With just a few days until Tibetan Independence Day activists from Operation Tibet, the hacktivist group, have issued a video statement further exposing Chinese mass-surveillance of Tibetans and pledging to take action on February 13 (the date on which Tibet’s independence was formally re-stated and declared by the 13th Dalai Lama). It’s a date of considerable importance to Tibetans and a timely occasion for showing solidarity with the just struggle for Tibetan national freedom. Thanks to our Twitter crew for news on this and to @AnonymousTibet for sharing the video link.

Anonymous hacktivists #Op_Tibet and #teamriddler have posted news across Twitter of an attack this morning on a Chinese corporation server that’s deeply involved with mass-surveillance. This latest action is part of ongoing strikes against Chinese digital infrastructures and regime websites, taken in solidarity with the cause of Tibet’s national freedom. At the time this post was published the server was offline. Our thanks to @AnonymousTibet for the heads-up on this and to all those who made this happen.

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://22.214.171.124/ 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.

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

It’s awesome to see the growing support from Anonymous activists for Tibet’s cause, that such folk are prepared to invest their expertise and time to oppose the censorship and tyranny of China’s regime deserves much respect and appreciation. Especially when considering that such action is regarded as a form of criminality, placing any who engage in digital hacking with a risk of being charged and jailed.
Given that reality we applaud all those who are taking part in ‘Operation Tibet’ on February 13, your solidarity on Tibetan Independence Day with the just cause of Tibetan national freedom and advocacy of human rights for the people of Tibet is greatly welcomed.
Our team on Twitter are hearing that cyber attacks originating in China have been attempted against the planned Anonymous operation scheduled to take place on February 13, Tibetan Independence Day. The action being prepared by activist collectives #Op_Tibet #TeamRiddler and #blackhat_global has obviously rattled the Chinese authorities and their many online trolls.

So we understand the attack was unsuccessful due to the diligence, expertise and security measures in place by #blackhat_global. As the day approaches further strikes can be expected from hackers in the service of China’s regime.

Given previous operations run by Anonymous in support of Tibet however we are confident that Chinese government websites will again be targeted and taken offline.
Our sincere appreciation for news on this to @AnonymousTibet @_Roy_Rogers0
Thanks to our Twitter crew @tibettruth we are seeing some awesome action from Anonymous as part of their #Op_Tibet campaign. This week alone a number of Chinese government sites have been taken offline and as we compose this post today, another two have been targeted.
We want to take a few moments here to express our sincere appreciation to all those who are involved in these ongoing actions, the active solidarity show by Anonymous to the just cause of Tibetan national freedom is greatly welcomed.
Remember also that those individuals are devoting their time and specialized skills, removing websites that promote the deceptions and propaganda of China’s regime. Such activism comes with the risk of arrest and prosecution, since despite the clear ethical motivation of Anonymous in supporting Tibet, their digital techniques are regarded as criminal. Crazy right? That the same governments, themselves committing crimes against humanity should criminalize those who are opposing censorship, human rights abuse and the denial-of-freedom!
Our respect to those who know who they are in your support for Tibet, the dedication and expertise you devote is a major assist in exposing and opposing China’s totalitarian tyranny. We wish the upcoming Million Mask March November 5 every success in advancing human rights, justice and equality

Anonymous activists have been busy the past few days ahead of an action they are calling #OpGoldFKR, which launches April 1 and seeks to target Chinese mining corporations, whose presence in occupied Tibet is causing serious environmental damage and poisoning Tibetans. Today however a number of Chinese government websites have been hacked and taken offline by hacktivists operating under the title #TheDragonsDen #blackhat_global #TheCreed. Targets have included government, engineering sites and just announced on Twitter a bio-medical research center website was breached and its data results leaked.
