Let me see if I've got this straight.  Your claim is that "Anonymous" is a bunch of basement virgin /b/tards.  They claim to be organising a rally in Canberra (arse end of the universe, regardless what continent you live on).  You then state that we should attend to keep the /b/tards in check.

So… if they're really /b/tard basement virgins, are we really expecting anyone to actually turn up in Canberra?

And if *I* turn up to join the protest, doesn't that mean that I'm allying myself with a bunch of folks who have only just recently engaged in activity designed to interrupt the daily operation of Government? Can someone point out how I can possibly turn up to that protest without being tarred with the "faxes porn to ministers" brush?

Is this really just a case of /b/tards messin' wit' y'all?
