Guise of Fawkes, a Mardi Gras krewe founded by members of Occupy The Stage, will march in krewedelusion 2015 and at other times!

To join Guise of Fawkes, you must contact the Captain – small affair.

To march in krewedelusion, you must pay dues to krewedelusion, which you can do on the krewedelusion website AFTER contacting the Captain of Guise of Fawkes.

Guise of Fawkes is a revolution themed krewe that parades with krewedelusion and at other times of the year and honors arrested anons, whistle-blowers, and political prisoners. Our themes involve protesting corporate corruption, and our demonstrations raise awareness to carry on the work of those who sacrificed their freedom for all of us.

If you’ll be in New Orleans during the 2014 Mardi Gras season and are interested in joining, please read our bylaws and contact Guise of Fawkes at guiseoffawkes@gmail.com or occupythestagenola@gmail.com

Guise of Fawkes has a Tumblr blog and a Facebook page and Twitter account, but we don’t really check our Facebook page, so please contact us by email if you don’t know how to find us.

Occupy NOLA 
has its own 
website here!   To our knowledge, Occupy NOLA no longer meets. We have all the minutes of every GA meeting, including the ones at which the people operating the hijacked Occupy New Orleans Facebook page were disbarred for theft and sabotage. If people want to start having General Assemblies again, they should find small affair and ask her for access to the Occupy NOLA website, which she may share with you at her discretion. We have nothing to do with Facebook Events posted on the Hijacked Occupy New Orleans Facebook page, and nobody ever shows up for those huge marches promoted by someone living in Florida. We’re busy working with actual New Orleanians who are deeply invested in grassroots social justice causes.
