In V for Vendetta, the protagonist V is a revolutionary fighting a fascist British regime in a dystopian future. V broadcasts a video message calling the British public to action on November 5 in honor of Guy Fawkes’s 1605 attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament and assassinate King James I. The film ends in a violent explosion–which had some university officials worried that the V-masked hacker might be threatening to do something similar.

Here’s the text: “V’s Speech To WSU[4]” (c/o Computer World, “V for Vendetta Hacker Broadcasts Video at Washington State University[5]“).
