Overview

#OpSafeWinter is an operation orchestrated by members of the cyber group Anonymous aiming to help homeless people survive worldwide during the winter of 2013 and 2014.

Background

On November 7th, 2013, a Pastebin[2] page was created announcing the launch of #OpSafeWinter, which provided instructions on how to assist the poor and homeless to survive the harsh winter in many areas of the world.

“Fellow Anon and Citizens of the world, We are proud to announce #OPSafeWinter. In this age of consumerism there is very little love or care about each other, we’re here to change that. No longer shall we stand by and watch isolation and fear be spread by the establishment, which is killing and destroying community and lives. We all have a voice, so make yours heard, you are the power, your choice, your life, you are the motivation for justice.”

Notable Developments

On November 10th, 2013, YouTuber Anonymous uploaded a video titled “#OpSafeWinter Engaged,” which urged viewers to assist homeless people around the world by giving them needed money, food and clothing (shown below).



On November 16th, a Facebook[3] page titled “Anonymous OpSafeWinter” was launched. On November 25th, the OpSafeWinter blog was created, featuring news and updates regarding the operation worldwide. On December 15th, a post was submitted to the Occupy Forums urging members of the Occupy movement to join #OpSafeWinter. On January 3rd, 2014, an animated GIF was submitted to Imgur,[6] which featured a Guy Fawkes mask wearing a Santa Claus with “#OPSAFEWINTER” written on the brim and snow falling in the background (shown below).



On the following day, the Internet news blog The Daily Dot published an article about the operation. As of January 2014, the @OPSafeWinter[4] Twitter feed has accumulated upwards of 1,400 followers.
