The Anons of the IRC are launching attacks to raise awareness over the lack of child labor laws these countries as well as human trafficking violations. Some are protesting to bring awareness to the corruption disproportion of resources governments have while their people suffer in poverty. Others are pleading for the world to intervene and bring an end ethnic cleansing and government sanctioned genocide in some areas.
