Anonymous hacktivists have today reported on Twitter another attack against a Chinese government website, this time ‘Operation Tibet’ has targeted a regional police website which seems to have been taken offline. This latest strike coincides with the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping and also follows other actions this week in which ‘Anonymous’ issued statements supporting the ongoing hunger-strike by members of the Tibetan Youth Congress.
As the three Tibetan hunger-strikers continue their painful and courageous action demanding action from the United Nations they have received support today from an Anonymous hacking collective called ‘Operation Tibet’. News posted on Twitter reports that Chinese government websites are today being targeted to show solidarity with the hunger-strike. At the time of this posting three such targets had been reported as taken offline.
