"When Internet activists are getting longer prison sentences than rapists you have to wonder what kind of world we’re leaving for our kids." In a world where we see every day how goverments, banks, and corporations strip away our privacy and freedoms in the name of greed, power, and control, Ivan Muñoz (a.k.a. Vigilante) is stepping up to release the single "It’s Our Time" in an effort to raise funds for the members of the hacktivist group Anonymous currently facing prosecution.
"All the money raised by this single will be donated to The Anonymous Solidarity Network, which exists to provide legal, financial, and moral support for activists facing prosecution for involvement - alleged or otherwise - in Anonymous actions."
Anonymous activism has emerged as a way to keep the balance between corrupt governments, ruthless corporations, and the people. As a consequence of this, many members like Jeremmy Hammond, Barrett Brown, Mercedes Haefer, Higinio Ochoa, and many more face jail time for their efforts.
Vigilante has stated, "It is in moments like this that we need to make a difference and show to our brothers and sisters they are not alone, that we need to stand together in solidarity and fight against this kind of injustice, to lead the way so more people rise up without fear, and we could find a way together to create a better world for us and our future generations with more justice, more peace, and more freedom."
"It’s Our Time" will be released on July 4th, including several remixes from great artists from all over the world - XPQ-21, Consumer Junk/Must We Unite, T3RR0R 3RR0R, Kill the Sleeper, Devil’s Guts, Aktivehate, Dolls of Pain, Gothika, Ambassador 21, BAK XIII, Kontrolled Demoliton, Zeitgeist Zero, Distorted World, En Esch. The song will be part of the new Vigilante album Turning Point.
