Anonymous, the well known internet activist group, hacked the website of the Greek Government’s Justice of Ministry this Friday morning, posting a video and a text calling for the government “To stop ACTA [Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement] in Greece” within a fortnight.
If this was not done, the message from Anonymous proceeds, “We will do Cyberwarfare by defacing 300 sites and all the media and websites”!!!
The hacking occurred around 5.20am and the Anonymous version was still online at around 9am, when it was taken down by the Ministry’s ‘administrators’ (haha)!
The funny thing’s that Police tweeted that its cybercrime unit is ‘following the electronic traces left by the hackers"!
The cool video all Greeks this morning witnessed shows a man in a Guy Fawkes mask reading the below statement. I mean, it was early in the morning, I was preparing myself to go to work, I hadn’t yet wet my lips with some coffee and suddenly I was not just seeing ‘V for Vendetta’, I was living in it!
We are living in times where History’s writing some SERIOUS pages everyday for the entire world and not only for
… I’m anxious, scared and at the same time excited and full of hope… We'll see in a few weeks... Greece

What is going on in your country is unacceptable. You were chosen by your people to act on behalf of them and express their wishes, but you have derogatorily failed. You have killed the most sacred element your country had and that is democracy. Democracy was given birth in your country but you have now killed it. What an irony! Your own people hate you and you stare at them doing nothing to prevent that. You have joined the IMF against your people's acquiescence. You have so introduced a new dictatorship upon your people's shoulders and allowed the bankers and the monarchs of the EU to enslave them both economically and politically. They pay their government's mistakes heavily and you made foreign people hate them for something they are not responsible for. What a shame! Police is taking advantage of its powers and attacks people who demonstrate in order for justice to be done. They demonstrate against you but you do not want their voices to be heard. You deprive them from their right of freedom of expression and of their right to live. Your arbitrary actions must be punished. By signing the ACTA bill you are going to deprive your people from further freedom and you are pushing them one step towards oppression. You ignored our warnings and now WE ARE IN CHARGE!
