Hacktivist group Anonymous will descend upon the houses of “elite” establishment figures whom they claim have been involved in an extensive cover-up of historic child sex abuse and trafficking.

In a video released on YouTube, the group claims to be aware of a document which, if uncovered, would lead to the revelation of numerous establishment figures involved in the cover-up of child abuse spanning decades and continents.

Activists say the aim of the protest, taking place on the evening of Friday, February 13, was not to cause havoc but to raise public awareness of the “pedosadist industry.”

One activist told Sky News: “This isn’t a situation where we are looking to create mayhem. It’s about giving the public information so we can confront these problems that go back decades.

“The stories that are coming out are the torture and murder of children with our trusted politicians and that is unacceptable.”

The group’s website says the objective is to establish an “independent, internationally linked, victim-led inquiry/tribunal into the child trafficking and pedosadist industry.

If you are thinking ‘Kill the Bad Guys’ is the solution, you have no idea. We need nothing less than a complete examination of who we are,” it adds.

They call those who have abused their positions of power to participate in sexual abuse of children “Death Eaters” and say it is not only a problem in the UK.

The Death Eaters have their counterparts in every country and international organization. From Scouts and the Catholic Church in Canada to Epstein in the US, from the UN in Somalia to the disappearances in Mexico, Death Eaters worldwide have been preying on our children and on our vulnerable,” the Facebook event for the rally reads.

The video references Prince Andrew’s relationship with disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and the claims he used an underage girl as a “sex slave” at one of Epstein’s infamous parties.

The protest comes weeks after Home Secretary Theresa May announced the latest chairman of the Historic Sex Abuse Inquiry, examining a suspected Westminster pedophile ring which operated during the 1980s.

The inquiry has been plagued with problems since its inception in 2014, with both its previous chairs, Fiona Woolf and Baroness Butler-Sloss, stepping down amid conflicts-of-interest scandals.

New Zealand High Court Judge Lowell Goddard was chosen because she had no previous links to the UK establishment.

Following evidence from a witness known as 'Nick', the Metropolitan Police have begun investigating the murders of three young boys dating back to the 1970s and 80s.

Nick alleges the existence of a VIP Westminster pedophile ring involving politicians, and says he was present at an “abuse party” where two boys were killed.

There are concerns, however, that Anonymous actions on Friday could jeopardize formal investigations.

Former head of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection center (CEOP), Jim Gamble, told Sky News: “It's fraught with so many difficulties.”

He welcomed any attempts to come forward to police with information targeting pedophiles, but warned that working outside a framework could result in “reckless disclosure” that might “ruin lives.”
