Anonymous is calling for a May 1st Global Resistance

 Anonymous (used as a mass noun) is a loosely associated hacktivist group. It originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan, representing the concept of many online and offline community users simultaneously existing as an anarchic, digitized global brain.[2] It is also generally considered to be a blanket term for members of certain Internet subcultures, a way to refer to the actions of people in an environment where their actual identities are not known.[3] It strongly opposes Internet censorship and surveillance, and has hacked various government websites. It has also targeted major security corporations.[4][5][6] It also opposes Scientology and government corruption. Its members can be distinguished in public by the wearing of stylised Guy Fawkes masks.[7]

This is their slogan:
We are a family
We are Anonymous,
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Expect us

 I wonder if they will have a big turn out like the Occupy groups did.
