- A group called Duterte Cyber Warriors (DCW) have called for the surveillance of anti-Marcos advocates on social media
Many Filipino Facebook users have reported being locked out of their accounts.
According to one FB user, a certain group called Duterte Cyber Warriors (DCW) has called for the surveillance of users who are allegedly trying to influence young people to believe in ideas that are in opposition to the Marcos regime.
One Facebook user, Patricia Bonife, said that those who were first hit by this lock out are students of Ateneo de Manila University.
Ateneo is among the initial schools who opposed the burial of Marcos.
“I've seen a lot of people tweeting about it too. We're still not sure if this DCW device is behind it, and it's hard to prove if ever, but the sheer number is just alarming,” said Bonife who also graduated from the said Ivy League school.
Another user, Bianca Rodriguez, also from ADMU, said that she received an alert which states that there were a couple of suspicious log-in attempts on her account.
Upon checking, she was quite perplexed that logins were detected from Bulacan and Valenzuel when in fact, she’s from QC and her boyfriend is also from Manila.
Another user, Jan-Daniel Belmonte said that at least 152 victims were reported.
A November 19 FB post of “Dr. Salim McDoom” stated, “Nagsisimula na po ang Oplang Cyber Tokhang gamit ito. Pero kelangan pa po namin ng madami pang field operatives lalo na sa Makati area.”
(We are beginning our Oplan Cyber Tokhang using this. But we need many field operatives, especially in the Makati area.)
Like the Marcos protesters, this woman is also airing out her complaints about her government. This time around, it's specifically about their roads.
