32 people, some of them minors, have been put behind bars in Turkey for attacking government websites in response to the Turkish government’s plan to force people to filter their internet content.
The new filtering system is to go into effect on August 22 and will require internet users in Turkey to choose an internet filter that will restrict what content they can view on the web.
The hackers that attacked the website belong to the hacking group Anonymous who accuses the Turkish government of trying to suppress dissent and news and monitor its citizens activities on the web.

The hackers used a program that overwhelms a website with data slowing it and down and crashing it.
Many people across the country have taken to the streets to protest the internet filtering plan.
