Guy Fawkes Day Protesters Gather Outside Missoula County Courthouse [YouTube]
"Remember, remember the fifth of November," begins a popular poem describing the legend of Guy Fawkes in Great Britain.
A small group of protesters dressed in costume with Guy Fawkes masks stood in front of the Missoula County Courthouse carrying signs reminiscent of the 'Occupy Wall Street' crowd.
The spokeswoman, who identified herself only as 'Sue", said the protesters were there coincidentally the day after the election, because more must change in Washington, D.C. than just business-as-usual party politics.
"We're trying to make a point that the government is overloaded and that things are passing and we have no say in them," she said. "Especially after the elections yesterday, the sheep have spoken. They just want to follow along and they don't realize how bad everything is not working."
Sue said she and her fellow protesters believe Congress must be 'cleared out'.
"I think we need to start fresh," she said. "I believe we should be like Iceland, where when bankers defrauded people out of millions of dollars, they went to jail, not like here. You don't give them money to bail them out."
Sue wanted KGVO listeners and viewers of our website to know that on Guy Fawkes Day, they were represented.
"I just want them to know that today, we stood up for them," she said.
