A very interesting video is making its rounds on Belize social media. Over the last 24 hours alone, since it was posted, the video has been viewed more than 3,700 times. That’s quite a feat for Belize’s small online population. The video which is found on you tube and posted to face book is titled “Anonymous’ Message to Belize.”
“Anonymous” is an internationally recognized network of activists and hackers. The group which appeared in 2003 became known for well publicized publicity stunts and attacks on government, religious, and corporate websites. They have targeted corporations such as Mastercard and Visa in cyber attacks. The video claims that they have been in Belize monitoring the government of Belize over the last three years.
The insignia, the design, the mask, and overdramatic delivery are typical of Anonymous, however, we cannot verify whether or not the video itself is actually from the group Anonymous or if it is the work of a copy cat or simply a hoax. Only time will tell.
