This is probably one of the big issues I would have going out to a protest, is which issue do I think is the most important, and should therefore be on my placard/t-shirt? Cos there's a lot of stuff right now that's worth taking to the streets over - Snowden's revelations regarding the NSA, the knock-on effect of that on GCHQ, the fact that wages are stagnant while MPs give themselves a 10% pay rise, the undermining of the NHS, our ongoing involvement in Afghanistan, the fact that the Met are tracking legitimate protesters and labelling them "domestic extremists", the EDL's racist attacks on mosques, the invasion of privacy by undercover police in order to smear victims of police violence...

Honestly, it's almost a wonder that Britain isn't rioting right now.

I would think that a 6'5" Guy Fawkes would kinda stand out in a crowd.

To be fair, it is rather difficult for me to NOT stand out in a crowd.
