Anonymous (group) Anonymous (used as a mass noun) is a loosely associated international network of activist and hacktivist entities. A website nominally associated with the group describes it as "an internet gathering" with "a very loose and decentralized command structure that operates on ideas rather than directives". The group became known for a series of well-publicized publicity stunts and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on government, religious, and corporate websites. Anonymous 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. Anonymous members (known as "Anons") can be distinguished in public by the wearing of stylised Guy Fawkes masks.
FreeAnons We are FreeAnons and until every Anon is free we will attest to the Anonymous creed, “We do not forgive. We do not forget.” The storm may have passed but so long as our comrades are held captive we will not allow the seas to be calm nor any ship to take refuge in still waters.

2013 protests in Turkey The 2013–14 protests in Turkey started on 28 May 2013, initially to contest the urban development plan for Istanbul's Taksim Gezi Park. The protests were sparked by outrage at the violent eviction of a sit-in at the park protesting the plan. Subsequently, supporting protests and strikes took place across Turkey protesting a wide range of concerns, at the core of which were issues of freedom of the press, of expression, assembly, and the government's encroachment on Turkey's secularism. With no centralised leadership beyond the small assembly that organized the original environmental protest, the protests have been compared to the Occupy movement and the May 1968 events. 8 Most Awesome Hacks Conducted By Anonymous Hackers Research proved that Anonymous hacktivists group is relatively much bigger than you anticipated and become quite popular among people all over the world.

The CaMV promoter story The CaMV promoter story The Biosafety Protocol concluded in Montreal reaffirms the precautionary principle but the problem is one of ensuring that the principle is implemented, as illustrated by the case of the CaMV promoter. The CaMV promoter is a gene-switch from the cauliflower mosaic virus which is incorporated into practically all current GM crops. Recent scientific findings reveal it may be highly unsafe. #OpNewblood – Anonymous is Recruiting AnonHQ Anonymous Over the years computers have become a part of our daily modern existence. From texting to watching movies, posting on Facebook or sharing pictures on Instagram over to Tweeting random thoughts, these things have become so common that our daily lives are incomplete without them. But with all these electronic interacting devices, groups and networks lies a thin line of security risk. More or less, this “risk” is based within the machine or the device itself. With a fear that people can exploit those vulnerabilities and alter the information for various reasons – Hacker – was the title crowned to those individuals who could manipulate electronic information systems, and as time passed the term hacker got a bad reputation.
Regulators Discover a Hidden Viral Gene in Commercial GMO Crops by Jonathan Latham and Allison Wilson How should a regulatory agency announce they have discovered something potentially very important about the safety of products they have been approving for over twenty years? In the course of analysis to identify potential allergens in GMO crops, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has belatedly discovered that the most common genetic regulatory sequence in commercial GMOs also encodes a significant fragment of a viral gene (Podevin and du Jardin 2012). This finding has serious ramifications for crop biotechnology and its regulation, but possibly even greater ones for consumers and farmers. This is because there are clear indications that this viral gene (called Gene VI) might not be safe for human consumption.
