What the FSF feels about DRMs in general, and what the GPLv3 actually forbids are two different things. The GPLv3 scope is necessarily limited to the areas where DRM and GPLed software interact.
Moreover the "Day Against DRM" is about fighting the attempts to make DRM mandatory and protected every possible way by the law. Even if it is hugely successful it won't outlaw DRMs (Tivos for example existed well before the drastic Hollywood DRM laws started being written.
