Looks like Anonymous is set to strike against Chinese government websites this February 13, an action of solidarity (on Tibetan independence day) which is being reported across Twitter. We’d like to thank @AnonymousTibet for sharing news of this and to all those hacktivists who will be taking part, including #teamriddler #Op_Tibet and #BlackHat. Your active support for Tibet’s just cause is greatly appreciated. Thanks to @anonymzmeduza for her graphic.

A massive shout-out to our Twitter buddies @Glasto4TIBET who with just a few days to go before the Glastonbury Festival launches have been 24/7 across action for #teamGlasto4TIBET. Looks like Tibet’s flag will be flying again thanks to some amazing folks who have offered their support in ensuring that the issue of Tibet will have a positive presence at the event. This year the team is joined by Karen from Cambridgeshire, England and we are so happy to hear that in the town itself #teamGlasto4TIBET has two partners who will be showing solidarity with the people of Tibet.
It’s so cool to welcome The King Arthur pub and Hundred Monkeys a vegetarian restaurant, both based in the center of Glastonbury, thank you so very much for supporting #teamGlasto4TIBET. Anyone visiting the town is recommended to check out their fine foods and beers, you will be sure to get a great welcome, especially if you support Tibet 🙂
There’s a been a number of reports coming out of Tibet’s eastern regions of Kham and Amdo about Tibetans protesting against Chinese mining corporations that are causing environmental pollution and destruction of ecology. One such company is mining for gold at a mountain considered sacred by Tibetans, now it has attracted the attention of Anonymous hacktivists who have been all over social media in the past few days to notify folks that the website of that Chinese company is to be targeted. Today our Twitter account received further information on this and what’s been called ‘Operation Goldfucker’ has been launched. Many thanks to @AnonymousTibet and @teamriddler for sharing updates on this ongoing action.
The promise of Summer sunshine and blue skies is back along with music festivals, none of course bigger than England’s Glastonbury, which attracts an amazing range of musicians and artists. For a few days the magical countryside surrounding that English town hosts a tented city for over a hundred thousand folks, it is the biggest celebration on the planet, until that is Tibet regains its independence!
As our subscribers and friends will know over the past few years we’ve been raising the issue of Tibet at the festival and are very happy to announce that with the very awesome support of friends in the United Kingdom will be running a Tibet action at #Glastonbury2016.
So, working with our Twitter colleagues @tibettruth we hope to repeat the success of previous years during which in a totally fun and positive way we ensured that Tibet, its flag and struggle was not forgotten.
If you have a ticket for Glastonbury Festival, or know someone who has, and wish to help then do tweet @Glasto4TIBET #teamGlasto4TIBET
Keep it here good people 🙂
Anonymous hacktivists have announced on Twitter a day of action in support of Tibet taking place on February 13, a day coinciding with an historic declaration of Tibetan independence. Further details have not so far been released but we can anticipate that Chinese government websites will be targeted. Stay tuned as be sure that you will get all breaking news on this here, and via our Facebook and Twitter accounts. Many thanks to @AnonymousTibet for sharing news on this and to @anonymzmeduza for posting the graphic.

Well that’s it folks another Glastonbury Festival has ended, the army of tents that has populated the green fields of England’s county of Somerset are being packed away, the lines of dazed and happy festival-goers head to the train and coach stations and local highways get tailbacks as the great convoy heads home. It’s been an amazing few days of music, sleep has been in short supply, the buzz simply too much, that’s sure been the case with our project #teamGlasto4TIBET. Once again we ensured that Tibet made a very visible presence across the festival with Tibetan flags appearing at major performances. None more so of course than that of Ms Patti Smith, whose passionate set was briefly joined by an on stage appearance of the Dalai Lama who received a fabulous welcome from the crowd, who sang Happy Birthday to him. As he looked out into the ocean of faces there before him flew the Tibetan national flag, a colorful and powerful reminder that the cause of his country is not forgotten and continues to attract the concern and support of people around the world. We were very proud and honored to be at the center of such action, as we were earlier in the day during a talk given by the Dalai Lama at which #teamGlasto4TIBET raised Tibet’s national emblem.
It’s vital that the issue of Tibet is given maximum exposure, after all China’s waging an ideological ware against the cause of Tibet so it becomes of critical importance to counter the propaganda and censorship. That is why #teamGlasto4TIBET was across the Glastonbury Festival not only to provide a statement of visual support for Tibet but in cooperation with our online activism enabling the issue to be shared, discussed and highlighted across the internet. Coordinating a presence at the site with live discussions on social media such as Twitter and Facebook generated massive exposure, reaching people across the world who maybe previously had little knowledge of the issue. Such actions would not be possible without the dedication, solidarity and kindness of a whole bunch of folks who contributed towards those objectives, in that regard let’s hear it for our warriors for Tibet; John Tumbridge, Abbie Learoyd-Smith Luis Vilchis for keeping Tibet’s flag flying at the festival and sharing some wonderful images. Speaking of which, a shout-out to our Twitter friend @plutoscave for sharing amazing screen captures of the television stream. Thanks also to Peter Yerod for being an active member of the #teamGlasto4TIBET Facebook group. Appreciation must also be given to colleagues running @tibettruth, who have worked tirelessly over the past few days getting information out across Twitter and generating massive awareness on Tibet. Special mention must also be made to our friends in England who designed and administered the #teamGlasto4TIBET action pack, an awesome job indeed.
It’s been huge, thanks to all our friends and subscribers who have been following and sharing news of our activism on Glastonbury Festival, let’s hope that we can meet again next year.
