Each passing day that Tibetans endure the brutal occupation of their land, and in exile voices are raised to oppose and expose China’s tyrannical and illegal presence in occupied Tibet, something extraordinary is taking place.
An action in support of the just cause of Tibetan national freedom which often goes unnoticed by many organizations and individuals who are active on Tibet.
Due to its covert nature it does not attract the attention of the wider Tibetan movement, but we have been very pleased and honored to report on such activism over recent years.
We refer of course to those anonymous activists who collaborate across ‘Operation Tibet’, ‘Team-Riddler’ and ‘The Creed‘. These individuals carry out amazing work in solidarity with Tibet and have inflicted much damage upon the digital infrastructure of the Chinese regime and its corrupted corporations.
As part of that action Anonymous launched a campaign targeting China’s mass-surveillance system, and have been quietly removing Chinese servers linked with that from the internet.
Today this incredible activism has witnessed yet another such server being taken offline, reported across Twitter. At the time of writing https://188.8.131.52/ is not accessible, a very welcome situation to all those supporting human rights and freedom.
We wish to express our respect and genuine appreciation to all those individuals who are engaged in those operations.
Anonymous activists at ‘Operation Tibet‘ issued August 22, 220 a video statement calling for action on Save The Children due to that organization’s continued silence concerning China’s mass abuse of Uyghur children. Many thanks to @AnonymousTibet for sharing news 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.
Our crew over on Twitter has today been sent a video statement from the Anonymous project called ‘Operation Tibet’. It calls upon those taking part in the global Million Mask March on November 5 to remember Tibet and also highlights China’s disturbing policy of forcing Uyghur children from their families and detaining them in brainwashing centers. Many thanks to @tibettruth and @AnonymousTibet @Project_Tibet for news on this.
We are just seeing on Twitter reports from Anonymous activists #Op_Tibet of a cyber attack against a Chinese regime website located in occupied Tibet. According to a number of tweets the servers of a site for a propaganda college have earlier this morning been hacked and disabled. As we write it’s presently offline, no doubt their admin will be trying to restore. Even if successful however it’s another vulnerability exposed and as we’ve witnessed with other sites targeted by Anonymous in the past it will in all likelihood be subjected to further strikes. This latest offensive has been linked with recent events at University of Toronto when a Tibetan, Ms Chemi Lhamo on election as student leader was barraged by by Chinese trolls in an organized campaign of hatred and disinformation. Thanks to our twitter team @tibettruth and special shoutout to @AnonymousTibet and @anonymzmeduza
The action on Tibet this Tibetan Independence Day has been white hot.
Our crew over on Twitter have been reporting on the Anonymous strikes against Chinese government sites.
Working in support of ‘Operation Tibet’ activists called #Op_Tibet #blackhat_global and #teamriddler caused havoc to many sites run by China’s regime. Hundreds were hacked as reported by #blackhat_global with sensitive data exposed and vulnerable to further attacks. Others targets have been crashed and taken offline, cutting off the oxygen to the propaganda and lies such sites push.
It’s been truly amazing to see such solidarity, particularly on a day of such importance in the Tibetan calendar, when Tibet’s independence is honored and remembered.
We want to pay serious credit to @tibettruth for their tireless efforts in channeling news and networking. Special thanks and total respect to all those Anonymous activists within #Op_Tibet #teamriddler and #blackhat_global for donating your skills, support and commitment in your collective actions.
Lastly please put your hands together for the following @AnonymousTibet @anonriddler @teamriddler @_The_Puni_sher_ @Obrigadatialeni
Earlier we were informed by our team on Twitter that ‘Operation Tibet’ was today launched by Anonymous activists, reports from @AnonymousTibet and @anonriddler at that time referenced two Chinese regime websites which had been attacked and taken offline.
Since then we’ve read that a further four sites run by the Chinese government have been hacked and crashed, these are being reported on our Facebook and Twitter pages. So do visit @digitalactivism (Facebook) and @tibettruth (Twitter) for latest updates.
There will no doubt be further actions and these will be posted across our social-media channels once confirmed. Until then major appreciation to all those within #teamriddler #blackhat_global #Op_Tibet for such active solidarity, especially on Tibetan Independence Day!
With Tibetan Independence Day arriving tomorrow along with the launch of Anonymous action in support of Tibet news just dropped in from our Twitter team about a strike against a Chinese government website by ‘Operation Tibet’. Information posted on social media reveals the action was taken in response to an attempted cyber attack which was made against our email account./. Genuine thanks to @tibettruth and @_The_Puni_sher_ for sharing news on this
Clearly an action by China’s digital division it exploits a mailing list run by the exiled Tibetan Administration, emailing a document, which on opening delivers a Remote Action Trojan (RAT), A malware designed to steal files, system and personal data, conduct surveilliance and terminating or starting processes.
Such covert strikes have been going on for some years now, we’re not affected by this latest enemy action, as we do not subscribe to the list in question. In addition we run security measures on a daily basis to maintain our online operations.
