TORONTO – Toronto's Occupy movement might get an “Anonymous” support from city if officials interfere with the month-long demonstration.
In a video released on YouTube, the the hacker group Anonymous warns to begin a cyber attack on the city if officials hinder with the month-long demonstration.
The video says Toronto will be “removed from the Internet” unless the officials assure to leave the protesters alone.
“You have said that by next week the occupiers shall be removed. And we say by next week if you do not change your mind, you shall be removed from the Internet,” proclaims the video’s computer-generated voice, distinctive of messages from the hacker group.
Despite an ultimatum from “Anonymous”; Toronto’s Mayor Rob Ford still wants the Occupy Toronto protesters out of St. James and has asked the occupiers to dismantle their tent city in the Park.
The mayor’s office issued a statement confirming its situation: “The mayor and city manager have been very clear over the past week. It's time this came to a peaceful conclusion.”
