(1888PressRelease) June 16, 2009 - Houston, TX - Anonymous has opened a new dedicated forum at Iran.WhyWeProtest.Net. This forum is for sharing tools, tactics, proxies, and news with people in Iran.
There is an updated list of proxy machines which users in Iran can use to get past blocks. Anonymous is setting up proxies for Iran, and calls on people over the world to follow their example - these proxies should be limited to only allow contact from Iran, to stop spam from the outside world. The forum has more information.
Among the tools which the site promotes is TOR The Onion Router, but it needs to be understood that this is not a magic tool and it needs to be set up correctly to work. The forum describes how this tool must be set up. Anonymous calls on people all over the world to set up TOR exit nodes for Iran, and to monitor these against abuse. Please check your local terms of service and your local laws.
Anonymous are anonymous people, generally on the Internet. The name has been associated with activists who fight against online censorship with humor, protests, and social media. Please see iran.whyweprotest.net
