Free Jeremy Hammond

At the time of his arrest in March, he was assisting in organizing protests against the NATO summit. He is accused of being part of OpAntiSec, a combined effort of Anonymous and Lulzsec targeting government servers as well as those of the military industrial complex. In particular, one of the many fruits of this operation has been released on Wikileaks as “The Global Intelligence Files”. Consisting of thousands of emails from the private intelligence service Stratfor, the emails reveal the corruption rampant in the company; the flawed and biased information that helped determine U.S. foreign policy, as well as government discussions on monitoring and infiltrating domestic organizations such as Occupy.

From "Quick Background on the Jeremy Hammond Support Network":
Socially, we want to draw attention to the importance of what have been termed digital freedoms, of privacy, the right to share information, and the right to expose corruption and misdeeds. Politically, we want charges dropped against all alleged Anon political prisoners and activists and an end to government suppression of all dissenting voices.
