Moist for Justice: Anonymous in Bristol

Posted by Martin Poulter on 12 August 2008

Continuing Martin’s adventures with Anonymous. Last Saturday the 8th was the second protest by the Bristol branch of Anonymous, attempting to cult-immunise the city. Ten protestors took part, some of whom commandeered a vessel yarrrr shipmates… erm, arrived by ferry. A walk around the city centre with flags, masks and placards prompted a lot of rubber-necking from passers-by, and some very cool photo opportunities. Photos and video below.

Despite the new batteries in the megaphone, it took me a while to get into the spirit of protesting. When we were handing out cake and one dropped on the ground, I adapted the Anonymous motto “For each one that falls, ten more will take its place.” Another line was “Talk to a protestor; pick up a leaflet. If you’re really lucky, pick up a protestor.”

Weather was mostly terrible: as we stood near the fountains, handing out leaflets and waving placards, we gradually got soaked, but soaked in a good cause. As I said on the megaphone, “We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We’re moist, but we’re Moist FOR JUSTICE” – a tagline that was willingly adopted by our strong female contingent.
