Anonymous PH Calls for Masked Protest Tomorrow

Anonymous PH Calls for Masked Protest Tomorrow

Yesterday, a number of government websites were defaced by Anonymous Philippines to show their dismay with the current political situation in the country. The hacked websites were also used as a beacon to encourage Filipinos to join the Million Mask March which is happening tomorrow, November 5.

Roughly the same time last year, the group also launched an attack to several LGU sites with the same intent of urging the masses to join the hacktivist group’s annual protest against corrupt government.

Million Mask March


Anonymous Philippines’ message this year reads, “Throw your political ideologies to the side on November 5th and stand tall with a fellow human against worldwide government corruption and tyranny.”

As of the time of writing, Anonymous Philippine’s picture/message has already been taken down on almost all of the affected websites. Moreover, some sites that were hacked are now back up, while most are still down or still under maintenance.

    The end does not justify the means. Hacking govt websites particularly those that offer public service is atrocious.

    Parang hilaw. Konti pa lang ang nakakaalam.

    The only real way to end corruption is to annihilate and kill the source of corruption itself. Corrupt politicians are like ants. No matter how many of them gets killed, they will come over and over again until the source is destroyed. Slay all the corrupt people. Wipe the slate clean, burn it down!

    Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot…

    Howd they do that? It shows internet is unsafe no matter what type of security you have on. Regarding Anonymous. I remain neutral.

    why not use their hacking skills to hack emails or any internet connections of those corrupt politicians and offer their findings to the investigating bodies, like the senate or NBI.

    Senator Cayetano grab some pictures posted because it was posted freely, but after that incident that instagram poster disabled her account.

    alot can still be discovered if these hackers put their skills to that use, instead of hacking legitimate gov’t. websites.

    what good will hacking a gov’t website give us?
    well, 1 thing is they can advertise the Nov. 5 event, then what?

    In the United Kingdom, corruption is instantly buried and disposed of! Their simplistic lifestyle allows them to think clearly and what is best for the Britons. Should our country be hit by a massive earthquake that will destroy 90% of our country, Philippines will get a massive wake up call; its like the fire of 1666. A year that London will never forget… In this Southeast Asian country, ANYONE’S OPINIONS DON’T MATTER!
