Ori Feibush didn’t like the trash in the vacant lot next to his coffee shop. So he spent about $20,000 to fix it up and install what is basically a “pocket park”, with fencing, trees and park benches.
Except Feibush had a small problem. The property wasn’t his. It was owned by the city who was not happy with Mr. Feibush and they are considering legal action against him.
Now all of this would just be kind of dumb, and one would think that some deal would be worked out between Mr. Feibush’s attorneys and legal counsel for the city.
Except Anonymous then entered on the side of Mr. Feibush. Claiming he was being treated unfairly by the city, they launched an “op” against the city, #opPhillyGovTrash – threatening to pay the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority and Councilman Kenyatta Johnson “a visit” (~2:10).
A pastebin post contained further threats:
For seeking to take unwarranted punitive action against this small business owner, a member of the 99%, you have gathered the attention of Anonymous. This is not something you wish to do. We demand you immediately retract all claims of wrong doing by Mr Feibush and that you seek to arrange amicable compensation for his expenses incurred while doing YOUR job. Failure to do so is a terribly foolish move, and will not go unpunished. You have been warned.
