Million Mask March 2016 across the globe

Anonymous activists take to the streets around the world for Million Mask March, an annual event held on November 5.

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.

RT brings you live coverage of the 750-city global event against billionaire bankers and injustice.

Watch RT’s footage of the protest in London.
