Washington D.C. Demonstration in Honor of Aaron Swartz

Washington D.C. Demonstration in Honor of Aaron Swartz

Aaron Swartz was an American computer programmer, writer, archivist, political organizer, and Internet activist. A true hero to many and an inspiration to all, his life was cut short but his actions and voice will always be in our hearts. They say when someone dies; and angel gets its wings. The only thing wrong with this picture is that a true angel has perished but his work and motivation still lives within us and will never burn out.

Today, 1/15/2013, is Aaron Swartz funeral. Many tears will be shed but the wonderful memories will be playing in everyone’s mind. His compassion and will power for a better tomorrow is the direction we all need to follow and walk.

As his body is laid to rest, his image will be burned in our minds with a fire flaming out of control for justice and an apology from the Department of Justice. Days after his death, the DOJ finally dropped Aarons’ charges, something that should’ve been done when no true crime was committed and only free public documents we downloaded.

As the hive prepares to take action in Honor of Aaron Swartz we are also setting up a peaceful protest against the DOJ as well in honor of the fallen hero, Aaron Swartz. We ask all anons, non-anons, activist, friends and family to come to the streets in a professional manner and voice our opinions and concerns to the DOJ. More heroes and dedicated individuals will be gone if nothing is done.

We must stand up and speak our minds. Stop the injustice and corrupted lies.

Just us, in a moment of solidarity in a peaceful protest for our brother, Aaron Swartz.

Important Update : Protest address is 950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20530-0001.

    I will never forget that you died trying to help people educate themselves.

    I remember reading and watching Aaron as a 14 year old. I hate how badly he was “bullied” and hounded by the (in)justice department until the last spark of his will to live was ground out of him. RIP Aaron. You earned better than what you got.

    Such a good deed, wanted to keep the people empowered through education. While the government is hoping for the exact opposite. If they keep us ignorant its easier to control us. So tragic he lost his life for their hidden agendas…. :( Rest in Peace and look over us :)

    please fix: “and angel gets its wings”- in the first paragraph; it kills the impact.
