This is on behalf of the many people who would like to send their condolences to Mr. Collins’ family but fear the dreaded Facebook app or giving away their privacy by submitting an email address in order to do so. It is sad that in today’s world that Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Speech, and the right to protest have been so eroded in such a manner. This also bespeaks to the respect to Mr. Collins’ and his family knowing that his mother raised a son who was willing to stand up for his convictions. May he rest in peace.

هذا هو نيابة عن كثير من الناس الذين يرغبون في إرسال تعازيهم ل عائلة السيد كولينز " لكنهم يخشون ان الفيسبوك التطبيق اللعين أو التخلي عن خصوصياتهم من خلال تقديم عنوان بريد إلكتروني من أجل القيام بذلك. ومن المحزن أنه في عالم اليوم أن حرية التعبير، حرية التعبير، و الحق في الاحتجاج قد تآكلت حتى في مثل هذه الطريقة. هذا ينم أيضا على احترام للسيد كولينز وعائلته مع العلم أن والدته رفعت الابن الذي كان على استعداد للدفاع عن قناعات . فليرقد بسلام.

Ceci est au nom des nombreuses personnes qui voudraient envoyer leurs condoléances à la famille de M. Collins , mais craindre le redoutable application Facebook ou de donner leur vie privée en soumettant une adresse e-mail afin de le faire . Il est triste que dans le monde d' aujourd'hui que la liberté d'expression , la liberté d'expression , et le droit de manifester ont été tellement érodée dans une telle manière. Cette témoigne aussi à l' égard de M. Collins et sa famille sachant que sa mère a élevé un fils qui était prêt à défendre des convictions . qu'il repose en paix.

Dies ist im Namen der vielen Menschen , die gerne ihr Beileid zu Mr. Collins ' Familie zu senden , aber fürchten die gefürchtete Facebook-App oder verlosen ihre Privatsphäre durch die Vorlage eine E-Mail -Adresse, um dies zu tun. Es ist traurig , dass in der heutigen Welt , die Meinungsfreiheit, Redefreiheit und das Recht zu protestieren Zeit habe ich in einer solchen Weise ausgehöhlt . Dies zeugt auch für die in Bezug auf Mr. Collins ' und seiner Familie zu wissen, dass seine Mutter hob einen Sohn , der bereit ist , sich für Verurteilungen war . möge er in Frieden ruhen.

Hoc velim pro quorum multi ad D. consolantibus Collins donandaeve familiae uitam egerunt sed metuito submittendo metuendaque Facebook app ut an email oratio est. Tristis est quia in mundo huius temporis libertatem significationis libertatis poenas pendentis erosis et ius ita fuisse queri . Ad hoc etiam dicit de Mr. Collins suscitavit filium matris familiam suam voluit sciens stabit persuasionem. Requiescat in pace.
Esto es en nombre de las muchas personas que deseen enviar sus condolencias a la familia del Sr. Collins ', pero temer la aplicación de Facebook temida o regalar su privacidad mediante la presentación de una dirección de correo electrónico con el fin de hacerlo. Es triste que en el mundo de hoy que la libertad de expresión , la libertad de expresión y el derecho a la protesta han sido tan erosionado de tal manera . Esto también nos habla de la relación con el Sr. Collins y su familia sabiendo que su madre crió a un hijo que estaba dispuesto a defender convicciones. Que descanse en paz.

You will be remembered evermore, when we march, when we fight for freedom, we will remember you, the one who fell to the bullet of a cowardly dog of a man. You fought, you protested, and then, in your final hour, you wore the mask that means so much, you selflessly gave, you served us all, as humanity, it grieves me so noble a man was killed in so wicked a way... You, shall be remembered....

Dear man we have lost another free spirit we much needed here, but we fear not many of us know we shall meet again in a much better place.

Owen was one of the the most humble anons i have ever met, he gave his freedom for you and for me. And still after being taken from us, he came back and continued to support our cause. We must carry on and fight the good fight for those that laid the foundation of this revolution before us. We will all be waiting for you to log back in, im sure they have ubuntu up there.....

To the Collins family and all of Dennis' friends, my deepest condolences. Take pride in the fact that Dennis helped so many people so selflessly, with only their interests in mind. An exemplary human being that we are all lessened by his passing. Rest In Freedom, Dennis <3

To Owen's family, you must have a pretty good idea about how much we all loved and respected him. Hopefully that is a comfort knowing we share his loss. No matter what future unfolds Owen was a warrior fighting the good fight. His fearlessness was contagious, inspiring an unapologetic lulzy and effective rebellion against seemingly unassailable forces of corruption. Thank you, for sharing him with us.

Thank you Owen! I am a stranger to you but I humbly thank you for all you have done and intended to do, for your own world specifically, and humanity on mass. You are the exemplar of what it means to be human sir! No doubt your short time on this planet will continue to inspire minds as long history proceeds forward. My empathys to those close to Owen, whom feel this loss most directly. You are not alone. Please do expect us... know that Owen will never be forgot. Thanks again my anon brother. hà¢k┼hΣP└âπΣt

You have changed the world, you sacrificed yourself for just causes, Operation Italy was born also thanks to your work, when it ends a life there are no enemies. The pain can not be erased, but your strength has brought many smiles around the world. A sincere greeting.

I have never heard of him, let alone meet him until today. But reading about how he was, I can safely say, I knew him. During OccupyGezi in İstanbul, when I helped save 54 cats from tear gas clouds, risking to get caught by the police, and when I hid 6 other protesters in my flat, for hours, I was Dennis Owen Collins a bit. This is what being true means, holding on to the notion that the entire mankind is your brethren, even those in power don't agree, and are not happy that you do. Dennis Owen Collins and alike, they were born when mankind invented empathy and compassion, and will live through us and new ones to come as their values and love. Rest in peace.

To me, owen was the answer to, "why in anon math is 13+14 equal 26?" Because the paypal 14 and the payback13 shared a defendant: Dennis Collins. To those who had the privilege of knowing him better, he was much, much, more.

Rest in Love, anon. You can't arrest an idea. You are noe free to roam mischievously in all our hearts. WE DO NOT FORGET.

I didn't know Dennis, but I know Sue Crabtree...for his loss to have such a devastating effect on her then I know Dennis must have been incredibly special. His loss will be felt as deeply as his massive presence in life was felt.
When someone dies that you love even more than yourself, you realise they can never be gone. They are often the one who looked so deep inside you and the further in they went , the more lovely you became to them.
This is a two way transfer process, sitting deep inside of you is the essence of that person.
The essence of a truly uniquely wonderful man.
Love from Wendy.

owen, I read a comment made on an article by a child once, it said, "I am 14 and when I'm old enough I am going to join Anonymous." That means you've already won, owen. Your compassion will live forever through the example you set for Anonymous and the World. One of these days Anonymous and the World is going to get it all put straight, and it is because of you. "And the World will live as one." Can you imagine, owen? I think you did and that's how you won. Thank you and bless you.

You were an inspiration to so many, your strength was admired by all.
Your final words to Hig were, "say hello to your beautiful wife for me!" Those words will stay with me forever. We love you Dennis, you will continue to live on in the hearts of the collective. Rest peacefully <3 <3 <3

Shine On Brother, shine on.

They may have struck down a beautiful, strong man, but not his message, nor his light. Those will forever burn in the hearts, passed down to each & everyone who will pick up the torch to carry. As with all Anons, strike one down, will cause many more to appear. Do not weep long, for we must continue the fight that Owen carried. With great respect. Love Peace Truth & Justice.

Just a week older than me, an unkown brother. We do not forget!
Requiescat In Pace.

I really liked your radio talk shows, just the day before I was talking about making posters for your radio events. Your dedication was an inspiration to me, thank you and see you on the other side.

I didnt have the honor of getting to know Owen well before he passed, but I will always remember and appreciate the support and help that he provided me as a new "anon". With Owen's passing, we have lost someone who exemplifies the type of person the world needs more of.
May you rest in peace in the world of your dreams, Owen.

I did not have the pleasure of knowing Owen but any person who fights for what they believe in and works for a better world has my admiration and respect. This life was a lost for us all. May we all be more like Owen and fight for a better world. - Lucy

The fight for anonymity

Shared by Gabriella Coleman on July 23, 2015

 Many people don't understand Anonymous. They don't understand that there are people out there, past and present, who have dedicated a significant part of their life building up an infrastructure and idea so that people can take the name and use the resources to fight for a better world. They don't understand that there are strong connections and friendships that get built through these pseudonymous channels and that many individuals take on real risk when they supported various political causes around the world through the banner of Anonymous. Owen was one such core contributor who fervently believed in the idea and egalitarian ethic behind Anonymous and who also worked on building and maintaining the IRC infrastructure so that others could join in and be part of something larger than themselves, so that they could be part of a collective who fights for the right to be obscure. This right embodies a series of defiant, principled refusals; a refusal to allow the state to track its citizens; a refusal to allow corporations to convert personal communications into profit or manipulate their personal desires; a refusal to capitalize off each other’s labor and, especially risks; a refusal, in essence, to prevent a powerful idea—that we are and can be anonymous—from withering away. Before Owne left his body he has done his part to ensure that a powerful idea will remain here with us for at least a while longer. Thank you Owen.


A dear friend and great mentor

Shared by Pidgey Snorelax on July 22, 2015

Iowa (I still prefer that nick) was not only a great friend, but for the last five years has been my mentor as well. As always, he was a very honest, upfront and rough, but always caring and always looking out for me. If it were not for him, I would never have come this far. He inspired me, and helped me develop a curiosity for learning, and improving myself. He did not only teach me about IT, but also about basic things in the world, like respect, willingness to learn and teach, and so on. A lot of people who knew him well know what I'm talking about. Dennis and I had a special kind of relationship. We often called each other "dad" and "son". Though I do have a great father IRL as well, I considered Dennis almost as a second dad.
During the time he was on trial, it was very hard for us to keep in touch, which was a very difficult time. I sent him mails, once in a while. Though he was not allowed to reply, he told me he really appreciated them, and that he always kept an eye on me, through facebook, which we shared a long time before ( stalking much :') ).
Regardless of his snappy behavior and his cynical remarks, he was a caring person, who never had to think twice about spending time and effort caring about his mother, his friends, or the network he had maintained for such a long time.
Owen, my dear friend/mentor/semi-dad, thanks for guiding me, looking out for me, and teaching me. Thanks for all the good times we spent together, you being there for me when I was down, trusting me, even though I was a brat... I wouldn't have come this far if it wasn't for you. I will miss our idle chat and your advice. But you will always be guiding me. It was a shame we never got to meet in real life, even though we were already planning to make it happen. Instead, I, and all your friends from IRC, will raise a glass in memory of you. You shall never be forgotten.

The best friend I ever had

Shared by Sue Crabtree on July 19, 2015

I don't even know where to begin when it comes to my friendship with Dennis.  We talked so often that it all seems to be a big blur at the moment.  I used to jokingly tell people that I was his wife and he would respond "Yeah and the only one I will ever have".  We laughed.  Our son of course was a furry character named elmo.  Dennis and I spent countless hours on the phone and to say I feel so lucky to have known him in such a personal way is an understatement.  We talked about so many things;  his deep love and concern for his mom, his plans for the future, his court case updates and we talked about me.  He told me I'm too emotional, I get my feelings hurt too easily and sometimes he would even snap at me and say "damned women"! lol.  When he was upset, he would send me a message to call him and we would talk and find a way through things.  When he was worried, we worried together.  When he was angry, well then I was angry too.  And when he was having medical problems, I lectured and he ignored me. He was the best friend I've ever had.  So many times we talked about meeting and just talking face to face.  That chance never happened and I regret that so much but I know one thing to be true;  Dennis was always so open with me and me with him, that a face to face moment wouldn't have changed anything other than my one wish and that would be to have hugged him and held him.  Oh Dennis how you made me laugh.  Your online antics kept many of us laughing.  Just last week I kissed him in IRC and he responded with "ewww" lol.  I can't think of all the times he teased me and picked on me for being an "internet dummy" but little did he know, I was smarter than he thought and I did it just so that we could chat together.  Yes, I could not have loved him more if I had been able to give him that hug.  He's right where he belongs and where he's always my heart.  Somehow, with the help of our mutual friends, I will find a way through this and to a place where I smile and laugh each time I think of my dear friend but for now, I'll sit here and know that he is smiling down on me and saying "Ha!  I got you this time"!  We both know what that means.  My friend is not gone and he is not forgotten because I just won't let that happen.  <3 <3 <3
