With the 5th of November here again the #MillionMaskMarch has begun, so far at least 750 cities worldwide are experiencing the march with more to follow soon.
The Anonymous movement has gathered every November 5 since 2012, to coincide with the annual British tradition of Bonfire Night, which began when a group of dissident Catholic plotters tried to blow up the British parliament in 1605. Activists wear Guy Fawkes masks popularized by the movie ‘V for Vendetta’ to protest corruption, censorship, inequality and war, often marching to the parliamentary buildings. Although the Anonymous supporters are peacefully protesting they are often met with violent opposition as governments attempt to suppress their message and disperse crowds. Already riot police have been sent into Trafalgar Square in attempts to disperse the peaceful protesters, and arrests have already been made.
According to LatestAnonNews on twitter, the #MillionMaskMarch in Washington, D.C the protestors are showing their support for #NoDAPL, while police are attempting to lead the protestors away during a standoff.
Riot police have been awaiting the arrival of the protestors at the D.C capital sites, and since their arrival have been attempting to lead the protestors away during the standoff at the White House, and Washington Monument. So far few arrests have been made in
It appears the mainstream media are all completely ignoring this worldwide protest, from Rome, Milan, Paris, and Sydney to Toronto and Washington. Only RT News running a short segment about the #MillionMaskMarch, and the BBC covering the London #MillionMaskMarch. How could it be that a worldwide protest such as this could go by without the media attention? Perhaps it is the message that the Anons are attempting to spread, that media organizations are attempting to suppress.
