The Anonymous Solidarity Network began in September of 2011 to assist those arrested by law enforcement for activities related to the Anonymous collective. The group assists those imprisoned by providing legal assistance, commissary money, books, letters to help keep their spirits up, and by raising awareness to the plight of those arrested; in most cases, for little more than crimes of thought. Nancy Norelli, lawyer for freeanons.org, took the time to relay questions and answers to the collective.
"The Anonymous Solidarity Network was formed as a corporation in September 2011 to assist Anonymous in the worldwide crackdown against hacktivists that began in earnest at that time. The persecution has continued until this day, with law enforcement using such dubious tactics as entrapment to secure cases. We collect donations to provide emergency funds, and track prosecutions and investigations."
"We maintain a constant presence on irc.anonops.com #FreeAnons which has generously provided a home base for us for 2 years. Many people work behind the scenes there to keep us going. We are there to answer any questions or concerns about arrests or investigations.
We maintain several twitter and Facebook accounts, along with two websites, in order to spread our message. @AnonymousVideo supports us by producing amazing video and media for the arrested. We collect donations to assist with emergency funds, and network with other activists and lawyers who work to support Anonymous.
