Many sites are planing blackout in protest against CISPA on Monday including Zerosecurity, as the debatable law makes its way to the United States Senate. Anonymous has advocated another blackout and is now storming Twitter with calls for action.
In a announcement on Pastebin, Anonymous has asked all the internet users to dedicate “at least a portion” of their day to help in the fight against CISPA.

If the bill is passed, the law would admit the United States government to extract private data from sites without warrant. It would also forbid anyone from suing companies for delivering such data.
On January 18, 2012, the internet blackout was put into action by more than 7,000 sites, including Wikipedia, Reddit and Google, for SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act), which were thrown out days after the action.
