Masked Vendetta-Seekers Chain Up Doors to Parliament

A curious incident took place at the parliament building yesterday morning when three masked crusaders chained up and locked the main entrance to parliament in protest of the conduct of politicians.

 

V for Vendetta, inspiration for the protest

The men, calling themselves ‘Vendeta Odplata’, carried out their bold plan as they want to draw attention to the arrogance of politicians and their underhand practices, citing theft, corruption and almost mafia-like behaviour among Slovak MPs.

They referred to parliament as a “broken-down institution” that produces ”laws that aggravate citizens”, while chasing after public funds through fixed tenders and other sources of financing.

The identities of the three masked justice fighters is still unknown, but their vigilante identity Vendetta is taken from the classic film ‘V for Vendetta’, which was a ten-issue dystopian comic book series written by Alan Moore, set in adystopian future United Kingdom imagined in the 1980s to 1990s. A mysterious revolutionary who calls himself “V” works to destroy the totalitarian government, profoundly affecting the people he encounters. Warner Bros. released the classic film adaptation in 2006.

The comic series depicts a near-future Britain after a nuclear war, which has left much of the world destroyed, though most of the damage to Britain is indirect, via floods and crop failures. In this future, a fascist party called “Norsefire” has exterminated its opponents in concentration camps and now rules the country as a police state. “V”, an anarchist revolutionary dressed in a Guy Fawkes mask, begins an elaborate, violent, and intentionally theatrical campaign to murder his former captors, bring down the government, and convince the people to rule themselves.
