Remember, remember!

    The fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!
    Guy Fawkes and his companions
    Did the scheme contrive,
    To blow the King and Parliament
    All up alive.

Well it's never too late my friend. November 5th is just around the corner and let's hope for a day of defiance as anon activity will hoperfully spread across the globe with over 400 planned events. A map is available for people to check the locations. For all you Londoners meet up is at 6pm.

The peoples assembly have been creating their very own twitter trend called #BurnAusterity, follow that to find out where anti Austerity events will be taking place around the UK.

Recently, new fledglings of Anonymous have been spurring up to cause havoc across the internet and hacking has become a daily thing. Currently, Clownsec has thought to have the most activity due to it's comical pranking of government websites. L0V3Sec is launching a campaign of hugs in order to spread some joy into the movement and it's clear that all these new wings have sprung up to give multiple methods for Anonymouses new claimant of war against the state. One of the most recent attacks has been on the NSA (National Security Agency), the US intelligence gathering organisation via the Direct Denial Of Service (a common tool used by inexperienced hackers).

SchNEWS interviewed an organiser of the worldwide “Million Mask March” campaign with the allias of Garisenshi. “Well, when we started the campaign in early July no one seemed interested. Then by October when the Syrian Electronic army started hacking other websites to advertise the event, people just started popping out of nowhere. A lot of newfags asking for hacking tips and help..which have been followed by trolls and it has spurred into arguments. So yeah, it's been hard. Keeping everyone from arguing has been hard enough nevermind actually getting everyone to the locations with lift support, getting the equipment we need and keeping security tight!”. 

The rumours of occupying parliaments across the world turned into actual plans, as well as marching bands being booked for the event to get protestors ready to rock. Main events will be used for grassroots co-operatives to advertise their new internet based corporation using illegal broadband. One of the most popular of these is The Pirate Network, a co-operative free broadband service that is spanning around the country. They also have plans to make an independent TV service called Pirate TV which will be unveiled at the Pirate stall on Trafalgar Square.

As well as Anonymous and The People's Assembly, Black Bloc movements are also planning road block events around London. Samba kits and banners have been travelling all around the country in caravans and black hoodie full busses.

It should be a blast.
