“STOP these slaughters IMMEDIATELY, or get ready to face the extent of our wrath.”

That was the online warning that the Japanese government received from Anonymous, a group of “hacktivists” (hacker-activists) who primarily hack websites to bring about social change. The group has given this warning to government officials in Japan to put an end to dolphin slaughter (a gruesome practice that was highlighted in the 2009 documentary, “The Cove”).

Anonymous has 22 Japanese websites on their hit list, including those of the prime minister’s office, Taji, Wakayama Prefecture, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, and the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.

Some of Anonymous’ past hacktivism has targeted the websites of large corporations (such as PayPal and Sony), the Westboro Baptist Church, websites that host child pornography, and many different government sites from around the world.
