Hiding their faces behind stylized ‘Anonymous’ masks popularized by the “V for Vendetta” movie, they will come forward to make their voices heard.
The Million Mask March is also about letting “various governments” know that “the free flow of information” will never be stopped.
“We now face a dilemma unfamiliar to any previous human civilization, we face this dilemma not simply as a community, nor a nation; rather collectively as a planet. We have something no previous generation has ever had, the internet,”Anonymous said in its 2015 promo video for the Million Mask March.
Social media has been their major megaphone calling on people to unite in a global move. Anonymous started trends on Twitter such as #MMM, #MMM2015, #MillionMaskMarch, and #Nov5th that are now full of slogans and pictures.
Just like last year, London expects one of the most massive marches on its streets. According to the demonstration’s page on Facebook, 18,000 people are going to join the Anonymous-inspired march.
“The government and the 1% have played their hand, now it is time to play ours,” a Facebook statement reads.
This year’s dress code for the London’s Million Mask March calls for “white judicial wigs, black robes & Anonymous masks for Order of Public Court.” Read full on RT
