  1. Good for them! A great statement from Anonymous there:

    “Your violations of the rights of LGBT people have disgusted us. ALL people have the right to live in dignity[,] free from the repression of someone else’s political and religious beliefs.”

  2. Good for them. I believe hacking is a good, non-violent, protest tool. I hope they can destroy as much of the Ugandan government internet as possible.

  3. If only I knew who Anonymous was I’d kiss them!!!

  4. Beautiful!!

  5. Brilliant!!

    Keep on pushing!

  6. “The corrupt fear us, the honest support us.”

    I hope Anonymous can continue to scale the walls that governments aren’t trying hard enough to bring down.

  7. More power to them!

    Whilst the action may be well intentioned, I’d be interested to know what lgbt Ugandans themselves think of this. I hope they don’t pay a big price for Anonymous’ actions.

    Gay people are feared enough over there. I’m not sure that this will bring them the acceptance and understanding that is so badly needed.

  9. Admit it… For a moment you wished you could hack, too. :D

  10. Thanks, Anonymous, great work! I’m sure everyone in the LGBT community is grateful!

  11. Vivat, Anonymous! I wish you weren’t anonymous for a moment so that I could congratulate you in person!

  12. Finally, a powerful blow to Museveni that serves as as warning to his mock-democracy.

    I hope the same happens to Ssempa.
