Anonymous Publishes Names and Addresses of Supposed EDL Members

By Gary Cutlack on at

Hackers claiming to be part of the Anonymous gang have published personal details of people it claims are EDL members and supporters, with a message from Anonymous saying it's about to start a "systematic and comprehensive desiccation" of the inflammatory racist group.

Citing the recent killing of Drummer Lee Rigby as a key motivation, the hackers published an audio message on YouTube, saying of the EDL: "Under the guise of national pride you have instigated crimes against the innocent and incited the subjugation of Muslims. We will not allow your injustices, your lies, and your stupidity, to further radicalise our youth into fearing and despising their fellow man."

The list of alleged EDL members and supposed donors is easy enough to track down online via the Twitter hashtag #OpEDL, if you are minded to do so. [YouTube via Guardian]
