I know that everybody has their Guy Fawkes masks at the ready, just bubbling with revolutionary zeal based on a comic book-style movie. That’s cool, i guess, but it might be more instructive to remember a non-fictional event of the 5th that probably has more value for the nascent protest movement in the United States. On November 5, 1916, a boatload of IWW members arrived at the dock in Everett, WA to support a shingle workers’ strike. The Wobblies didn’t give the sheriff the leader he asked for, they declared themselves all to be leaders. So the mob on the dock opened fire.
