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.
What an excellent job from Students For Free Tibet-India who organized a rock concert to mark Tibetan Independence Day and raise awareness about Tibet’s just cause and the plight of Tibetans under illegal Chinese rule. Held in the Indian capital of New Delhi it was a hugely successful event with a number of high profile bands taking part.
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

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.
Many thanks to @Op_TibetHQ @AnonymousTibet
