Lauri Love is an alleged hacker from Stradishall, England who is no stranger to government persecution. Beginning in October 2013, the United States government unsealed three indictments against Lauri in the Southern District of New York, Northern New Jersey and the Eastern District of Virginia for his supposed involvement in #OpLastResort, an Anonymous operation that was undertaken in the wake of the suicide of Aaron Swartz. Aaron committed suicide on January 11th, 2013 after relentless persecution by US justice system over computer crime-related allegations. When OpLastResort launched, it included the following in its statement:
Anonymous has observed for some time now the trajectory of justice in the United States with growing concern. We have marked the departure of this system from the noble ideals in which it was born and enshrined. We have seen the erosion of due process, the dilution of constitutional rights, the usurpation of the rightful authority of courts by the “discretion” of prosecutors. We have seen how the law is wielded less and less to uphold justice, and more and more to exercise control, authority and power in the interests of oppression or personal gain.
How You Can Help
Lauri will first and foremost need an extensive legal defense fund to fight any extradition attempts the US government may put forward.
