The PLF is delighted to announce that Commander X, aka Christopher Mark Doyon - has fled the jurisdiction of the USA and entered the relative safety of the nation of Canada. Using the underground railroad and network of safe houses created after the launch of Operation Vendetta in January 2011 (following the initial FBI raids on Anonymous USA), Commander X was spirited to the Canadian border - where he hiked through the forest of the north west into Canada.
Peoples Liberation Front Press Release - Commander X Escapes Into Exile

Saturday - February 11, 2012

The PLF is delighted to announce that Commander X, aka Christopher Mark Doyon - has fled the jurisdiction of the USA and entered the relative safety of the nation of Canada. Using the underground railroad and network of safe houses created after the launch of Operation Vendetta in January 2011 (following the initial FBI raids on Anonymous USA), Commander X was spirited to the Canadian border - where he hiked through the forest of the north west into Canada.

The Peoples Liberation Front would like to thank our friends and allies in Anonymous and the Occupy USA movement for their invaluable assistance in creating this dissident escape network, and for the great care they took with the first person to utilize it to seek freedom from the tyranny of the USA. Every person along the way acted with great discretion and professionalism, and treated the "package" with deep honor, respect and concern.

The PLF calls upon the government of the USA to come to it's senses and cease the harassment, surveillance - and arrest of not only Anonymous, but ALL activists. We DEMAND that the USA drop all charges against the Anonymous 15 immediately and apologize for harassing these courageous human rights and information activists. We DEMAND that President Obama immediately grant a full executive pardon to Bradley Manning, and order an end to the investigation of Julian Assange. As for Commander X, he will release a communique shortly detailing his own demands of the government of the USA.

The Peoples Liberation Front calls upon the government of Canada to NOT co-operate with the USA in apprehending Commander X, or any other Anons or PLF Members. The PLF reminds Canada of it's decades long and noble tradition of harboring American political dissidents during times of great tyranny in the USA. Finally we call upon all Canadian members of the PLF and Anonymous to lend any aid or assistance possible to Commander X.

SIGNED -- PLF Central Command

I hope you're all aware that Canada updated it's extradition laws back in the late 1990's. Right? They WILL extradite someone back to the US that is fleeing a court case. And the updated law specifically calls out internet crimes. If the US government wants to go after him, Canada will find him and send him back. He's now in more trouble than he ever was.

He may have set his plan in motion expecting he'd be named in an additional event on charges.

Yet, with all the panache we've come to expect from this revolutionary media stoker, X, you will be missed.

We can all learn something from you in how you create interest when there isn't any and then capture the spot light by riding the lightening and claiming that you created the storm!! I'm super impressed by the various storms i see your name attached to and I humbly bow to your excellence.

X is the king.

did he go through Ross Lake? I always wonder what the route is into Canada. A guy in my high school class just disappeared in the North cascades, but it was sort of weird, where they found all his stuff in his vehicle so he might have disappeared near the car

He is a good man. Gave me a rock with the word 'peace' on it. Back before the peace camp. I pray the best for him. He will stand as a legend among men. A true bodhisattva.

I really feel sorry for all the people that listened to him. It is is easy, sexy, and a blow against the man, he says. Just go to my website and download this and you can bring it down just like snapping your fingers. But don't worry, they can't prosecute, it's just like a civil rights sit in. Except that the civil rights protesters never bugged out to Canada when the heat got turned up.

Chris, what will you say to the people you left holding the bag? The ones now under fear from a knock or a phone call from the feds? Some of us can't just pack it in and hitch hike north.
