A popular Twitter account linked to the hacktivist collective called for countries and individuals to ‘boycott, divest and sanction’ the U.S. – with the hashtag #BDStheUS. Anonymous called for American workers to strike, and for other countries to boycott U.S. goods.
The collective previously published a guide to how to hack the Android phone used by Donald Trump – and threatened to publish supposed ‘inside info’ on Trump’s Russian links.
In a statement posted online, Anonymous said, ‘We call on you, the citizens of the United States, to organize rolling work strikes nation-wide. Remove your labour from the pockets of the tyrants.

As citizens of the world we must unite against tyranny wherever it emerges and challenge it.
‘As Trump reveals himself to be a danger not just for the U.S. but the rest of the international community it is our right to protect and defend ourselves from the madness of rogue entity with no regard for international law, human rights, or common decency.
Anonymous’s statement says, ‘Greetings Citizens of the World, We are Anonymous
This is an open call to establish travel bans on United States citizens, boycott US made products, divest of US or Trump related business interests, and apply sanctions on the Trump regime and all of its associates. Until the danger the United States today possesses against the world is resolved. Reciprocity measures must be enacted against the United States to challenge its shameless actions under the Trump regime. Global response must also come in the form of economic sanctions on products directly associated with the Trump corporate brand.
As citizens of the world we must unite against tyranny wherever it emerges and challenge it. As Trump reveals himself to be a danger not just for the US but the rest of the international community it is our right to protect and defend ourselves from the madness of rogue entity with no regard for international law, human rights, or common decency.
We call on the international community from all backgrounds and ideologies, across social stratas and religions, to resist the madness leaking out of the United States. We call for the creation of global boycotts against US made products, we call on you to contact your representatives and members of parliament and congress to apply sanctions on the Trump regime, we call on you to take part in divestment of US shares. BDS the US until the maleficent Trump regime is brought to justice.
To the citizens of the United States, this is not an attack on you but firm and necessary action against the rising tyranny that today befalls you. Participate in your own liberation from the Trump regime by applying economic and political pressure on your house and senate representatives to push the impeachment of the Trump regime. The Trump regime will not listen to protests in the streets, but it will crumble under protests in the work force & sanctions, divestment, and boycotts abroad. We call on you, the citizens of the United States, to organize rolling work strikes nation-wide. Remove your labour from the pockets of the tyrants, disrupt the markets they are so proud of, and take the reins of your governance back by building society and mass collaboration. Forget making America great again, together we can make humanity great again.
We are Anonymous.
We are everywhere.
We are legion.
We are those you have left without a home.
We are those you have murdered.
We are voiceless no more.
The world will change. We’ll change it.
Tyrants of the World,

Previously a Twitter account linked to the hacktivist collective claimed that, ‘You have financial and personal ties with Russian mobsters, child traffickers, and money launderers.’
The hacker collective did not provide evidence to back up its unsubstantiated allegations, or say how the group intended to expose this information.
much worse – just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the build-up of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?

The hacktivist group went on, ‘This isn’t the 80’s any longer, information doesn’t vanish, it is all out there. You are going to regret the next 4 years.’
