We will remain faceless because we refuse the spectacle of celebrity, because we are everyone, because the carnival beckons, because the world is upside-down, because we are everywhere. By wearing masks we show that who we are is not as important as what we want, and what we want is everything for everyone [red bandana / neckerchief, worn to cover the face during anarchist demonstrations]

, n.p.. [200-], 18 inch square cloth with masked face at center and text around in English, Spanish, German and French. Somewhat creased and wrinkled; could presumably be ironed flat. These neckerchiefs were worn by Black Bloc demonstrators in Quebec in 2001, as well as at some other contemporary Black Bloc appearances. There are various rumors about these neckerchiefs circulating on the net and in a number of articles and books, such as that they were designed by an elderly Situationist, or that they were sewn by Argentinian women who had taken over their own factory. As far as we know such claims are all apocryphal, and these were most likely produced in a more routine way by some anonymous anarchist group.
