# Those which stamped Bayero, Ebonyi, Madonna, F U T A, Novena university, GIFMIS Gov
# Every offence should have a fair punishment. People have committed greater offences and nothing was done to them. Police officers collecting bribes only confirms how corrupt our society has become. It is also a sign of a failed government.If these officers are well remunerated, I don’t see any reason why they would resort to road-side extortion.

Anonymous Turkey ►Stop Censorship! from @AnonymousVideo on Vimeo.

 Transcript
"A message from Anonymous and RedHack.
Greetings World.
Government of Turkey, on many occasions Anonymous and RedHack have asked that you change your attitude towards leadership and serve our country rather than control it, that you maintain the rights and freedoms of the citizens.
We demand that the Government of Turkey,
put an immediate end to censorship,
put an immediate end to corruption,
and stop the use of force and violence against peaceful demonstrators.
We suffered from the mainstream media blackout about what is really happening in Turkey. This is a peaceful popular revolt. It is a movement that spans all levels and sectors of society. This is a movement that requires only freedom, justice, and democracy.
We cannot stand idly while these injustices are being done.
Know that we stand together and united to fight against this oppression.
We Are Anonymous.
We Are Legion.
We Do Not Forgive.
We Do Not Forget.
Government of Turkey, it is too late to EXPECT US!

We are Anonymous, we are Team Defiant. We have been watching you, and we do not agree with the cruel punishment you're allowing to happen inside of your country. The fact that you allow five black rhinos to be hunted each year as part of a conservation program is preposterous, not to mention you believe your own lie that it'll "gear to boost the long-term survival of the species, Bullshit.
You are promoting a hunt that is for your own good, not for the welfare of the animal, the black rhino species that you are not considering.
So let us get this right.. You're selling permits to hunt an ENDANGERED SPECIES, from anywhere between $250,000 and $1 million??
But yet its for the RHINOS? Please explain how these animals benefit from YOUR wealth?
Here are some things you can ponder about when alone, and think hard because this my friends is the inevitable.
1. How much more can your country handle before it turns on you?
2. Will Team Defiant release all your personal information and data stored in your servers?
3. How will you get online commerce when none of your website are working properly?

We are a collective of Anonymous.
We are Team Defiant.
I am Payback Panda,
This is Operation Fun Kill.
We're the ones in the shadows,
you can not stop, what you can not see.
