The “MalEducados” cyber-operation follows several weeks of student protests in Chile, offering them online support for their cause.  Anonymous, who is behind the cyber-operation, is calling for global hacker support tomorrow at 10 am. to support students protesting for better access to education.  They have been protesting for several months. 

Anonymous has announced via the facebook profile of “Operation Storm of the South,” a profile that had been used in the past to publish announcements, and call for support.

“The “MalEducados” operation is born as a consequence of the absolute ineptitude of the Latin American governments to watch over the fundamental human right to an education and the free access to knowledge,” the organization wrote.

“We wish to adhere to the protests of Chilean students for a quality and free education. The Chilean government can’t continue allowing and much less encouraging the profiting from the people’s education.”

It is in this context that Anonymous has called upon hackers in Chile, Latin América and the entire world to log into their IRC chat tomorrow at 10am, for more information on the steps to follow, and the targets that they will be boycotting.
