Hello, so I’m sure that these questions have probably been asked several times already, but I’m doing a bit of research on the importance of the Guy Fawkes mask (V For Vendetta) in the Occupy Movement and I’d like to know some of the opinions about how the mask as a symbol connects with the protesters and what it stands for by those who have worn it during the movement (is the mask (including the man(?) behind it) associated more along the lines of the abstract (for example, the mask means liberation, solidarity, social justice, rebellion etc.) or is it simply a matter of its popularity (identity, is it just cool to wear the mask?). Obviously the opinions that are expressed are limited to those who have internet access in this case, thus it is not representative of people who do not use the internet (and of course people who don’t visit this forum). Regardless, I figured that this would be a good place to start in order to formulate a picture of what the mask means to the protesters and nonprotesters (those who have not physically protested, yet sympathize with the movement.) I’d appreciate any input or feedback that pertains to these questions.
