Julian Assange

British Official Lashes Out at Anonymous

The hacker group targeted the UK government over its treatment of Julian Assange

|

Hacktivist cabal Anonymous has continued its attack on UK government websites in retaliation to the UK's treatment of Julian Assange, this time hitting former Wales and Northern Ireland Secretary, Peter Hain.

Hain told the BBC he feels Anonymous' actions resemble those he experienced in the "anti-apartheid and anti-fascist struggles." The MP participated in South Africa's anti-apartheid movement in the 1970s. "I have had these attacks for 40 years, mostly from racists and fascists."
