The People Occupy Puerta del Sol to demand the resignation of the gov't! #Anonymous #Occupy

The Puerta del Sol in Madrid is being occupied since last night. Five people have slept on the square under the equestrian statue to mark the start of an indefinite protest against government corruption and austerity measures.

They were baptised ‘#Las5deSol’, and they have been subject to fervent tweeting ever since the sun came up. Right now, citizens are gathering in the square. According to rumours, there are people occupying in Valencia as well. In Berlin, there was a demonstration against key corruption suspect and visiting prime minister Mariano Rajoy.

 At five, there will be a General Assembly in Sol. Today’s call is not only to storm Popular Party headquarters, but also to occupy for as long as the government doesn’t resign. Keep checking http://www.SpanishRevolution.TV, http://www.TomaLaTele.TV, @15MBcn_Int and @GlobalRevLive.

#Anonymous Leaked Account Data for 4,000 Bank Executives on a Government Website

After hacking up government websites last week, and the week before, Anonymous has pulled off another hack to push their agenda of reforming computer crime law in the wake of Aaron Swartz's suicide. This time, they've leaked names, addresses, and other information about over 4,000 bank executives. And they did it all on a government site.

The leak which is still posted on the official Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center website as of this writing is another another arm of Operation Last Resort. Until now the project has involved plenty of threats but no actual leaks. The leaked info includes titles, addresses, phone numbers, emails, ID numbers, and hashed passwords of the affected bank executives, and while that may seem sort of tangentially related to computer crime reform, that's how Anonymous has been spinning it.

So far there's been no official response to the leak from the parties affected, but there's little reason to believe that all that information is fabricated. Anonymous has been on a pretty successful run of defacing government websites, and it looks like it isn't going to end any time soon. Sure, this hack isn't quite as happy-go-lucky as their last, but it's definitely a pretty serious accomplishment. And you can bet this isn't the end of it.
