About

Dancing For Anons is a fundraising campaign launched by supporters of FreeAnons.org,[4] a Florida-based company that aims to help members of Anonymous who have been criminally prosecuted.

Background

On April 23rd, 2013, YouTuber Francophone uploaded a video titled “FreeAnons Donation Campaign,” asking for donations[2] to help Freeanons Solidarity Inc. provide financial support for members of Anonymous facing legal troubles Within the first three months, the WePay[2] donation page collected over $9,9999.



On July 23rd, 2013, Sue Crabtree launched a Facebook event[1] titled “Dancing for Donations to Assist FreeAnons.org,” announcing a campaign to promote the fundraiser by encouraging people to make videos of themselves dancing in front of the camera.

We have chosen to create a fun event where some very dedicated Anons have volunteered to make total asses of themselves to solicit your donations and support. I hope these ridiculous videos brighten your day and all that we ask is that you consider any size donation to FreeAnons so that we may continue to assist the ones that fight for all. Of course, if you’re brave enough to make a fool of yourself for a great cause, please send us your videos of support. It’s alright, act foolish for a great cause.

Notable Developments

On the same day, YouTuber N Green uploaded the first dance video titled “Dancing for donations to assist FreeAnons.org” (shown below), which was subsequently posted to the Facebook event page where it received more than 220 comments and 35 likes in the next 10 days.

On July 31st, YouTuber Lupewuzhere uploaded a video of himself dancing in front of the camera as the White Spy from the Mad Magazine comic series Spy Vs. Spy in support of FreeAnons (shown below, right). On August 2nd, 2013, The Daily Dot[5] reported on the Anonymous operation, in which Crabtree revealed that the campaign was conceived as a joke, but ended up providing much needed assistance to members of Anonymous facing prosecution.

So the “geniuses” behind opIsrael, opUSA, and opNorthKorea among many more poorly conceived acts of cyber vigilantism want to dance for me so I can throw money at them like its a strip club so they can then use said money to bail hackers out of jail so they may perform even more poorly conceived acts of vigilantism?

I’m pretty damn sure there’s better things i can waste money on.
