A new video message allegedly from the Danish branch of the internet collective Anonymous was uploaded to YouTube this week.
In the video, the speaker stresses that Danes should not let a terror attack frighten them into giving up their rights as the government proposes new anti-terror measures.
“These terrorists seek to spread fear, and it seems they have succeeded,” the message says, reports Danish media.
The Anonymous speaker claims that the Danish government is trying to use fear “to restrict the rights of their citizens” and suggests that the United States' offers of help following the France and Denmark attacks are a “clear call of the US government wanting to extend their power.”
The video concludes by saying: “Anonymous have your back Denmark, and we will not let this attack go unpunished,” referring to the collective's campaign to deactivate the online accounts used by supporters of the Islamic State terrorist organization.
