To our dear “beloved” Lebanese Government,
We are RYV, short for Raise Your Voice, and we are simply a group of people who could not bare sitting in silence, watching all the crimes and injustice going on in Lebanon. We will not be silenced and brainwashed by your media. We will not stop until the Lebanese people mobilize, demand their rights, and earn them. We will not stop until the standards of living are raised to where they should be in Lebanon. We will not stop until this government’s self-made problems are solved, like the power shortage, water shortage, rise in gas prices and rise in food product prices. We are RYV, expect us to break the silence, whether in the streets or on the Internet.Silence is a crime.
Beautiful. The websites brought down include:
An impressive one is the Ministry of Electricity and Water, which is a dark, blacked-out website with an interactive bright circle similar to a flashlight’s illuminating the parts of the declaration via your cursors.
This isn’t the first time this has happened, and with gas prices at a solid 39,700 LBP, we Lebanese should be doing more than defacing the government’s websites! Perhaps with brilliant hacktivists like RYV, the government will think twice about trying to regulate the Internet. After all, we have someone now who can stop their websites if they dare stop ours. It’s times like these I wish I had learned some computer science =P. I for one support this movement and really hope it manifests into something on the ground. The 2013 elections are coming up, and I for one am planning to make it worthwhile…
