Hackers urge protest, deface government sites-A A +A
Sunday, November 3, 2013
MANILA (Updated) - The hacker group Anonymous Philippines defaced some Philippine government sites on Sunday and called on public to join a million mask protest on November 5.
Posted on their pages is the following message: "We apologize for this inconvenience, but this is the only easiest way we could convey our message to you, our dear brothers and sisters who are tired of this cruelty and this false democracy, tired of this government and the politicians who only think about themselves.”
“The government, in many ways, has failed its Filipino citizens. We have been deprived of things, which they have promised to give; what our late heroes have promised us to give. Let us remind the government that fairness, justice and freedom are more than words. They are perspectives,” the statement added.
The group also urged the public to join the protest on November 5, outside the gates of Batasang Pambansa.
“A march is happening, a revolution. A way to speak, a way to be heard. On the fifth day of November, 2013, we will try to be a part of the history," it said.(Sunnex)
