RedHack and Anonymous Team Up for November 5 Protests - #OpDirenis
November 5 is a symbolic date on which hacktivists and activists from all over the world plan on protesting and marching for various causes. RedHack and some members of the Anonymous movement have teamed up for such a protest in Turkey.
According to individuals involved in the campaign, dubbed Operation Direnis (“direnis” is the Turkish word for “resistance”), there will be no defacements or data leaks. Instead, the operation focuses on activism that doesn’t involve cybercrimes.
“Both Anonymous and RedHack are not solely based on hacks, leaks or the exposure of corrupt officials. The very core of both groups are based on activism, in where upon protesting and rebellion is an act of not chaos or anarchy, but of justice, truth and liberty,” the initiators of the operation stated.
“We are here with you today to warn you of an operation that will either go down in history, or it will be forever forged in the stones of rocks, deep in the shadow and forgotten,” they added.
“It is up to the people of Turkey to make one final push to declare both their civil, human and political rights.”
