Guy Fawkes Goes Global

From being a purely British celebration designed by the pusillanimous puritans to stop paganistic peasants parading their private parts in profligate pleasuremongering (Tuesday is plosives day on Boggart Blog)Guy Fawkes Day has gone global.

Russia Today reports:

Supporters of the Anonymous hacktivist collective are holding rallies all around the world on November 5, Guy Fawkes Day. They are protesting against what they see as the rule of greedy corporations and corrupt governments around the world.

To help us understand how dear old Guy Fawkes (not to be confused with blogger Guido Fawkes) has become a symbol all around the world for resistance to government corruption and corporate greed, RT have produced a map with a little flag showing the intended venues for these protests in which participants will wear the unbiquitous Guy Fawkes Mask.

And guess what … the only country where there isn’t one is ……………………………………………………………………………………wait for it …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

RUSSIA!
