The hacker group Anonymous is stepping into the fight over a contaminated soil dump on Shawnigan Lake
It posted a warning message on its Operation Green Rights website today
It claims the provincial government and in particular, the Ministry of Environment, seems to have a willful disregard for it’s duties to protect the environmental interests of British Columbians.
Protesters who live on the lake have been fighting to overturn a permit that allows dumping of contaminated soil on a site close to the source of their drinking water.
Anonymous warns in the message that those companies who choose to remain involved “should expect us.”
Anonymous is a decentralized network of activists and hacktivists, best known for distributed denial of service attacks on government, corporate, and other websites
