Tim Gauthier

The frontman and moniker familiarized by the Occupy Wall Street movement, Anonymous, has frequently attacked Neo-Nazi activists across Europe, trying to remove all web-outlets praising their organization. Earlier this morning, Anonymous successfully hacked their ‘mail-order’ website, sending this message, alongside an Atari Teenage Riot track, to all members linked within their server:

‘Anonymous’ confront alleged police brutality

Tim Gauthier

In CNN’s latest report of ‘Anonymous’, the radical protest group supporting the “Occupy” movement, they’ve featured several new incidents following recent public reactions to the political outcry. This editorial referring to the ‘alleged police brutality’ shows a variety of clips from the Anonymous YouTube network, one featuring Atari Teenage Riots “Black Flags”- a track that has been the soundtrack to their protest since it’s inception. This broadcast has reached the attention of the CNN network, with a national showcase throughout the previous weekend.

Message from Atari Teenage Riot:
“Atari Teenage Riot wants YOU to be in their viral video for “Black Flags.”

If you want to be in the video and show that you support the ideals mentioned above, please send us the following footage:

· Take your mobile phone, webcam or any other camera and film yourself lip-synching the song http://soundcloud.com/alec_empire/atari-teenage-riot-black-flags

· Have a black flag in the background, or hold it while you’re lip-syncing. (The black flag motif will link all images together. If you don’t have one to hand, use a black T-shirt, pull it inside out, stick the arms into it…there you go.)

· You can choose any location for it. If you want to do it at home, great. If you know a crazy location, do it there. (In front of your school or university? At a shopping mall? With your friends at a party?)

· We will use fragments of all videos, which are sent in and ultimately add all of you to the official video.

· If you want to support the idea but want to do so anonymously, you can cover your face. No problem.
