#Anonymous Calls Massive Cyber-Attack On Canadian FEDs A Protest Against C-51

Posted: June 19, 2015 in Tech

The hacker collective Anonymous is taking credit for a massive cyber-attack on the federal government that made multiple government websites go dark [Wednesday] afternoon — apparently in protest against the Harper government’s controversial security legislation, C-51.

“A bill which is a clear violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as removing our legal protections enshrined in the Magna Carta for 800 years,” reads the script for an Anonymous video posted on YouTube. “Perhaps it was fate that the day the Magna Carta arrived in our country to go on display to the populace that our corrupt government was symbolically pissing upon it and us all.”

The video goes on to say that C-51 targets minorities and forces Canadians to trade privacy for security.

“Today, Anons risked their freedoms for you. We now ask that you follow suit. Stand for your rights, take to the streets and protest this 20th of June,” says the narrator.
