‘We are legion!’ Anonymous allies stand up against corruption in global march

RT 5 Nov 2013

Members and supporters of hacktivist collective Anonymous are marking Guy Fawkes Day with a global ‘Million Mask March’ to protest against government corruption, corporate malfeasance and the expanding surveillance state.

Read RT’s live updates on the march protests.

The global action on November 5 coincides with Guy Fawkes Day,  which is celebrated by Britain with fireworks to remind of the  botched attempt to blow up the Parliament in 1605. But the image  of the notorious plotter has a new meaning for Anonymous and  their supporters today. The Guy Fawkes mask was adopted by the  hacker activists from the V for Vendetta graphic novel and film  as a symbol of the anarchic fight against tyranny.

Cities in  Japan, Australia, and New Zealand have already started their  local events. Activists in Europe and US are expected to join  soon. Event organizers have planned rallies and marches at   450 locations around the world, although the  majority of the events have thus far attracted between several  dozen people or a couple of hundred people.
