Hacker Group in Honor of Aaron Bushnell Hacks 30,000 Printers into Printing Fliers Highlighting Israeli War Crimes Against Gaza

A team of hackers, in the memory of the pro-Palestine late American Air Force serviceman Aaron Bushnell, who burned himself to death as a form of protest against the Israeli regime’s ongoing onslaught on Gaza, has hacked into printers across the globe, causing the machines to print flyers, promoting Bushnell’s message. 

The hacker group, known as ‘Bushnell’s Men’, took to Telegram to post a message stating, “Due to the press boycott of the genocide in Gaza by countries profiting from the war, ‘The Bushnell’s Men’ as a hacker group is committed to exposing the reality via printing this paper through over 30,000 printers across the world.”

The message added, “We ask all truth-seekers to join the #Bushnellmen campaign in this regard. Our ultimate goal is to convey Aaron’s message to stop the genocide. Aaron put an end to his life on behalf of the other American soldiers who are forced to kill the innocent people in Gaza. Aaron didn’t die in vain. He has already inspired so many to stand up for truth and justice.”

On February 25, Aaron Bushnell, succumbed to his wounds sustained from setting himself on fire outside the front gate of the Israeli embassy in Washington, DC; a move which was live streamed on Twitch. Bushnell filmed himself walking to the embassy while declaring that he was protesting against, “what people have been experiencing in Palestine at the hands of their colonizers” and declared that he “will no longer be complicit in genocide.”

Footage of Bushnell’s intense act of protest against the US military’s unwavering support of the Israeli regime’s brutal war on Gaza that has now killed almost 35,000 people since Oct. 7, 2023, went viral, and Bushnell was hailed a hero for giving up his life in solidarity with Palestine. 

The group stated on Telegram, “We have sent a message to the people of Israel through all printers. And in it, we have presented statistics to the bitter reality of the war for the people of Israel. This war is only beneficial for Netanyahu’s government. And all its difficulties and problems are for the people.”

Later that day, the group posted a message confirming that it hacked printers in the US and Europe to print flyers, in a quest to expose the Israeli crimes in Gaza.
