The group's blog and Facebook page, announcing protests in key Indian cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata, drew steady support from Internet users.
Taking cues from the 'Occupy Wall Street' protests in the U.S., the demonstrations in the Indian cities called for public gatherings in key urban locations.
The planned Occupy-style protests called on Internet users to throng to the protest venues wearing Guy Fawkes masks, a symbol widely used by the hacktivist group.
"Internet is the only free media we have. Censoring it will mean that free speech is not possible any more," a member of Anonymous was quoted as saying.
