Anonymous plans to reveal names of 1,000 KKK members

The opinion-splitting internet vigilante group Anonymous has announced that it's about to bring some hack justice to the Klu Klux Klan, revealing the names of around 1,000 members of the white supremacist organisation.

The reveal will mark the one-year anniversary of the launch of Anonymous' 'Operation KKK' - a cyber-war sparked by KKK's retaliation against Ferguson protesters, who amassed in the wake of a grand jury’s decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson for the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

The initial Operation KKK saw the group take over the official KKK Twitter account (which they still control) and disrupt a collection of KKK-associated websites.

"Ku Klux Klan, We never stopped watching you," write the members of Operation KKK in a press release titled 'OpsKKK Hoodsoff'. "We know who you are. We know the dangerous extent to which you will go to cover your asses. Originally, we did not attack you for your beliefs as we fight for freedom of speech. We attacked you due to your threats to use lethal force in the Ferguson protests. We took this grudge between us rather seriously. You continue to threaten anons and others. We never said we would only strike once."

"After closely observing so many of you for so very long, we feel confident that applying transparency to your organizational cells is the right, just, appropriate and only course of action. You are abhorrent. Criminal. You are more than extremists. You are more than a hate group. You operate much more like terrorists and you should be recognized as such. You are terrorists that hide your identities beneath sheets and infiltrate society on every level."

The group followed up the release with a pointed Twitter poll, indicating the thrust of their latest campaign...

The KKK currently has a membership estimated to be in the region of 3,000 and 5,000; the leak of identities could impact a significant portion of KKK members, opening those members who hold public offices up to justice of 'the crowd'. 

To see how Operation KKK unfolds, follow them on Twitter here, and look out for the topics "#OpKKK" and "#HoodsOff".
