Attend the ‘Occupy Mumbai’ Protest

June 1, 2012 8:10 am by

The scallywags responsible for screwing up our Internet surfing experience by blocking file sharing sites like The Pirate Bay and Vimeo might not get their comeuppance soon enough, but in the meantime, hacker group Anonymous suggests we retaliate by doing what we do best: protesting. The group, which briefly brought down the websites of the Supreme Court of India, and the Congress party in revenge, is organising a peaceful protest on Saturday, June 9 at the Gateway of India Azad maidan. A Facebook page, where thus far 950 people have confirmed their attendance, declares: “If the government doesn’t unblock all websites by Saturday, 9th June 2012 4PM we will retaliate. Every citizen of India is required to be wearing Anonymous’ (Fawkes) mask and assemble in the streets for a peaceful protest on 9th June. Wear black head to toe, download and print Anonymous face mask and wear it.”

The mask incidentally can be put together by following the instructions here. Will you be attending? And more importantly, is there a simpler way to make those damn masks? Tell us in the comments section.

    or… just go to crawford market with 180 bucks, and get a mask, instead of being cheap, and painting fucking pillowcases

    +1 to Random Passer-by. Anonymous has its problems.

    An easier way to make the mask? Invent a face-masking hologram overnight or just wear a painted pillowcase. Both will serve the purpose.

    WE WANT FREEDOM……………………..

  4. What the F?! Vimeo is like YouTube for hipsters. Why the hell did they block that? Unless I’m mistaken somehow? There’s no point in rallying with masks, just retaliate and wait until they return services back to normal.

    You know what’s wrong with movements like this? Poor wording.

    >> Every citizen of India is required to be wearing Anonymous’ (Fawkes) mask…
    >> Every citizen of India is required to be wearing
    >> required to be wearing
    >> required

    Really? Anarchy by order?
