Not sure if you've been to those countries.. they're not homogeneous at all. For some reason mainly Turkish and Moroccan immigrants, and of course people from former colonies.(Surinam people have the best dutch accent EVER)
In my part of the world its mainly Moroccan, Turkish, Spanish and Italian because we used to advertise to people there to come to our country to work because we had a labour shortage(caused some issues when the mines ware closed but in return we got spaghetti, kebab and more) And of course there is also former colony people for other reasons and people from all over the world for whatever reason they could think of.

Agree with hellow533 here, they can only exist because governments allow them. And they do more then just allow it, they give them huge tax cuts and make laws tailored specifically to their needs/desires. (mostly in the loopholes for laws, not in the direct idea of those laws unless if you're the MPAAfia)

All anonymous is is a bunch of 4chan faggots trying to have a bit of glory. I've never seen them do any true defacement or hacking, not only that but what "hacking" they do is benign and usually never gets them anywhere. They have a bad rep for being useless.
I think the message here was "watch out, your gov is being evil and prepping for civil war!" not "ohshi, your gov is being evil, if they don't shape up we need to start a civil war!"
And as for anon... some fun hacks ware done but most things are not really relevant, and lets not forget their main weapon is and has always been to just troll folks.(which I admit, has entertained me a lot in the past when the reasons ware simple and not so "political")
As for several posts above.. I kinda wanted to debunk the idea that people in the us have rights (they have privileges which may be taken away), but am far too lazy to do the research into specific examples. (if we assume a "right" means something that is granted to everyone and cannot be taken away no matter the political climate, I'm sure you could all find some examples of where this has not been the case.) So lets just all pretend that rights are a real thing and you have them.
