# OpFreeAssange: Anonymous attacks sites British Government to support Assange
The reason? Clearly protest the refusal to grant a pass London to Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, to abandon the embassy of Ecuador in the British capital and can take a flight to Quito, where he has been granted political asylum.
From the Twitter account @Anon_Central explained that the measure included a series of DDoS attacks that managed to knock out the website of the Ministry of Justice, the British Royal Family and some sites of the Swedish Government.
On YouTube there are several videos concerning this action, including eastern AnonOpsIbero found in Spanish, and they explain the reasons for their attacks, noting that in his opinion, “now we must protect and defend Assange … To defend and protect Julian Assange are protecting our freedom of speech “:
In addition, through Facebook and from the profile OpLeakGuard have summoned an event that includes a series of similar actions to develop in the coming days against Swedish and British sites, and can also be followed on Twitter with the tag #OpLeakGuard .
Does it add something such actions? We have seen many such attacks, which I believe serve to express discomfort and have a hard time making those responsible for the sites in question … Little more. I believe that action at the Embassy of Ecuador in London, or directly at the headquarters of the Ministry of Justice or British Foreign might be more effective as a measure of pressure, what do you think?
