A worldwide day of protests and cyber attacks against governments, banks and security firms has been launched by Hacker collective Anonymous to mark Guy Fawkes Day. Hundreds of people marched in London, while another rally hit Washington, DC.
Around 200 Anonymous supporters, according to RT’s London Bureau, assembled in London’s Trafalgar Square for Operation Vendetta, a march to the Houses of Parliament. The group itself claims over 9,000 people joined the action.
November 5 commemorates Guy Fawkes' failed 1605 Gunpowder Plot to blow up the House of Lords in London. A mask bearing his stylized visage – which featured prominently in V for Vendetta – has been adopted by Anonymous and Occupy Wall Street protesters as a universal symbol against tyranny.
