Anonymous supporters to march on Washington Nov. 5 wearing Guy Fawkes masks

by J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) For a candidate who promised to bring America's warring political factions together, Barack Obama's government sure does generate a lot of protesting.

One demonstration being planned for Nov. 5 will feature people associated with Anonymous, a loose confederation of online "hacktivists" who plan to gather on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for a wide ranging number of causes.

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon:

Flyers began appearing around downtown D.C. over the weekend advertising the "Million Mask March," which will take place on Guy Fawkes Day.

Anonymous members, when they appear in public, are known for donning masks of Guy Fawkes, who unsuccessfully tried to blow up the England's House of Lords on Nov. 5, 1605, and restore Catholicism to England.

'Remember, remember...'

The online news site reported that the group supports those who leak government secrets like Julian Assange, Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden. It was also very closely associated with the now-declining Occupy movement.

Assange is currently holed up in Ecuador's embassy in Great Britain, an effort to avoid extradition to his home country of Sweden to face a pair of sexual assault charges; in August, Manning was convicted of multiple violations of law, including the Espionage Act, and sentenced to 35 years in prison at Fort Leavenworth, KS; and Snowden has been granted temporary asylum in Russia.

Hackers associated with Anonymous will often target large governments and companies who oppose anything the group supports with very malicious cyber attacks.

According to the event's Facebook page, the march is being held "to remind this world what it has forgotten, that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than just words."

'Free Bradley Manning'

"There are quite a few things on the list of 'topics' for this event," the page says. "This will include but [is] not limited to Government (this is a big gray area), Reform, Education, Pharmaceutical companies pushing meds, War, Constitutional rights, Freedom, Unity, Drug abuse, Respect for all of mankind, Corruption, Food - GMO's, Nutrition and health, Children, Violence worldwide, Waking the people. There many more things, too many to list, but just to name a few. FREE BRADLEY MANNING!"

As of this writing, more than 13,000 people have RSVP'd for the event.

Scores of other Anonymous events are scheduled for the same day as the "Million Mask March" in D.C.

According to reports, the website for the Million Mask March also includes a link to revolutionary Anonymous poetry.

"How did they get rich / I'll tell you the way," an Anonymous poet writes. "By being a bitch / or stealing the pay."
