November 5th Guy Fawkes Day=Gunpowder Day

Guy Fawkes was the most recognized figure of the protests in England in 1600’s. In the battle between Protestants and Catholics in England, Guy Fawkes’ plan was to blow up the British Houses of Parliament with royalty attending, by stashing a large amount of gunpowder in the basement of the building the government officials were to meet in. The plot was discovered and Guy Fawkes was captured last minute before setting the gunpowder off, November 5th, 1605. Since then, the Guy Fawkes mask has come to represent protests against government (and religious causes).
