The anti-G8 protestors in London today are using OpenStreetMap on their website 'Mapping the Corporations'. http://mappingthecorporations.org/

See https://network23.org/stopg8/j11-carnival-against-capitalism/j11-map-of-the-capitalist-west-end/ and https://twitter.com/stopG8UK - news coverage at http://www.itv.com/news/london/story/2013-06-11/anti-capitalist-g8-protests/

Just thought it's quite interesting. Was surprised actually: I was more than expecting to see a Google Maps mashup, which might have rather dampened their message that Google are, in their view, "Capitalist hipster scumbags attempting to monopolise all information on the internet, data-mine users' personal data and use it for profit."
