Anonymous’ Next Target - Anders Behring Breivik

Anonymous - the infamous hacktivist group has started a new campaign in order to humiliate Anders Behring Breivik, the perpetrator of the recent Norway massacre and his 1500 page manifesto.

Breivik, who claimed to be a “crusader” against Islam, had published a 1500 page online manifesto before executing the mass-murder at a youth camp near Oslo, which resulted in the death of 76 innocent lives. Most of Breivik’s victims were shot one-by-one in a very brutal manner.

Anonymous, who launched its operation against Breivik codenamed - “Operation UnManifest,” is appealing to the online community to come up with mock versions of the original. The campaign read, “Let Anders become a joke.”

Anonymous has urged everyone to “add stupid stuff, remove parts,” and post it online as and when possible thus making a fool out of the original manifesto.

The main motive behind the campaign is pretty simple - to turn Breivik into a “joke”. The group is also appealing for "a moment for the victims of his cruel attacks." “We all do not forgive murder. We all do not forget the victims,” Anonymous stated in its website.

As it turns out Breivik has pleaded not guilty for his gruesome actions.
