Remember 5th of November, but what does it means?
Remember remember 5th of November,
but do you know what it means?
Guy Fawkes Day, also called Bonfire Night, British observance, celebrated on November 5, commemorating the failure of the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. The Gunpowder Plot conspirators, led by Robert Catesby, were zealous Roman Catholics enraged at King James I for refusing to grant greater religious tolerance to Catholics.
Fawkes attempted to blow up the House of Lords by planting explosives underneath it, and the holiday is in part to celebrate James' survival as king after Fawkes and other conspirators were executed following their failed Gunpowder Plot. However, Fawkes’ likeness has since been adopted as a symbol of protest against tyranny, especially among anarchist groups, such as the decentralized hacktivist collective known as Anonymous.
That is due in large part to the V for Vendetta DC Comic by Moore and David Lloyd, which was adapted into a popular movie penned by the Wachowskis and directed by James McTeigue in 2006.
The film centers around a dystopian future in which the U.K. is ruled by a fascist totalitarian regime. An anarchist named V, played by Hugo Weaving, donning a Fawkes mask, sets out to ignite a revolution through elaborate acts of terror, recruiting Natalie Portman’s Evey Hammond along the way.
The gun powder treason and plot. There is no reason why the gun powder treason and plot should ever be forgotten.
V for Vendetta truly depicted not only imagined but already actual situation in the world more actual than ever.
So remember, remember the 5th of November!
