Anonymous strikes again

Anonymous disrupted the website of the Greek Ministry of Justice late last month.

The message, in greek (of course) is supposed to read something like this (and note that I've taken some liberties to make the translation flow better):

Citizens of Greece
     We are Anonymous.
We watch every day as your government abolishes the constitution and institutions of the country.
We see them leading you closer and closer to poverty.
We see them pass laws that deprive you of any right to dignity.
We see them deliver the country to the IMF and the bankers.
We know about the soup kitchens in schools,
for people who are left jobless and now wait in queues for a plate of food.
We know that your country voted for ACTA in your effort to silence other Greeks.
We know everything ...
The Republic in Greece has died.
It died with a government that has not been elected by the people.
And for this reason the time for discussion came and went.
Not negotiating anything with any of those who murdered it.
You can hunt as you like, you can even capture some of us,
     But w
hen you attempt to silence us ...
or every one that will you capture 3 others will spring up. Five or ten or a hundred.
Now the Greeks are all Anonymous.
     We are millions against you and the 300.  In this war tear gas will not help you.
     To the Occupying Government of Greece
These days is going to vote for a bill that will be the last nail in the coffin of Greece.
A bill to return the country to a totalitarian rule.
To bring the country and its people in absolute poverty.
We will not allow more misery to the Greek people.
We demand your resignation immediately, and elections.
We demand that not a cent be paid to your moneylender 'friends.'
We demand the immediate withdrawal of the IMF from Greece.
Justice Department, this is only a small sample of what we're capable of doing.
ou have not seen the full wrath of Anonymous.
For each article of a bill that would shame the vote,
we will shut down the system and delete the Internal Revenue debts of Greek citizens.
Debts which requires them to pay the fascists.
The demonstrations of the Greeks have had their encounter with incredible violence,
anexelekta hitting, but the internet is our field. And we love this war.

     We are many and we will be swift.
     Citizens of Greece, Anonymous is now fighting on your side ... 
     Government of Greece, let us wait ...

     E X P E C T  U S !

The Greek police announced the arrest of three teenagers for the hack.  But the meme goes on--Anonymous has brought down the MoJ website with a DDoS attack, in retribution for the arrests.
In other news, several members of LulzSec, the group that left Anonymous to follow its own agenda--including the recent hack of Stratfor--have been arrested.  It seems that the FBI was able to get one leader to turn on his buddies.  The organization may be crippled.  That is what happens when you start moving from leaderless resistance to a collection of leaders and followers.
