Hacktivists of Anonymous and RedHack have published a statement urging the government of Turkey to put an end to censorship. A video version of the statement has been posted on Vimeo.They demand that the government end not only censorship, but also corruption and the use of violence during peaceful protests.
“We suffered from the mainstream media blackout about what is really happening in Turkey. This is a peaceful popular revolt. It is a movement that spans all levels and sectors of society. This is a movement that requires only freedom, justice, and democracy,” the hacktivists stated.
This is the second message sent by the hackers to the Turkish government in 2014. The first one came shortly after the country’s prosecutors charged 36 people who took part in the Gezi protests with terrorism.
