Most Americans know of the famous V for Vendetta from the Graphic Novel and film. But what is the story of Guy Fawkes and why Is it so important right now? Especially that it is one day before these critical mid-term elections in the U.S.

V for Vendetta was originally a Graphic Novel written by Alan Moore illustrated by David Lloyd and published first in March of 1982. It was subsequently made into a 2005 British film written by the Wachowski’s who wrote and directed the Matrix, then the Wachowski brothers. 

Originally known as the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, Guy Fawkes joined a group of English Catholics and attempted to assassinate Protestant King James -James VI of scotland, by planting 900 kilos of gunpowder in the cellar of the Palace of Westminster. Fawkes was caught while checking on the stored powder hours before the plot was due to be set in motion, as an anonymous letter was sent to alert the King. Fawkes was arrested and tortured into revealing the names of his co-conspirators, and subsequently executed.

The anniversary of the thwarted Gunpowder Plot of 1605 is celebrated in the U.K. every year on November, 5. In commemoration, amongst the backdrop of fireworks and frenzy, effigies of Britain’s most famous terrorist made with newspaper, straw, and old clothes are burned in bonfires, all adorned with masks bearing a likeness of Fawkes’ face. From 1605 until 1939 every village green in the shires had a bonfire on Guy Fawkes’ Day. During the WWII not bonfires were allowed. 

Parliament declared November 5 Guy Fawkes day and it’s now celebrated with bonfires, fireworks in the parks and the carrying of “guys” through the streets. “Guys” are stuffed, straw figures of unpopular persons; and after they have been shown to everybody they are burnt in the bonfires amid great acclamation. The children black their faces and put on comical clothes, and go about begging for a Penny for the Guy. 

The famous mask is used to represent freedom from tyranny of all kinds. We can see how current again this subject is.  read more about it here

“Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and, for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth.” One of my favorite movie quotes of all time.

“If you think you’re too small to make a difference, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room.”

“When a government does not stand for the best interests of the people, it should not stand at all.” 

Think about Guy Fawkes and what he would do if he could Vote.

V for Vendetta

The V for VENDETTA  mask was made famous by writer Alan Moore’s and David Lloyd’s graphic  novel V for VICTORY {82-89} later made in to a popular film by the Wachowski brothers  who also made The MATRIX. 

Artist Lloyd is quoted saying: “The Guy Fawkes mask has now become a common brand and a convenient placard to use in protest against tyranny – and I’m happy with people using it, it seems quite unique, an icon of popular culture being used this way.”

 It is now illegal to wear masks at protests in Canada now. How 1984 is that for you? Big Brother Harper.
