The protest came about after classified cable leaks organization WikiLeaks released emails documenting conversations between employees of intelligence firm Strafor and domestic surveillance firm TrapWire. A call-to-action was established on website Anon News with a video and a Pastebin document of the announcement in various languages.

Protestors in London donned the grinning Guy Fawkes mask used in the movie V for Vendetta as they assembled at the Trafalgar Square before marching to the Parliament. The protest was largely peaceful but ten people were arrested for “public order offences”.
