"Do something amazing this winter... that’s the point."

So said the administrator of @OpSafeWinter,
the Twitter account heading up public relations for Anonymous' most ambitious project for 2013 and 2014.
We spoke to the Anonymous member via Twitter direct message
for an exclusive interview on the umbrella project dubbed #OpSafeWinter.
The goal is to get Anons and "civilians" out into the streets all over the world to save lives
by giving the homeless and the critically poor the tools they need to survive at least one more season.

Because it is an international operation, including operatives on both sides of the Equator,
the "winter" of the title continues all year long, switching hemispheres at the equinox.
They will, essentially, never run out of winter.
As New England faces the wrath of Hercules, Anonymous lines up to fight back with sleeping bags, mittens, and hot meals.

The operation was announced in a Pastebin November 7, when it became apparent that this season
would bring some truly cruel weather to North America, Europe, and Asia.
It quickly gained popularity among Anons,
many of whom have been itching to get back into the streets for some direct, and positive, action.
This kind of do-gooder op is problematic for some older Anons,
who remember the days when it was all done with keyboards for the lulz;
they call this "moralfagging" with all the contempt they can muster, but since 2008,
when Anonymous went up against Scientology in OpChanology,
moralfagging has been an important part of the fractious collective.

It can also be highly effective.
While actually eliminating homelessness is a problem even Anonymous can't tackle with confidence,
making sure some people have food, warm clothes, and some basic tools like flashlights
is the kind of thing that appeals to a very wide swathe of the population.
Indeed, in our interview OpSafeWinter made it clear
that one doesn't need to be a part of Anonymous to participate and support.

Friday, for example, everyone in New York, Anon or not,
was invited to participate in a potluck at 60 Wall Street at 6:30pm,
and Occupy was one of the groups supporting the event.
OpSafeWinter not only works directly with some organizations,
but also just goes ahead and RT's and spreads the word when it becomes aware of similar efforts by other groups.
As well, it incorporates many pre-existing localized Ops.

"OpSafeWinter is [an] Anonymous operation, which involves #OpFeedHomeless, OpNatal (Brazil)
OpELE (France), #opXMAS (Canada) based & OpHelpingHand (Venezuela)," OpSafeWinter told us.
Activist and author Heather Marsh lists
#OpSyriaAid (coming soon)
as participants in the umbrella operation.
"Operations cant work separated but with one goal and same cause to help to homeless people and [the] poor," added OpSafeWinter.
The Pirate Pad planning document lists 13 American cities participating,
although the coordinator for Houston has retired after December burnout.

There are only 12 countries officially involved, but as support grows, the paperwork falls behind.
"Thats not final number because we are adding twitter accounts with local initiatives regularly every day,
about 80+ locations for now.
Portland is doing epic things, as [are] Anon UK based activists."
The UK arm of the op is one of the most active, and one of the first to get involved.
Almost a year ago this video of Anonymous Nottingham encountering a homeless man went viral,
and almost certainly helped inspire the birth of the current operation. more on Daily

Remember 5th of November
#Anonymous #MillionMaskMarch #OpVendetta #ExpectUs

Protesters wearing Guy Fawkes masks to mark their support of the Anonymous hactivist movement
are staging protests all around the world on Tuesday.
The self-styled legion of activists is opposing corporate and government corruption.

Read RT's live updates on the march protests

The global action on November 5 coincides with Guy Fawkes Day, which is celebrated by Britain
with fireworks to remind of the botched attempt to blow up the Parliament in 1605.
But the image of the notorious plotter has a new meaning for Anonymous and their supporters today.
The Guy Fawkes mask was adopted by the hacker activists from the V for Vendetta graphic novel and film
as a symbol of the anarchic fight against tyranny.

"You cannot buy the Revolution. You can only be the Revolution. It is in your spirit or it is nowhere."

Anonymous originally chose Scientology
as a campaign target
because of the events surrounding
the now infamous Tom Cruise Scientology video.
While the video itself was not enough to spark interest,
the untamed aggression of the Church of Scientology to remove it did.

Since our campaign began,
Anonymous has uncovered or brought into the public eye
hundreds of illegal actions, fraudulent activities,
and human rights violations
perpetrated by the Church of Scientology.

Anonymous is a cultural phenomenon
which began on internet image boards.
Many such boards require no registration for posting,
and every poster remains Anonymous.
This format of communication is inherently noisy and chaotic.
However, the unprecedented openness of this medium
of communication is representative of the new age we live in.
