Hacktivism is based on ideologies: free flow of information, transparency or how you wanna call it. Hacktivism is NOT damaging. It is a way to expose the lies. Thats the problem . . . problem for politicians, governments, banks, corporations etc. They can not accept And that’s why they are treating hacktivists like terrorists.

Hacktivists are not terrorists.
