This is only relevant if the media keep the pressure on to F1 for the next race and the one after that and the one after that otherwise it'll just slip back down the pages like all the other news stories that were flavour of the month a few weeks ago.

I expect F1 will drop Bahrain from the calender next season and put up a brick wall to the press and stop answering questions on it as the sport operates in it's little bubble and will protect each others interests I don't expect anyone to break rank and comment on it further.


That's a pretty good assessment, and I agree the keeping up the pressure and awareness campaign is important to the success of this protest. Here's hoping. But you're right, otherwise - and perhaps even so - it'll fall straight back down the news pages until it disappears from sight and the minds of the majority. We're all so desensitised to tragedy these days it's pretty disheartening, hell tragedy has become one of our favourite leisure pursuits eg some movies and video games etc, while it's real life for others. If only the people of Bahrain had the what must seem like the luxury of forgetting all about it.

I hope people around the world don't forget either, as we all know that mass popular opinion is the only way to change government's mind these days. Besides cold, hard cash of course.

Can't see F1 dropping the race unless it affects their profits or to a much lesser extent their public image tbh.

People are quick to criticise, and sometimes rightly so, so credit to Anon where it's due imo for supporting a worthy cause of stopping a madman killing people.

Anonymous takes down UK government websites in Assange attack

He's not the messiah; he's a very naughty boy


By Iain Thomson • The Register



Anonymous is claiming to have begun shutting down UK government websites in protest of the treatment of Julian Assange.

At around 8pm UT, the UK Justice Department website went down under a distributed denial of service attack. About 40 minutes later the Department of Work and Pensions website was also taken offline. Both operations were carried out under the name #OpFreeAssange, Anonymous Twitter feeds report.

#OpFreeAssange: TANGO DOWN! justice.gov.uk [500 Internal Server Error] [#Anonymous #WikiLeaks]
— Anonymous Operations (@Anon_Central) August 20, 2012


According to the latest attack data, the next target is the website for the Prime Minister's Number 10, and automated attack tools are being distributed that try to DDoS that site too.

Number 10 looks to be next on the list

All this activity is unlikely to change the government's attitude to Julian Assange, however. The police cordon around the Ecuadorian embassy is still in place and everyone going in and out is being checked. Downing a few websites is hardly an attack on infrastructure.

Yesterday Assange addressed supporters from the embassy, looking not a little like Graham Chapman in Life of Brian. Assange called on the US to end its "witch-hunt" of WikiLeaks and to free Bradley Manning, the source of the US diplomatic cables. Manning has spent over 800 days in solitary confinement since being arrested.

British Minister likens Anonymous to fascists and racists

Ecuador pres defends Assange bedroom antics, questions Pinochet irony


By Natalie Apostolou • The Register



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."

He added that Anonymous had got its targets wrong as he has been a supporter of Assange.

Hain used the attack to urge for cyber security, taking to Twitter where he wrote "after targeting of several sites in recent months latest incident is more evidence that UK needs to wake up to growing cyber security threat." Anonymous targeted the UK’s Ministry of Justice and the Home Office last week.

Meanwhile, Ecuador's President Rafael Correa said that the standoff regarding Assange as an “unfortunate incident over, after a grave diplomatic error by the British in which they said they would enter our embassy."

Ecuadorian officials have been outraged at British government threats of trying to seize Assange should he stray from the Ecuadorian embassy where he has been camped for two months.

The Washington-based Organization of American States also condemned Britain's threat with South American foreign ministers claiming Britain's stance is unacceptable.

Correa told the UK’s Sunday Times that the sex crime allegations made against Assange would not be deemed a crime in Latin America. "The crimes that Assange is accused of, they would not be crimes in 90 to 95 per cent of the planet," he said.

He also played the Pinochet card, questioning the British government’s contradictory approach to extradition, when it did not extradite former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet after his 1998 arrest in London.

Pinochet was wanted on an international arrest warrant issued by Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon, who is now featured on Assange's legal team.

"Britain supported Augusto Pinochet unconditionally. And they let him go, they didn't extradite him on humanitarian grounds, whereas they want to extradite Julian Assange for not using a condom, for the love of God,” Correa said.

Yet again I can't help but admiring Anonymous, about time those hate filled clowns got named, shamed, then smacked around by everyone's favourite hackers.

Seems the UK branch have had a busy week.

They've dropped the St Patriock's cross from the Union Jack.

Any reason for that?

Anonymous 'plonks' names, addresses of far-right EDL types on web

But who was able to write them down in the first place?


By John Leyden • The Register



Computer-hacking collective Anonymous‬ claims it has leaked online the personal details of the far-right English Defence League's members.

The hackers' list - the authenticity of which has not been independently verified - includes the names and addresses of more than 200 supposed members of the controversial protest organisation, as well as the mobile phone numbers of its senior figures.

The English Defence League (EDL), which opposes what it claims is the spread of Islamism in Blighty, staged a number of rallies in the wake of the horrific murder of Lee Rigby in south London by two thugs who had apparently converted to Islam.

The group's demonstrations were accompanied by counter-protests by anti-fascist campaigners, who oppose the EDL's Islamophobia and anti-immigrant agenda. In one reported case, a York mosque successfully quelled an EDL protest with tea, biscuits and football.

Now Anonymous UK has accused the EDL of taking "advantage of moments of fear and terror to spread hatred and animosity" in a YouTube message accompanying the leak; the activists also threatened the start of a broader campaign - codenamed Operation EDL - aimed at bringing down the group.

It's not clear where the leaked data came from but two hacktivist crews - ZHC (ZCompany Hacking Crew) from Pakistan and TeaMp0isoN - claim to have lifted membership lists after cracking into the EDL's website and forum, respectively. An EDL clothing web store has also been hacked, resulting in the leak of name and addresses of its customers, we're told.

There are several EDL-supporting pages on Facebook and one of main ones boasts more than 132,000 members. The leaked list reportedly focusses on cash donors to the EDL.

There are UK precedents for this type of leak. In 2008, a list of more than 10,000 British National Party members was splashed all over anti-fascist blogs. Months afterwards it emerged that two disgruntled party insiders, rather than hostile hackers, were responsible. At least some of the entries turned out to be inaccurate.

Leaks of supposed EDL members are not new either. Two years ago a school received hatemail targeting its caretaker after he was [url]wrongly identified[/url] as a fascist by English Defence League opponents, based on data stolen from an EDL site. The caretaker had donated £1 via PayPal after reading about "poppy burning or about the disruption of a military funeral" to "support our troops" without knowing that the funds were destined for the EDL.
