Million Mask March draws thousands in London on global day of protest

At least five people have been arrested after protests in central London broke into scuffles.

Protesters have been gathering in cities around the world under the banner of the Million Mask March, promoted by the loosely organised internet activist group Anonymous but attracting a range of participants including supporters of anti-capitalist, anti-war and pro-Palestine movements.

London was the scene of one of the largest as thousands, many wearing the Guy Fawkes masks which have become a symbol of Anonymous, gathered in Parliament Square on Wednesday night and later made their way in groups towards other locations including Buckingham Palace and the BBC’s central London studios.
