Indeed. Even CNN is sometimes not a reliable source of information.

However, the words 'have been cyber attacked' do not necessarily mean sites were actually taken down -- therefore no screenshots are provided.

So, as I am not involved, and have not been so inclined as to inquire with Japanese authorities if any attacks have actually taken place yet, I cannot say for certain what has or hasn't happened, personally.

I can only point to what has been published.

Anonymous wades into Japan's anti-whaling battle

Hackactivist collective plans #OpKillingBay to attack Japanese government websites in protest of dolphin slaughter.

Anonymous is calling for a collective protest against the Japanese tradition of whale and dolphin hunting. The group is threatening to attack 22 Japanese websites, including those of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

There is also a day of action planned on December 1. Activists are using #OpKillingBay and #ShutTaijiDown to demand an end to the practice in the whaling town of Taiji, which was made infamous by the Oscar-winning documentary "The Cove".

#OpKillingBay here is the #TwitterStorm time. December 1st 1:00pm 2013 Expect us #Japan

There is also a petition online encouraging netizens to support the cause.

Critics of the campaign questioned the effectiveness of online activism. They also said Taiji dolphins are not endangered.

The Japanese government has defended its position, claiming that it captures whales only for research...

We are rather concerned that certain NGOs and the media are spreading misinformation on this issue to the public to provoke an emotional reaction against our activities which could make dialogue difficult. For example, this activity is not commercial whaling (although some NGOs have stated differently). The research employs both lethal and non-lethal research methods and is carefully designed by scientists to study the whale populations and ecological roles of the species. We limit the sample to the lowest possible number, which will still allow the research to derive meaningful scientific results. The research plan and its results are annually reviewed by the IWC Scientific Committee.
---------------


Taiji is currently the focus of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which has traveled to the town to live-stream video of the cove. They are also tweeting about the situation from the account @CoveGuardians.

Thanks to AnonOps India for alerting us to the story via Facebook.

Dear editors at AlJazeera. Kindly provide indepth coverage on the slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan. Media silence on this issue strengthens the brutality. The CoveGuardians keep documenting the killings EVERYDAY, something which the media has never bothered to do. Just today, a dozen Risso dolphins were killed at the Cove. I urge you to cover this story! #OpKillingBay

At least Anonymous is on our side. Even if they don't take serious action, they get the word in the news.

And it's playing out so that there is a clear distinction between the two separate groups so that nobody, no matter how foamy mouthed they are against SSCS's tactics, could conflate the two groups and blame one for the other's actions. So far it's coming across like a growing crowd of groups against the slaughter of highly intelligent beings. And that's the best scenario, it puts the focus on how attention-getting the atrocity is, instead of trying to analyze the opposition.

Laws broken by Sea Shepherd or by anyone? Anonymous isn't known to be associated with anyone.

That's a stretch. However, in my opinion, if the government of Japan wants an excuse to eject anti-whaling activists from the country it will simply make one up regardless of any Anonymous campaign.

It's worth pointing out that Ric O'Barry has similar concerns about the effect of Sea Shepherd protests on his own Dolphin Project. :P

Actually, that's exactly how Anonymous originally got famous with its first organized effort against Scientology...

Of course, anyone participating should be aware there are potential legal consequences.

Some Anons, using this software in the past, have been the target of criminal prosecutions as a result.

why is there a SSCS symbol in the top right corner?

They have not hacked any thing. The only thing they have done is put out a load of lies and miss information on twitter. Like there is a load of dolphin meat on its way to the uk on a ship (which they have not given the ships name) the Address  given for the port is the offices which are about 1 mile in land   And there is no way a ship will make the trip in the time they said . Anonymous don't do twitter storms and don't do petitions
