Remember Remember The 5th of November Meaning?

What is the meaning of the sentence 'Remember Remember The 5th of November?'
I know it is part of history and I actually heard it the first time on the movie V for Vendetta. It's like a poem recited by Guy Fawkes.
But my question is, what does it really mean? Are the words 'Remember Remember The 5th of November' trying to be some sort of poem against the government at that time?
Can anyone explain to me what the phrase means?

The 5th of November is known throughout the United Kingdom and some parts of the Commonwealth as Guy Fawkes Day, or Bonfire Night.
Well, Fawkes was the leader of a Catholic plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament when it was in session and take over the country.
The full poem is based on his failed plot and how the idea of revolution still lives after all these years.
If you read the complete 'Remember Remember The 5th of November' poem, you'll get an idea of the meaning and what it is about.
