Girl refuses RFID chip in school, gets suspended – Anonymous reacts

Hacktivist group Anonymous has gone after Antonio’s Northside Independent School District’s website after a student was suspended for refusing to wear her RFID necklace.

Anonymous took down the entire school’s district website after Andrea Hernandez refused to wear the tracking chip which later lead to her suspension. Hernandez refused to wear the device based on religious and privacy grounds and was even threatened with expulsion following several months of back and forth with the board.

“These ‘student locator’ programmes are ultimately aimed at getting students used to living in a total surveillance state where there will be no privacy, and wherever you go and whatever you text or email will be watched by the government,” says tr1xxyAnon, claiming to be part of the hacktivist group.

“I sincerely hope you have noticed that I have took down your website for a reason, and that reason is stripping away the privacy of students in your school. What was going through your mind when you had this idea?” he added.

Hernandez told Infowars “I feel it’s an invasion of my religious beliefs, I feel it’s the implementation of the Mark of the Beast. It’s also an invasion of my privacy and my other rights.”

Thankfully a judge has issued a temporary restraining order to stop the school from removing Hernandez so she can finish her studies.

The need for tracking students in schools is understandable, though enforcing that with strict reparations and treating young adults as cattle is another thing. RFID chips are nothing new in the wave of technology — not to mention how hackable they are, too (Just Google Mythbusters RFID and you’ll get an idea)

Exploitation seems to be an effective way to control something and maybe that’s what Anonymous should do: exploit the RFID chip publicly and show how easily it can be hacked to render the thoughts of using it. Oh wait, we can’t say that publicly can we? Whoops!
