PrivateX claim the hack affiliated with Anonymous OccupyPhilippines, where they posted it first in their page. That was around 3, early morning.
That affected websites were the following:
- The official website of Metropolitan Manila Development Authority – mmda.gov.ph

The reason of the hack is clearly stated in their deface page, Protection of the Filipino rights to Freedom of Expression. The hackers are pointing out the 1987 Philippine Constitution, Article III, Section 4 that states, “No law shall be passed abridging the freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press, or the right of the people to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.”. They are saying that the Cyber Crime Law that is under TRO for now, violates the 1987 Philippine Constitution.
Their full message reads,
For many years, we have spent speaking what we truly feel; what we truly felt. NO HOLDS BARRED is the past game. We speak, the government hears. They speak, we are all ears. 1987 Philippine Constitution. Article III, Section 4 states that “NO LAW SHALL BE PASSED ABRIDGING the freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances. ” What happened to the law? Are all laws meant to be broken? Are they made to fool people, deprive them of their rights in exchange of what we believe as “Heavens for Politicians”? Some say we are against the law because it would hinder our “criminal activities”, but WE do not oppose the said law in any way, if its for the greater good. We are the voice of the weak, the sense of the numb, we are bonded by cause and purpose, We are ANONYMOUS, We are LEGION, We do not FORGIVE, We do not FORGET, Goverment of the Philippines, it’s too late to EXPECT US.
