Anonymous stand up for peace and freedom. Anonymous criticizes dictatorship in North Korea and announced that they had gained access to North Korea's web servers. Here is the consequence of their attck http://www.examiner.com/article/anonymous-declares-war-on-north-korea-disables-government-websites
Can hacking promote good the relationships among countries and political activities? Anonymousness of Anonymous is an advantage of hiding nationality of hackers, but what if North Korea discovers the people who hacked government website? Protest against a nation is very risky, but gives great impacts to the world.

Anonymous attacked websites of the government and Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers against copyright law. Since it happened in my country, I remember the chaos that Anonymous brought to Japan. Since Anonymous published their statement in English, some Japanese people translated it in their own way and posted on YouTube. Like the Arab Spring and Israel, Anonymous react internationally.

Israel hackers started hacking against Anonymous. Since Anonymous are anonymous, it's easy to create fake account and website of Anonymous and say "We attacked Anonymous!". Anonymousness of the group is is very controversial to identify people behind the group and officialness and credibility of statements, webpage and account.

The way Anonymous made a comment is a bit different from their usual statement starting "Hello, the citizens of the world...", so it seems people who hacked the websites are different from Anonymous group. However, I found this article from Anonymous's Facebook page.

Here is another banning on Guy Fawkes mask. Is this too much or not? Anonymous needs to be anonymous, so wearing the mask was the way to hide people's faces, but it became the symbol of protests. If someone who doesn't know Guy Fawkes, he/she would be identify the mask as Anonymous.
