A worldwide day of protests and cyber attacks against governments, banks and security firms has been launched by Hacker collective Anonymous to mark Guy Fawkes Day. Hundreds of people marched in London, while another rally hit Washington, DC.
Around 200 Anonymous supporters, according to RT’s London Bureau, assembled in London’s Trafalgar Square for Operation Vendetta, a march to the Houses of Parliament. The group itself claims over 9,000 people joined the action.

November 5 commemorates Guy Fawkes' failed 1605 Gunpowder Plot to blow up the House of Lords in London. A mask bearing his stylized visage – which featured prominently in V for Vendetta – has been adopted by Anonymous and Occupy Wall Street protesters as a universal symbol against tyranny.

According to ZDNET, ImageShack, PayPal, NBC, Lady GaGa's official, Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Fallon and Jay Leno portals (related to NBC), Arcelor Mittal (mining company in Australia), GiftNow, the official Greek City site and the Ghana Consulate site have all been hacked and defaced in some way. Further, someone has leaked source for the kernel of VMware's ESX Server software.

They seem to act at their will
They can hack any public or government Website
They can organize protest rallies when they want
And still governments can do nothing
It seems Anonymous are winning their battle
I wonder when will all this end ?

Did anyone else?

What do you mean by that? You don't think resistance against our corrupt governments is necessary? so choose not to participate today?

Elaborate on your vague comment...
