Scenes from the Tibetan March 10th, 2015 Protest Against Chinese Communist Party at SF City Hall

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

Attended by Nancy Pelosi, Ross Mirkarimi and John Avalos.

(In years past, protests like these have taken place at the Chinese Consulate at Geary and Laguna. I wonder how Nancy Pelosi’s cell phone(s) would have done against a Man In The Middle (MITM) hack attack coming from inside the consulate, which of course is the locus of spycraft in Northern California. My GMail got hacked several hours after I checked out a Tibetan protest while carrying a Galaxy S1 years ago – this was the only time Google has ever contacted me about its concerns over possible hacking. Coincidence or not, I take out the battery of my new(er) phone when I’m walking about the area, which isn’t all that much these days, since, you know, there are fewer protests there these days. Even at this one yesterday, I was just passing through and happened to notice all the commotion. Needless to say, this kind of thing is very off-message for area “friends” of the Consulate, such as Ed Lee and the powerful and influential Rose Pak.)

Via Bluoz comes that news that, a site run by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), has just been hacked by Anonymous, a group of people opposed to BARTs cell phone shutdown policy.


BART saw this coming, in a way:

“Update on potential interruption to BART’s website and other online services

BART’s online services including web, mobile webemail and SMS are used by nearly 2 million customers every month. We’re disappointed to announce that the BART website may be subject to an online attack today, Sunday August 14, between noon and 6 pm, because this action will directly affect those customers who depend upon our site, as well as the developers who use BART’s open data services to serve BART customers.

We’re doing what we can to defend against any attack on the BART website. BART’s website infrastructure is wholly separate from any computer network involved in the operation of BART service. In the event that is not available or working as you’d expect, we encourage you to use the website for alternative transit information.

And guess what, BART, you’ll have more things to deal with until Monday evening:

#OpBART has started… For the next 35 hours @SFBART well feel the wrath of #Anonymous

All the deets are right here:

“Sooner or later the people in this country gotta realize the government
does not give a fuck about them. The government doesn’t care about you, or your children,
or your rights, or your welfare, or your safety, it simply doesn’t give a fuck about you.
It’s interested in its own power, that’s the only thing, keeping it and expanding it wherever possible.”

Dear Bay Area Rapid Transit, The People and All Government Agencies,

We are Anonymous, we are your citizens, we are the people, WE DO NOT TOLERATE OPPRESSION FROM ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY.
BART has proved multiple times that they have no problem exploiting and abusing the people.
First they displayed this by the two recent killings by BART police. Under no circumstance, unless police are shot at,
make police killings acceptable. Non-lethal weapons were available to use during both incidents,
providing even that was necessary, but instead they shot to kill. Next they violated the people’s right to assembly and prevented
other bystanders from using emergency services by blocking cell phone signals in order to stop a protest against the BART police murders.
Lastly, they set up this website called and they stored their members information with virtually no security.
The data was stored and easily obtainable via basic sqli. Any 8 year old with a internet connection
could have done what we did to find it. On top of that none of the info, including the passwords,
was encrypted. It is obvious BART does no give a fuck about its customers, funders and tax payers,THE PEOPLE.

The governments and government agencies of the world are becoming tyrannical and oppressive,
and the people are responding and will not take your shit for much longer. The people will fight
this oppression with protests, demonstrations, riots, hacking, ddos, online attacks and by any other means.
We will not allow ourselves to be killed, exploited, or get shitted on. From the streets of Chile,
England, Portland, San Francisco, Oakland, the people are rising up and we will support each other and
stand in solidarity against any injustice. Worldwide resistance is happening,
we will participate in solidarity against oppression. SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON.

Thus below we are releasing the User Info Database of, to show that BART doesn’t give a shit about
it’s customers and riders and to show that the people will not allow you to kill us and censor us. This is
but the one of many actions to come. We apologize to any citizen that has his information published, but
you should go to BART and ask them why your information wasn’t secure with them. Also do not worry,
probably the only information that will be abused from this database is that of BART employees.

Greetz to TeaMp0ison, lulzsec, anti-sec, anarchists, anon, bay of rage, No Justice, No BART, UA in the bay,
your anon news, anonymous irc.”
