What an incredible few days leading up to Tibetan Independence Day on February 13. The action taken by Anonymous activists was amazing in it’s scope and ingenuity, how do we know this? Well our Twitter crew @tibettruth have been working 24/7 researching and reporting on developments and news regarding ‘Operation Tibet’.

Their video channel had made clear that Chinese government sites and high-tech corporations that research, manufacture and service mass-surveillance, facial recognition and bio-metric data processing systems would be targeted.

Boy did they deliver! Chinese CCTV cameras were hacked and exposed across the internet. Thousands of computers and servers across China got infected with MIRAI malware, allowing remote control in further attacks. Leading corporations such as Alibaba, Tencent, and China Telecom had their servers hacked and taken offline. Meanwhile China’s government and specific companies like WiseWeb found their websites crashed by a series of cyber attacks.

Does this matter to China’s regime you may wonder? You betcha, we’ve known for years just how sensitive and concerned the Chinese authorities are to any form of opposition or exposure. But don’t take our word. Check out what Mr Chan Si Cheng (the Director Macau’s IT and Telecommunications Coordination Department of the Judiciary Police) said about ‘Operation Tibet’ in a February 11 article in the Macau News said about ‘Operation Tibet’ in a February 11 article in the Macau News Interestingly that report stated that the Macau authorities had been warned about the planned cyber activism by the China Information Technology Security Evaluation Centre (CNITSEC). An authorized arm of the Chinese regime.

We’d also received intelligence that accounts across Twitter that were reporting on ‘Operation Tibet’ were being targeted by fake accounts run by Chinese political trolls, no doubt very eager to monitor the nature and flow of information. So, yes China’s tyrannical government was worried and actively monitoring events, but it could not stop the damage, delay and cost inflicted by anonymous activists. Nor could it prevent the discussion and reportage surrounding the various actions taken, which spread across social media.

On that we must give a shout-out to @tibettruth who did awesome work, and special mention also to @AnonymousTibet (not the phony Facebook account) for publishing such inventive, informative and powerful video content on ‘Operation Tibet’. We hear that Twitter made the wrong move yesterday by temporarily locking-down their account, timing which some may consider more than mere coincidence. Respect and credit also to @JohnDoe14314155 @anonriddler @project_tibet @teamriddler for their solidarity with Tibet’s just cause and sharing valuable news and images.

At the heart of all this digital activism is a genuine concern for the plight of Tibet, its people and culture under the asphyxiating control of Chinese rule. We thank all those anonymous individuals who offered their expertise, skills and resources in support of Tibetan Independence Day. It has been a remarkable expression of solidarity that’s impacted upon China’s regime and its corrupt corporations.

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.

Anonymous activists’ project, ‘Operation Tibet’ (supported by #blackhat_global #teamriddler and #thecreed) today released a video statement ahead of Tibetan Independence Day in which they announced that Chinese government and corporation websites linked with mass surveillance technology are to be targeted on February 13.

The video reports on the nature and extent of how systems such as facial recognition are used as another layer of oppression against the Tibetan people, intruding and recording their every move.

We are extremely grateful to all those involved with this action and offer our genuine appreciation for such active solidarity.

Shoutout to our Twitter crew @tibettruth for news on this and to @AnonymousTibet for sharing this video.

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.
