Hackitat – A film about global political hacktivists
On the 29th of November 2009 Malmö’s hackerspace Forskningsavdelningen was raided by masked riot police.
Armed with batons and pepper spay they stormed the social center where the hackerspace housed. Among the policemen were people specializing in IT.
One of the people detained was a hacker named mackt. With a background in The Pirate Bay, for him the raid was yet another proof of society’s mistrust and lack of understanding of hacker culture.
