Hacktivist group Anonymous, which has made public attacks on extremists, corporations and religious and governmental bodies, is calling for help in its fight against international paedophile networks, or what it calls the “paedosadist industry”.
In a project named Operation DeathEaters, Anonymous says it is is planning on collating evidence against international paedophile rings and their severe abuse of children and find the links between different operations, and to bring them to justice.
Anonymous has issued a video instructing activists on how they can aid in the operation, which has appeared at a time of serious allegations of historic child sexual abuse levied against prominent UK figures, including claims that a VIP Westminster paedophile ring existed in the past.
“The Westminster paedophile ring is one of many cases where Operation DeathEaters has actively pursued and sought truth, in order to end the hideous crimes concealed behind the British elite,” Anonymous alleges in a statement.
“In fear of these investigations being bungled over time, the operation’s objectives are clear and simple: source public information before it disappears, push for independent enquiry, and offer support to witnesses and the victims where needed.”
The group references a number of findings from investigations into to the alleged Westminster paedophile ring as part of its list of cases being examined under Operation DeathEaters, including cases against Jimmy Savile, Cyril Smith, claims of wide-scale abuse allegedly documented at Elm Guest House and the work of the now-defunct Paedophile International Exchange.
Anonymous states the objective of Operation DeathEaters is to achieve an independent, internationally linked, victim-led tribunal or inquiry into the trafficking and “paedosadism industry”.
It has outlined its first step in the operation as gathering “meticulously researched and clearly documented examples of high level complicity in the industry, obstruction of justice and cover ups to show the need for independent inquiries”.
Anonymous is planning on setting up a database to be able to map the connections between cases, and is calling on its followers to research cases of high level corruption and to “present them widely and clearly” by sharing the information across social media, and to find “qualified and trusted people” who should be chosen to serve on the independent, victim-led inquiries.
