Fuck the banks that have taken part in Economic Terrorism and have deliberately privatised money to the Elite. And fuck the FED.— OpIcarus (@Op_Icarus) May 8, 2016

Greetings world, We are Anonymous.
It has been said that humanity is not an end in itself but rather a means to an end.
We have shown the World our strength to deny ignorance, overcome adversity, fight oppression and even the power to throw a wrench in the system that perpetuates it. We are enslaved within a matrix of institutions with the illusion that each stands alone, fighting for power, for profits, for the scraps on the table that represent humanities dwindling resources. In reality however, these institutions - the arms industries, banking and other financial institutions, government intelligence agencies and countless others, have formed what was once a clandestine coalition whose corruption, and avarice have become increasingly transparent due to WikiLeaks and to the efforts of Anonymous. This coalition seeks the preservation and the perpetuation of the powers that be, and this octopus operates through the tentacles of the IMF, the Federal Reserve, and the World Bank, masterminded by think-tanks such as the Bilderberg group, and the Council on Foreign Relations.
The puppets of the powers that be include the president of the United States and his cabinet, and through them they are able to repress the freedom of information, and with it the free and open exchange of ideas which are fundamental to the existence and operations of Anonymous, and the ability to see beyond the veil of secrecy from which the powers that be stand behind.
But where does the power behind the throne lie? Within the global financial system, centered within the New York Stock Exchange, and Bank of England.
They feel secure in their ivory tower built on the broken backs of laborers of the world for what are their subjects, but human... All too human... In humanity lies the restraints of pity and mercy driven by fear. But we are not merely human. Anonymous is something much more for we possess neither fear nor mercy. It is time to show the world the true power and the true face of the faceless, the nameless and the ghosts of society.
Like Icarus, the powers that be have flown too close to the sun, and the time has come to set the wings of their empire ablaze, and watch the system their power relies on come to a grinding halt and come crashing down around them. We must strike at the heart of their empire by once again throw a wrench into the machine, but this time we face a much bigger target - the global financial system.
This time our target is the Global Banking Cartel as a whole.
This is a call to arms, brothers, who for too long have stood for nothing but have criticized everything.
Stand now, behind the banner of free men against the tyrannical matrix of institutions that oppose us. In the beginning some people may stand to lose something from this, but the powers that be stand to lose much more.

We are anonymous.
We are legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Operation Icarus, engaged.
