Protesters gather around the world for Million Mask March

Protesters wearing the white-faced Guy Fawkes masks that have become synonymous with the Occupy movement and the hacktivist grouping Anonymous have taken part in hundreds of gatherings around the world in opposition to causes ranging from corruption to fracking.

Demonstrations in more than 400 cities had been planned as part of the event – billed as the “Million Mask March” – that coincided with Guy Fawkes Day.

One of the largest protests of Tuesday night took place in central London, where the comedian and advocate of “complete revolution” Russell Brand was pictured among crowds of people wearing a Guy Fawkes mask.
