ok can i propose a bike ride protest with v for vendetta masks and business suits? you can't get arrested because you're on bikes! and if you have hundreds of people doing this, you'll be unstoppable!

I like it. You may want to wear protective goggles instead of the masks though.

Great idea and so obvious yet nobody ever did it before. We have walkathons for cancer and diabetes, why not a bikeathon for peace? Love it!

pigs will attack bikers just like pedestrians.

The Guy Fawkes mask is already the symbol of Anonymous, this movement needs a symbol all its own

but what if the idea is that we're all behind anonymous, that it doesn't matter who anonymous is because we're all part of the 99%?

Anonymous does good things they also do bad things, unfortunately the bad things are all that has been highlighted to the masses so there is a negative social stigma attached to the mask.

Dose this movement need to have that stigma attached to it, and have to work off that stigma before it is able to do good?

hmm good point. i just thought it would be really riveting to have a mass of people in business suits and masks, maybe not guy fawkes masks, maybe we could represent the business men on wall street and wear really ugly masks like in that twilight zone episode

also check the laws of NY, it might be illegal to wear a mask in public except on designated days, like Halloween, there are laws like that in citys across the country to "prevent" robbery.

right. but are they going to arrest hundreds of people...on bikes?

[-] 1 points by revg33k (429) from Woodstock, IL 2 years ago

they will

why havent they arrested everyone occupying wall street then when theyre doing so without a permit? i know the bike ride seems like taking it to the next level but its still just blocking traffic the only distance is people are on bikes and wearing masks. they can have walking escorts with hands up to signify no weapons

that might be a good way around it, another good one is to notify the police of the intent to do the ride beforehand not ask for permission just tell them.
