‘Operation Free Assange’: Anonymous take down Interpol website

27 August, 2012



Hactivist group Anonymous claims to have taken down the websites of Interpol and a British police force as part of a campaign calling for the freedom of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Several Twitter accounts associated with the loose-knit Anonymous collective have announced that the website of International Criminal Police Organization was taken down. The site was unavailable as of 9:18 pm GMT on Sunday but resumed functioning soon after.

The hackers also claim to have taken down the website of the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), a UK police unit responsible for operations against serious and organized crime.

Several British governmental websites, including the Ministry of Justice, have been attacked by hacktivists in retaliation for Britain’s handling of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Under the campaign, which was branded “#OpFreeAssange,” Anonymous undertook a mission to take down and, the official site of the British Prime Minister’s Office. The websites are now operating normally once again.

Several Twitter accounts associated with the loose-knit Anonymous collective have acknowledged that the UK Ministry of Justice and the PM Office’s websites had been targeted with a distributed denial-of-service, or DDoS, attack.

“#OpFreeAssange: TANGO DOWN! [500 Internal Server Error] [#Anonymous #WikiLeaks],” reads one tweet sent from the @Anon_Central Twitter account.

The hackers also claim to have taken down the website of another British government department – the Department of Work and Pensions. “Gov. of UK Expect Us!” reads a related tweet by Anonymous.

Assange, the founder and editor of whistleblower website WikiLeaks, has been ordered by Swedish authorities to be extradited from the UK where he had been under house arrest. Two women from Sweden have accused Assange of sex crimes, although he has yet to be charged.

Massive Public Protests Spur France to Ban Plantings of Monsanto’s GMO Corn

Friday, 30 March 2012

‘On the heels of ongoing, massive protests against genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), French agricultural officials have announced that plantings of Monsanto’s MON810 GM corn, which contains built-in Bt toxin, will no longer be permitted within France. Reports explain that the moratorium is only temporary, but since there is no indication that opposition to the “Frankencorn” will cease anytime soon, the ban could last indefinitely.

Last November, French authorities lifted a longtime ban that prohibited French farmers from planting MON810, a move that spurred nationwide backlash and protest. But less than six months later, the voices of the people have spoken so loudly that the ban has now been reinstated as a “precautionary measure” in order to “protect the environment.”‘

‘Amid mass US protests against Monsanto in mid-March, France imposed a temporary moratorium on the planting of Monsanto’s genetically modified corn, MON810.

“Due to the proximity of the planting season,” said Agriculture Minister Bruno Le Maire along with Francois Fillon, Minister for Ecology and Sustainable Development, in a press release on Friday, authorities “decided to take a precautionary measure to temporarily prohibit the cultivation of maize MON810 on the national territory to protect the environment.” All prior plantings of MON810, trade name YieldGard, become illegal on March 20.’

Canadians to Protest Against Royal Visit

Sunday, 03 July 2011 08:32

‘Around 300 fans of the separatist Quebec Resistance Network are expected to demonstrate outside City Hall when the royal couple gives a visit to the capital as part of their Canadian tour, group member Julien Gaudreau revealed.

Gaudreau claimed that the Resistance Network would “commit pacifist acts of civil disobedience” on July 3, to express their opposition against the amount of money being paid by the Canadian taxpayers for the event.

He stressed that the majority of Quebecers have not been in favor of the British Monarchy, accusing the federal government of carrying out a “propaganda campaign” to encourage positive attitudes among the Canadians right before the royal visit.’
