Anonymous se ha encargado de respaldar a WikiLeaks lanzando efectivos ataques informáticos contra los sitios de Amazon, PayPal, MasterCard; este refinado colectivo de hackers ha emitido un comunicado para los medios y ciudadanos del mundo

En una carta bien redactada y repleta de acertadas citas que denotan una ideología libre pero bien definida, el misterioso colectivo de hackers Anonymous que saltó en defensa de WikiLeaks tras las represalias ejecutadas en contra de esta organización luego del "Cablegate", ha encabezado una serie de de ataques informáticos, finamente orquestados, en contra de aquellos que accedieron a boicotear a WikiLeaks: Amazon que dejó de ofrecer sus servidores a Wikileaks, PayPal y MasterCard que bloquearon la posibilidad de que la organización recibiera donaciones, e incluso Twitter (quien parece ser el próximo objetivo de Anonymous) por censurar la información relacionada a esta organización internacional de sus trending topics. La operación ha sido denominada "Payback Operation" en una clara alusión al contraataque como método de defensa.

A continuación presentamos íntegramente la carta publicada por Anonymous, y explícitamente dirigida "a los medios de comunicación y ciudadanos del mundo libre" para compartirnos su filosofía, sus intenciones, y sus potenciales objetivos. Decidimos no traducir la carta en afán de respetar la lúcida redacción del comunicado:

Our Message, Intentions, and Potential Targets
"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves."
- Abraham Lincoln
"He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither."
– Benjamin Franklin

Hello World. We are Anonymous. What you do or do not know about us is irrelevant. We have decided to write to you, the media, and all citizens of the free world at large to inform you of the message, our intentions, potential targets, and our ongoing peaceful campaign for freedom.

"True, This! —
Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold
The arch-enchanters wand! — itself a nothing! —
But taking sorcery from the master-hand
To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike
The loud earth breathless! — Take away the sword —
States can be saved without it!"
- The CardinalRichelieu; Or the Conspiracy by: Edward Bulwer-Lytton

The message is simple: Freedom of Speech. Anonymous is peacefully campaigning for Freedom of Speech everywhere in all forms. Freedom of Speech for: The Internet, for journalism and journalists, and citizens of the world at large. Regardless of what you think or have to say; Anonymous is campaigning for you.

The recent news of our campaigns has been, at best, misinformed. Anonymous is not always the same group of people. The Constitution of the United States is said to be a living document, because it can be edited, amended; changed at the will of the people to suit the peoples' needs. In that same vein, Anonymous is a living idea. Anonymous is an idea that can be edited, updated, remanded, changed on a whim. We are living consciousness. We are not a terrorist organization as governments, demagogues, and the media would have you believe. At this time Anonymous is a consciousness focused on campaigning peacefully for Freedom of Speech. We ask the world to support us, not for our sake, but for your own. When governments control freedom they control you. The Internet is the last bastion of freedom in this evolving technical world. The Internet is capable of connecting us all. When we are connected we are strong. When we are strong we have power. When we have power we are able to do the impossible. This is why the government is moving on Wikileaks. This is what they fear. They fear our power when we unite. Do not forget this.

"...Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men." - Monsignor, Boondock Saints

Anonymous' intentions are very clear. We are not vigilantes, regardless of the sentiment of quoting Boondock Saints, we are people on a campaign for freedom. Anonymous' intentions are to change the current way the governments of the world and the people view true Freedom of Speech and The Internet. Anonymous is willing, ready, and able to campaign for the freedom for all. We are campaigning right now as you read the news, watch the television, fight with your significant other, love your children, hate your neighbor, criticize the man or woman next to you. We are campaigning. The goal is simple: Win the right to keep the Internet free of any control from any entity, corporation, or government. We will do this until our, proverbial, dying breath. We do this not only for our selves, but for the world and its people at large.
"Truth is treason in the empire of lies."
- Ron Paul
Pay attention citizens, governments, and the world. Anonymous' peaceful campaign will focus on any organization, corporation, government, or entity until the Internet is truly free.

Anonymous is doing what many successful campaigns have done in the past; a sit-in. It may be hard to comprehend, but a digital sit-in is our most effective method to show that all of us deserve Freedom of Speech and a free Internet. Our methods may appear, on the outside, to be cruel to those the entities that we are campaigning against, but remember buy supporting censorship they are denying everyone a basic human right. Any person, corporation, government, or miscellaneous entity that stops supporting censorship and starts promoting Freedom of Speech and a free Internet will become our allies. Anonymous, at this time, wants to persuade our counterparts rather than hurt them. We are campaigning for freedom for everyone, even the opposing side.

Do not fear us. Anonymous' campaign does not intend to harm the individual citizen, any organizations, any websites, or government, that supports true freedom of speech. Anonymous' past is not our present. We are here for all of you; to campaign for all of you. Where others have made this promise and failed; we make this promise and aim to keep it for everyone.

Anything attributed, credited, or tagged to Anonymous is not always what we do. We are not always the same consciousness on a yearly, monthly, or even hourly basis. Do not believe everything you hear or read on the news. Anonymous is often credited with actions that are not campaigned for by Anonymous. The true core of Anonymous is here to help the free world for now. Anonymous wishes to represent the truth and ask that you as a citizen, media organization, or government do the same.
La película "The Other Side of the Wind" filmada en 1972 por el genial Orson Welles, descrita como una obra maestra por los que han visto las imágenes, estaría cerca de poder ser estrenada

Una película descrita como “una obra maestra” filmada por Orson Welles en 1972 está lista para llegar a la pantalla de plata. “The Other Side pf the Wind” (El Otro Lado del Viento”) muestra las últimas horas de un director de cine que Welles habría modelado en John Huston, Ernest Hemingway y él mismo. The Guardian reporta que Welles le habría dicho a John Huston que aparece en el protagónico “Es sobre un director bastardo, ensimismado, que atrapa personas, las crea y las destruye. Es sobre nosotros, John”.

La película, la cual nunca fue terminada de editar por Welles, ha  sido víctima de una lucha por los derechos entre la viuda de un familiar del Shah de Irán, la ex amante croata de Orson Welles, Oja Kodar, quien estelarizó y co-escribió la película y otro productores involucrados. Pero ahora un abogado de Hollywood llamado Kenneth Slide ha dicho que en las próximas semanas el caso estaría por resolverse a favor de la distribución de la película.

El hijo del legendario John Huston, Danny, describe el pieteaje como “absolutamente fascinante” y recuerda que Welles había dejado extensas notas de edición al actor y director Peter Bogdanovich, quien está involucrado en traer el film a la pantalla.

La productora Francoise Widhoff, quien colaboró en la obra maestra F for Fake, pasó un mes en el set de la filmación y describe las imágenes como una obra maestra moderna, pero cree que la película no debería de ser editada, para no traicionar a Welles.
