Anonymous Hacks Ugandan Government: Your Treatment Of Gays Is Disgusting

Two websites of the Ugandan government were hacked yesterday by Anonymous. One of the messages read:

“Today’s hack and deface of the Ugandan Prime Minister’s site was the latest in a long list of actions against the government and infrastructure of Uganda for crimes against LGBT people. “We will not stand by while LGBT Ugandans are victimized, abused and murdered by a ruthless and corrupt government. #TheEliteSociety and #Anonymous will continue to target Ugandan government sites and communications until the government of Uganda treats all people including LGBT [people] equally, with respect and dignity and immediately ends the arrest and harassment of LGBT [people]. “The government of Uganda will not stop us or LGBT people from standing up to their hatred and fighting against their abuses . . . Equal treatment for ALL people, or you can expect us again.”

A message on the website of Uganda’s prime minister read in part: “Your violations of the rights of LGBT people have disgusted us.”
