Anonymous Prepares for ‘Million Mask March’ Protests In Cities Around the World… Find One Near You!

The November 5th Anonymous Day of Action Is Fast Approaching, kicking off tonight and throughout the day tomorrow. This Day of Action has been planned for months now, and we have reported on it (twice) leading up to the big day for the Anonymous “hacktivist” group’s “Million Mask March.”

Rallies begin tonight, but are scheduled to correspond with Tuesday’s Guy Fawkes Day. This is an annual celebration which began centuries ago in Britain. It was popularized in the movie V For Vendetta, wherein the main character uses the mask as a symbol of mass public protest and revolution. Despite some argument of its origins of use in the Anonymous “hacktivist” movement, the mask has now become a symbol for the group.

Fawkes, like the character in the aforementioned movie, plotted to blow up the British Parliament as part of the Gunpowder Treason Plot on November 5, 1605. The Million Mask March, however, is a planned peaceful protest, whereby neither human, nor building are to be destroyed.

Anonymous have scheduled rallies for Nov 5 in more than 400 cities around the globe. The largest of these is, without a doubt, going to be the event in Washington, DC with London following as a close second in anticipated turn out.

With events starting at 9 am, the organizers emphasize that the point of the rallies is “To remind this world what it has forgotten, That fairness, justice and freedom are more than just words.”

Facebook pages are still up for rallies around the world, not just throughout the U.S. and the U.K. but in Nigeria, Mexico, the Netherlands, Turkey, Italy, Greece, New Zealand, Irelana, Canada, Servia, Belieze, Switzerland, Poland, Brazil and all over. Visit the Anonymous page for these events and locations, grab a mask at your local Party Store and head on out there this #Nov5th.
