The hacktivist organization Anonymous has responded quickly and surgically to the announcement that the Ugandan government will pass extreme anti-gay legislation as "a Christmas present" to its people.
They have already posted the usernames and passwords to key governmental agencies and threaten to release the names, addresses and contact number for all the central players in what has now come to be known as the 'Kill The Gays' bill in Uganda:
"The action follows a Nov. 12 warning message by Anonymous New Jersey, an arm of the hackers group. “If they actually do pass the bill id image that itd be free game on the entire Ugandan government,” the group told SFGN via Twitter. “No court would convict anyone of trying to save lives.” Anonymous New Jersey warned the Ugandan government in a previous Pastebin post to “expect us” if the bill passed. That post included the names and contact information of members of Uganda’s Committee on Legal and Parliamentary Affairs."
According to South Florida Gay News, last August, another person associated with Anonymous under the username DramaSett3r hacked the websites of the office of the prime minister of Uganda and the Uganda Justice Law and Order Sector in an operation dubbed #OpFuckAfrica:
“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 equally and with respect, dignity and immediately ends the arrest and harassment of LGBT.”
