We are friends of the American Revolution. We are the Anonymous Solidarity Network.
We are a collective of Anons and the friends and family of Anons facing prosecution for alleged involvement in Anonymous activities. Our ranks are not exclusive and we have no leaders. Any can join us and all are welcome to contribute to our direction.
For us to continue our voyage, however, we need your support.
We need you to board our ship and to set sail with us.
We cannot promise you safe voyage but we promise that if our ship is sunk, the compass which guides us will continue to guide those which follow us, and will lead them and those that follow them safely to the oasis which we seek; Freedom for all arrested Anons.
“Freedom’s Frigate” is the nickname of a sailing ship now on its way to America. It’s a replica of the French vessel that helped our country win the war of independence. As memorials to American wars go, this one goes right back to the first one — the Revolutionary War. And it is certainly among the most handsome and most intricate history lessons ever built.
A newly-launched replica of the French frigate, Hermione, is now in mid-Atlantic, ploughing her way westward toward the U.S. East Coast. She’s retracing the voyage of the original Hermione, whose mission was so crucial in the American War of Independence that she may be one of the most important warships in U.S. naval history, and the most forgotten.
The French aristocrat and great friend of George Washington’s, the Marquis de Lafayette, was returning to the revolutionary battle aboard Hermione on that 1780 voyage, and he was bringing good news — that French troops and more fighting ships were also coming to America to support the cause.
French ground troops played a major role in the final defeat of the British at Yorktown, Virginia, in 1781. That victory would not have happened if French warships hadn’t beaten off a British fleet in the Battle of the Virginia Capes.
A lot of that has been forgotten as water has passed under the keel of history.
The new Hermione was built to refresh peoples’ memories.
