#Anonymous target Bahrain, US munitions manufacturer
Anonymous has affixed its digital crosshairs on Jamestown, PN based chemical munitions manufacturer Combined Tactical Systems on the anniversary of Bahrain’s protest movement that began one year ago.
“From the streets of Oakland to Tahrir Square, to Palestine, Greece, Bahrain and Syria, your sinister instruments of torture and brutality have been used by the vile swine enforcers of the rich ruling classes to repress our revolutionary movements,” read the statement.
The chemical munitions stamped with “Made in USA” connected violent crackdowns to US policy for many protesters.
