On the eve of a hearing regarding the new cyber crime laws in Philippines, the Anonymous hackers opposing the law defaced some of the major sites of the government.
The defaced sites includes:
The hackers left their deface page along with a message on all the hacked website, according to the message:
“Protect our Right to
Freedom of Expression!
For many years, we have spent speaking what we truly feel; what we truly felt.
NO HOLDS BARRED is the past game. We speak, the government hears. They speak, we are all ears.
1987 Philippine Constitution. Article III, Section 4 states that “NO LAW SHALL BE PASSED ABRIDGING the freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.”
What happened to the law? Are all laws meant to be broken? Are they made to fool people, deprive them of their rights in exchange of what we believe as “Heavens for Politicians”? Some say we are against the law because it would hinder our “criminal activities”, but WE do not oppose the said law in any way, if its for the greater good.
We are the voice of the weak, the sense of the numb, we are bonded by cause and purpose, We are ANONYMOUS, We are LEGION, We do not FORGIVE, We do not FORGET, Government of the Philippines, it’s too late to EXPECT US.”
Twitter is another place where the protesters started a new hash tag by the name of #NoToCybercrimeLaw a lot law’s foes has been involved in this particular protest.
On Tuesday a hearing is scheduled at Supreme Court for the implementation of these laws, the president of Philippine last September signed a into these laws. But, since then there has been massive protest against these laws from all around. Hackers that time also hacked some government websites to show their protest.
At the time of publishing this article, two of the sites were still defaced and others were still displaying deface page left by the hackers.
