Anonymous protesters plan to wear burqas to maintain anonymity at G20
by Jackie Sinnerton and Neil Doorley
Anarchist movement Anonymous plans to wear burqas during G20 protests in Brisbane to circumvent laws that ban non-religious face coverings during the event.
Anonymous members, who usually cover their faces with trademark Guy Fawkes masks inspired by the graphic novel and movie V For Vendetta, are colluding to wear the religious garb, which is not on a prohibited list. And it can be revealed they could protest in the city as early as tomorrow.
However police have warned that demonstrators cannot "masquerade" behind religious headwear, and if required protesters wearing the burqa will be asked to reveal their identities.
