Anonymous online activists threaten Mexican drug cartel
The online collective Anonymous is making threats to a Mexican drug cartel over the alleged kidnapping of one of its activists in Veracruz.
"You made a huge mistake by taking one of us. Release him. And if anything happens to him, you (expletive) will always remember this upcoming November 5th," the group says in a Spanish-language YouTube video that shows buildings being blown up. November 5 is commonly referred to as Guy Fawkes day in honor of the Brit who tried to blow up parliament in the Gunpowder Plot of 1604. Fawkes was immortalized in the 2006 movie "V For Vendetta" about a freedom fighter who uses terrorist tactics against a totalitarian society.
"We demand his release," says a man wearing a suit and tie and the mask from "V for Vendetta" that has become the symbol for Anonymous. "We want the Army and the Navy to know that we are fed up with the criminal group Zetas, who have concentrated on kidnapping, stealing and blackmailing in different ways."
