Gov’t websites defaced; hackers urge Filipinos to join protest
MANILA, Philippines—A hacktivist group defaced various government websites Monday calling Filipinos to stand up against “government corruption and tyranny.”

“Together, we must stand tall and remind this world what it has forgotten; that fairness, justice, and freedom are not mere words.

The hacker group also urged the public to join the November 5 global “Million Mask March” in Quezon City.
The group earlier this year hacked 195 Chinese websites in response to China’s claim on disputed territories in the South China Sea.
