Barrett Brown: A Jailed American Dissident

If you watched the excellent Anonymous documentary We are Legion, you will be familiar with Barrett Brown.  The interview below is from March 2011, but I found it really interesting since in it Barrett cryptically discusses his potential future arrest; an event that ultimately took place in September 2012.  When asked about him being targeted for arrest he states amusingly:

I mean Texans and indictments…it’s like a Texas Bar Mitzvah.  My dad was indicted, you know, I have friends that have been indicted, have gone to prison…it happens.

There is a Free Barrett Brown twitter account if you have any interest in following his story further.

In Liberty,
Mike

We Are Legion: The Story of Anonymous

I watched this movie last night at the precipice of the end of the world and it blew my mind on so many levels.  I had no idea about the history of this movement or even any of the central players involved.  It’s sad what many of them have been put through just to send a message, but the good news is that it proves the establishment is scared.  It’s really an incredible documentary.  I waited until this evening to post so that it would go up when people might have the time to sit and watch.  I highly suggest you do.  If for the lulz if nothing else.  I’m glad these guys are on our side.  Enjoy.
