Anonymous Hackers Pick Up Litter in Protest

When Japan’s parliament enacted stiffer, prison-worthy copyright laws to stop people from downloading copyrighted music and movies, the hacker group Anonymous decided to protest. Their form of protest? Picking up trash.

When Japan’s parliament enacted stiffer, prison-worthy copyright laws to stop people from downloading copyrighted music and movies, the hacker group Anonymous decided to protest. Their form of protest?  Picking up trash.

According to the China Post, “80 masked people, calling themselves allies of the global hacker group Anonymous, picked up litter in Tokyo Saturday in a novel protest against Japan’s tougher laws against illegal downloads.”

The group made a formal statement to explain their positive approach to protesting.

“We prefer constructive and productive solutions. We want to make our fellow citizens aware of the problem with a productive message.”

“The cleaning service has amused overseas Anonymous allies as something unique to the Japanese,” said another spokesman. “We want to continue stating our case on the net.”
