A YouTube video was put up by someone claiming to be part of the international hacker group “Anonymous”. The group threatens to bring down key infrastructure in Singapore in a show of protest against the Government’s new licensing rules imposed on websites here.
The video was posted on Oct 29 and has been removed by the uploader. The message was delivered by a man with a scrambled voice and used an image of Guy Fawkes with his trademark anonymity mask, saying: “We demand you reconsider the regulations of your framework or we will be forced to go to war with you.”
It ended with the message: “Remember, remember. The fifth of November”, a famous line from Fawkes who threatened to blow the parliament building in England on November 5, 1605.
The video also urged Singaporeans to join the protest by dressing in black and red on November 5 and to black out their Facebook profile pictures for a day.
Update: The video has resurfaced at this facebook link.
