NOT MY PRESIDENT, NOT MY WAR! THIS WHOLE SYSTEM IS ROTTEN TO THE CORE!
In solidarity with the billions around the world who are being oppressed under the Bush agenda, The Internet Liberation Front has hacked and defaced six Republican websites who push forward the sick and violent ideology of warfare, capitalism, and profit over people.
The will of the people was not expressed in these elections. Imperialist war, tax cuts for the rich, and ecological destruction are not in the interest of working people or the stability of our global society. The bush administration are rich lying thieves, these inaugurations are a joke, and the whole system is corrupt.
We will not be their slaves and let them get away with murder. Activists and hackers alike are rising up to resist the Bush administration using street protest, sabatage, and hacktivism. You won't hear about it on their televisions cause the revolution is in the streets!
The massive counter-inauguration protests in DC is only the beginning. Expect four more years of resistance to the U.S. war machine. Hacktivists of the world, unite!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
January 18, 2005
To coincide with the massive protests in DC against the inauguration of George W. Bush, the Internet Liberation Front has launched a hacktivist campaign against Republican websites. Six websites were hacked and defaced with a statement against the Bush agenda of war and corporate cronyism.
"The will of the people was not expressed in these elections. Imperialist war, tax cuts for the rich, and ecological destruction are not in the interest of working people or the stability of our global society.", the hackers wrote in a statement posted on the websites belonging to the Arizona Young Republicans, Students4Freedom.com, CollegeConservative.com, Freedominion.ca, RepublicanFirst.com, and Freedominstitute.ca.
The hackers, calling themselves the Internet Liberation Front, has done no damage to the systems and do not believe hacktivism to be a violent tactic. "Using direct action techniques such as website defacements and financial disruption, 'hacktivists' are able to put pressure and accountability on politicians to make progressive and revolutionary changes".

What is the Internet Liberation Front(ILF)?

We are not a specific group of people. We are a generation of hackers who feel indignation and want to build a world free from parasitic bosses and rulers. All who want to join the resistance movement are free to use the name ILF. We are everywhere!
