I asked for more info via twitter and got pointed to this: 

http://www.digitaltrends.com/web/online-activism-site-avaaz-hit-by-massive-cyberattack-from-a-government-or-large-corporation/

Doesn't really inspire a ton of confidence, as it seems to mainly focus on its current campaigns, but I'll take it as face value that's it's real. It'd still be nice to have more info, as it should be pretty easy to trace what botnet this attack belongs too, or is coming from.
