Anonymous Italia has seemingly come out in support of Extinction Rebellion in the country, releasing data from 6 organisations from across Italy in conjunction with both a press release and video.
Released under the banner of “Operation Green Rights” (#OpGeenRights), the data released includes material from the Conference of Regional Parliaments, the Council for Agricultural Research and Analysis of The Agricultural Economy and the Provincial College of Agricultural Technicians and Technicians Graduates.
In an unusual move, the data release was coupled with both the above video and a full statement, the hacking collective declaring their support for Extinction Rebellion’s aims and goals.
“Consider the following truths:
We face our darkest hour.
Humanity is threatened by an unprecedented event in history. If we do not address the situation immediately, we will be catapulted into the further destruction of everything that is important to us: this nation, the people who live there, the ecosystems in which we live and the future of generations to come.
The message from scientists is clear: we are in the sixth mass extinction and in the absence of rapid and determined action we face the catastrophe.
Everywhere in the world, we are witnessing the annihilation of biodiversity. The seas are poisoned, their acidity is on the rise, and so also the raising of the water. The floods and desertification make uninhabitable large land areas, causing mass migration.
Our air is so toxic that were breaking their own laws. This air is bad for children even before their birth and causes the death of tens of thousands of people. The drastic climate imbalance is already before our eyes. There will be other fires, unexpected abnormal storms, an incalculable increase of unprecedented famines and droughts that will lead to the depletion of food supplies and drinking water.
No being [that is] endowed with reason, ethical conscience or moral/spiritual beliefs, can continue to ignore, deny, or leave unanswered the ecological crisis that is affecting every nation and the planet as a whole, along with its wildlife.
Recalling these values, and looking at the truth indicated by overwhelming scientific evidence, we declare that it is our duty to act in the name of security and well-being of our children, our communities and the future of the planet. “Anonymous Italia
