Anonymous Going Old-School on Egyptian Government, Now Attacking With Faxes…

With the Internet being blocked in Egypt by the government trying to squelch protests, Anonymous is going Old School and employing fax machines to help fight the power.

Anonymous is translating and faxing copies of Egypt-related cables which WikiLeaks released today (along with helpful tips like how to make homemade gasmasks) to schools and other fax numbers in Egypt . The goal is to serve as a connection with the outside world, to warn Egyptians that the police can not be trusted, and to offer supportive information, including  information about a French ISP setting up free dial-up Internet access for people in Egypt.

If you are interested in helping out you can join this chat room where these activities are being coordinated.
