles without threats nor pressure, all those things are rights you can't change."

In other tweets, it asked anyone interested in helping the movement to collect intelligence on terrorist's online activity.



On Saturday, it claimed its first victory against its targets by taking down a French website promoting jihadist activity.

Mashable reported that the jihadist website was down for at least an hour, but returned online at one point. On Monday, it appeared to be down again, and forwarded to the search engine DuckDuckGo, a favorite among privacy hawks because it does not track a user's activity as Google does.
