Events in America turned into cyber warfare.
Anonymous, who supports George Floyd protests and declares a ‘war’ to the Minneapolis Police Service (MPD), is thought to have carried out an attack that led to the collapse of the city’s police and municipal websites.
Demonstrations that began to protest the murder of unarmed black George Floyd by white police Derek Chauvin on Monday in Minneapolis, USA have turned into a nationwide revolt, and the deployment of the National Guard in many cities has not been stopped despite the prohibition of curfew, while Anonymous stepped in.
The international hackactivist group, which generally conducted cyber attacks on governments and companies to protest political events, made statements that supported the George Floyd protests and declared ‘war’ to the Minneapolis Police Service (MPD).
Parallel to this, the collapse of the websites of the city municipality that declared MPD and curfew were interpreted as the action of Anonymous in social media.
We are interventionist.
We are hacktivist.
We are journalist.
We are activist.
We are justice.
We are legion.

Previously, on May 28, a video related to Anonymous on Facebook was released on a video in which the person wearing the band’s trademark Guy Fawkes mask spoke with a modified voice.
The narrator, stating that “the people are hurt by the corruption and violence of an organization that promises to keep them safe,” stated that the police existed to realize the will of the criminal power classes.
“Unfortunately, we do not believe that you will fulfill the justice of your corrupt organization, so we will disclose the many crimes you committed to the world ,” the narrator continued:
“The monstrous murder of George Floyd is just the tip of the iceberg, which is a long list of serious cases where the police officers in your state were killed by the wrong actions.”
The video ended with the slogan of the group’s cyber attack, “Wait for us”.
