Just as the stories are starting to get interesting, the Tunisian authorities block Wikileaks and every other form of “leaks” that mention Tunisia based on cables from the whistleblower site.

Soon after the cables surfaced activists around the world started creating websites to tackle specific topics and countries, drawing from the plethora of information the cables provide. Tunisian activists didn’t waste time, Tunileaks was born.

So if you can read this post in Tunisia, it means Tunisian authorities haven’t yet gone on a Firewall frenzy. It means that Tunisian authorities haven’t resorted to putting up a cyber great-wall-of-China to block the world and its citizens from getting access to some of its dirty laundry.

Anonymous takes action for the people of Tunisia, since the Tunisian government has had a complete media blackout by blocking various websites on the internet (Facebook, Youtube, Google and other websites). Anonymous argues that the Tunisian government should let their people be free and not have the government decide what they can or can’t read.

A group of over 9,000 hacktivists gathered together online today to show support for the people of Tunisia. They want the people to know they are not alone and when the Tunisian government does not want to help, there’s people from Anonymous that will be at their side no matter what.

When the powerless are shut out of the media, we will make the media irrelevant
