Timed to coincide German Chancellor Angela Merkel's visit to Athens, Anonymous posted a YouTube video criticizing the elaborate security measures and curfew taken to safeguard Merkel, comparing the government to the Greek Junta.
Ekathimerini reported Anonymous used the tag-line #OpSolidarityGreece to publicise their attack on Twitter.
