|

The hacktivist collective Anonymous kicked off 'Operation Guantanamo' to mark 100 days of the Gitmo hunger strike with a series of "twitterstorms, email bombs and fax bombs." Protests have been held outside the White House demanding the camp's closure.

What was characterized as a large group of protesters took part in an demonstration outside of the White House on Friday, with activists donning orange jumpsuits and black hoods to bring attention to the plight of the detainees. Several arrests were reportedly made after protesters ignored police orders to disperse, though the exact number of those detained remains unknown.
