Firstly, apologies to friends and subscribers who may have noticed our online absence recently. This has been caused by two laptops used for editing the site and social media actions crashing and becoming inoperable.
This has meant using community libraries, but with the hysteria surrounding the current flu-virus that alternative has been shut-down.
Right now this post has been possible via a friend’s kindness, but we sorely need to get a replacement and wondered if those who support our activism for Tibet would consider making a donation towards our goal of buying a Dell 15 Inspiron 7000 .
Our blog is not usually a chosen platform for such a request, however to restore unrestricted online operations we need ASAP support towards our very limited funds. Which is why we’ve decided to make this post in the hope you may kindly consider donating towards our goal of $1000, that would enable us to invest in a new laptop.
With the commemoration of the 1959 Lhasa Uprising on March 10 we’d like to invite friends and subscribers to show support for Tibet’s just cause by joining our online lobby of political representatives.
It only takes a few minutes but sends a powerful communication in support of Tibetan national freedom to your local and regional politician.
With just over 24 hours to go before Anonymous launch their planned strike (against Chinese corporate and government sites linked with the mass surveillance of Tibetans) activists with Operation Tibet have already been causing havoc. A number of sites have been hacked, CCTV cameras across China broken into and made vulnerable to further damage. One of the major corporations enabling China’s regime to suppress the people of Tibet with facial recognition and big data monitoring has had it’s server crashed by a recent attack.

These actions have been conducted by the digital activists #blackhat. In the past hour an anonymous account on Twitter @JohnDoe14314155 has posted news that the same collective is claiming “more than 500 thousand Chinese websites are infected with MIRAI”. This particular form of cyber attack has caused massive global damage to websites and networks in the past, injecting malware into servers and computers transforming them into remotely accessible bots. These can then be exploited and used to initiate further attacks, on a similarly immense scale.
A digital chaos is being inflicted by those within Operation Tibet and over the next day or so it looks to be getting a whole lot worse for Chinese corporate and government websites. Anyone raising Tibet’s national flag on ‘Tibetan Independence Day’ on February 13 will be smiling with delight at this incredible support from Anonymous . We shall of course keep right across developments.
Our Twitter crew @tibettruth is reporting that Anonymous activists within #blackhat_global and #thecreed have today hacked into cctv cams across mainland China. A large number have been exposed and posted online, vulnerabilities that can be exploited further.

This action seems to be linked to the targets and issues mentioned in a video statement released a couple of days back by ‘Operation Tibet’.
In that broadcast they highlighted the mass surveillance technology which targets and oppresses Tibetans. No doubt there will be more strikes launched in the days running up to February 13 (Tibetan Independence Day) we shall be sure to keep you posted of news as and when it breaks.
Meanwhile shout-out to @JohnDoe14314155 for sharing information on this.
Our Twitter crew @tibettruth has received a couple of hours ago a communication from #blackhat_global #Op_Tibet #TheCreed Anonymous activists involved in covert operations against China’s regime.
In an action described as ‘Operation Warm Up’ Anonymous crashed some of the available 6,057 RDP Chinese targets, disabling large numbers of computers from connecting to networks, including those of the Chinese authorities.
This remarkable strike was launched in advance of what chatter across Twitter suggests will be further action on February 13, a date marking Tibetan Independence Day.
We’d like to thank all those who engineered and implemented this latest digital assault against Chinese targets, we are aware of the risks and sacrifices required to plan and launch such actions. That activists operating within #blackhat_global #Op_Tibet #TheCreed are prepared to take a stand in support of Tibet’s just cause is a greatly welcomed expression of solidarity.
Taking the path of anonymous hack-tivism must be a lonely, challenging and indeed a courageous action. After all the corrupted governments and corporations targeted regard such activity as illegal. There exists a real risk of prosecution. Yet despite such risks anonymous activists are prepared to stand against injustice, tyranny and censorship in defense of liberty and human rights.
The anonymous support given to the cause of Tibet by #Op_Tibet is such an example. Exposing and challenging the Chinese regime. Targeting websites that channel disinformation and propaganda calculated to conceal the harrowing oppression suffered by Tibetans.
As a digital network dedicated to reporting and campaigning in support of Tibet we applaud those across Anonymous for their solidarity with the Tibetan struggle. We thank those who strike a blow against the terrorism of China’s government. Your determined activism is always greatly valued.
