On Social Media, the anti-government groups are using the Guy Fawkes masks in their campaign against the alleged Thaksin Regime and Yingluck Shinawatra's Government.

The Guy Fawkes mask was made famous by the "V for Vendetta" movie in 2005 made by Andy and Lana Wachovski. It became an international symbol of anarchism and revolution. From the 15M movement in Spain, to the Occupy movement in the US and many other groups in the Arab Spring uprising and beyond, the mask has become what the "V for Vendetta" comic's illustrator David Lloyd described as a "placard to use in protest against tyranny." In some Middle Eastern countries, governments were so concerned about protesters wearing the mask, they issued a ban on it. Bahrain became the second Gulf state to outlaw the masks in February. Anyone trying to get around this ban could, potentially, be arrested. Saudi Arabia's Ministry of the Interior ordered last week the immediate confiscation and destruction, and prohibited the import and sale, of all Guy Fawkes masks. The masks promotes "a culture of violence and extremism," and "encourages young people to breach security and spread chaos in society." Canada's House of Commons approved a bill that banned citizens from hiding their faces or wearing masks during disturbances, in response to last year's Stanley Cup Riots in Vancouver where masked vandals smashed and set fire to the city after the team lost to the Boston Bruins. However, the bill does not apply to law-abiding protesters at peaceful demonstrations.

In Thailand, at first glance, it seemed the masks were being used by anti-Thaksin groups to draw attention. But a week later, the Guy Fawkes white mask campaign gained more support from people and finally they came out to rally on the streets last weekend. The rally ended peacefully.

The Thai government, hopefully, will not be overly worried about the power of the mask and try to suppress the ongoing protests in the country by following what the other countries did.
