Wisconsin Wire: New Hacktivist Group Formed In Wisconsin, Pledges to
restore elections
September 11, 2011
By Segway Jeremy Ryan <http://www.addictinginfo.org/author/segway/>

the days of Anonymous, Lulzsec, and several other groups that have a similar
cause, a new group emerged today. Seemingly inspired by the famous web
activism group Anonymous, Wisconsin Legion formed to help bring light to
Wisconsin politics. In a message delivered on video they pledge to not stop
until elections are fair in the state of Wisconsin. This is something I,
personally, can get behind. Wisconsin is ground zero for the fight against
the current fascist agenda. Wisconsin Legion is clear to note that they are
not at all part of Anonymous but do fight for the same principles fought for
by Anonymous, just on a more local level. As a journalist and activist I was
able to get a connection into the Wisconsin Legion group. They stated that
they are a group of dedicated people purely focused on getting attention to
the injustices in Wisconsin. The first official statement from the group is
shown here:

On this day, September the 11th 2011 we take time to remember those who lost
their lives in these tragic attacks and the wars that followed, whether or
not called for, the troops who fought in said wars with the objective of
serving our country and keeping us safe must also be recognized. But we must
all go deeper than that. That is why, on this day, we are announcing a new
force. September 11, 2001 changed our country in so many ways. We banded
together and neighbor helped neighbor, people were united and we made it
through because of this unity. The battle is no longer how do we move past
September 11th. The battle is now with an enemy within. In Wisconsin, for
example, elections are bought and stolen, there is no longer true democracy.
So we have formed the Wisconsin Legion. Our goal is to bring light to the
Wisconsin injustices otherwise not covered by the media. Our goal is to
restore Democracy so that people can once again become unified. Wisconsin
has been infiltrated by ALEC plants such as John Nygren and Robin Vos that
have no interest other than that of the very corporations that caused this
mess. The people must be informed. The people must rise up. Who are we? We
are not Anonymous (although our identities are). We share the same ideals
with the web group Anonymous and may use some of the same tools, but we do
not claim to be nor are we a branch of Anonymous. We would be more than
willing to work with any other groups such as anonymous and lulzsec and such
to further a common goal. We will not have a heiarchy, a similarity with
Anonymous. We will, however, expose the truth. In a world where everything
is concealed we will fight for transparency. Nothing we do will be
malicious. Much like Anonymous, our goal is not to cause damage yet to bring
exposure to a topic. MSNBC is owned by GOP partners. We must realize as a
whole the media in all aspects has failed us. We must look to less
traditional media. And we must move forward as a state and as a country. We
will not stop until all election injustices have been corrected. This is not
a partisan battle. This is a battle for everyone who believes in this

From this statement I feel like things are about to get interesting here in
Wisconsin. The group informs me that their first action is going to be
tomorrow planned to bring light to the DOA/GAB connection. Let’s just hope
they are able to pull something off because the media has failed us in
getting the real stories across. I will continue to cover activities of this
new web group and am happy to hear someone is working on bringing light to
these issues. Until we finally get justice, we shall continue ONE DAY LONGER
