Welcome to WhyWeProtest! Given how large and active the WhyWeProtest community is, and how much information has been amassed in the WhyWeProtest forums, it is understandable that new visitors to the site may feel overwhelmed and unsure of where they should start. For these reasons the WhyWeProtest community have produced this guide. It is strongly recommended that all new users and visitors read this guide in full. This guide is intended to give an introduction to WhyWeProtest including its culture and its history, to provide tips on protecting your anonymity, and to provide tips on how to participate in WhyWeProtest initiatives. Important note: WhyWeProtest does not support, condone or endorse any illegal activities. If you, as a visitor, have come to WhyWeProtest seeking out such activities (eg: hacking, DDOS, violence, etc.) then you have come to the wrong place. Any postings made that advocate any illegal activity will be removed and the poster banned. We encourage all members of the WhyWeProtest community to report such postings by using the ‘report’ link – this will greatly assist WhyWeProtest staff to remove any calls for illegal activity. Important note: The WhyWeProtest community strongly recommends that all participants maintain their anonymity when conducting WhyWeProtest activism. It is strongly recommended that you do not log into WhyWeProtest using your Facebook, Twitter or Google+ account unless you are using an anonymised sock account – doing otherwise could compromise your anonymity.
