The idea of Anonymous is that all of us deserve freedom, of speech, of knowledge, of and of assembly, of belief, the freedom to determine the course and destination of our own lives. In Trafalgar Square, London, 5:15 pm: “Whose street? Our street”, “One solution. Revolution”, every time the police announcement about not committing any felonies took place. The atmosphere was powerful. They took over Nelson’s column. Masks and determined energies at each step. There were children with masks alongside their parents whose excitement could be seen through their jumping around.
And when they marched, every movement of the city stopped and they marched convincingly, actively towards the Parliament Square where they planned to stay for a while but the barricades and policemen were already there. So the streets were occupied, fireworks shouted with them, water was thrown towards the security and dogs were barking behind the fence. Each wanted their own idea to be put forward, the police and the protesters were on opposite sides but some tried to convince the others to join them. None moved from their position. And the rest was silence.
Every year, the November 5th Resistance movement in the UK grows bigger and stronger. In 2011 there were 500-600 people, in 2012 there were over 2000 people, this year over 2500. This idea is not going away.
