Protesters in Hong Kong are wearing Guy Fawkes masks featured in V for Vendetta, written by Alan Moore and illustrated by David Lloyd in the early eighties.
‘In the News’ Intro:
The Hong Kong government has banned face masks in an attempt to combat the protest movement that has affected the city since June 2019. The Hong Kong governor stated that the ban was necessary to restore order. The wearing of masks has been common because people are concerned that they could be identified and arrested.
