While they originally helped inspire part of the crowds heading down to Wall Street to protest, Anonymous, the hacktivists centred partially around the 4Chan image boards, have invited users worldwide to DDOS the New York Stock Exchange website on the 10th of October.
Their video which inspires thoughts of Bonzie Buddy, it details that on the 10th of October – a day like many other Anonymous attack dates that would “never be forgot – they would be targeting the NYSE website, attempting to bring it down towards the end of the day, taking out all stock tickers for the last half hour of trading on the 10th, and potentially the first hour of the 11th.
The transcript of the video reads:
“It seems that the government and Federal agencies enjoy enforcing the law a little bit too much. They instate unjust laws as mindless automatons, blindly following orders with soulless precision.
We witness the Government enforcing the laws that punish the 99% while allowing the 1% to escape justice, unharmed, for their crimes against the people.
We have observed this same Government failing to enforce even the minimal legal restraints of Wall Street’s abuses. This Government who has willingly ignored the greed at Wall Street has even bailed out the perpetrators that have caused our crisis.
We will not stand by and watch the system take over our way of life.
We the people shall stand against the government’s inaction.
We the people will not be witnesses to your corruption and ill gotten profits.
We will not labor for your leisure.
We will not assist you in any way.
This is why we choose to declare our war against the New York Stock Exchange. We can no longer stay silent as the population is being exploited and forced to make sacrifices in the name of profit.
We will show the world that we are true to our word. On October 10th, NYSE shall be erased from the Internet. On October 10th, expect a day that will never, ever, be forgotten.
Vox Populi, Vox Anon.
The Voice of The People is The Voice of Anonymous.
We are Legion. We are the 99%.
We do not forgive. We do not forget.
Wall Street: Expect us.”
