More than 50 arrested after thousands of protesters attended Million Mask March

From the Telegraph:

"Thousands of people descended on central London for the Million Mask March which saw police make 10 arrests.

Walking from Trafalgar Square, where the march started, protesters holding flares chanted "Whose streets? Our Streets!" as they made their way to Westminster.

Clad in Guy Fawkes masks, thousands of supporters of Anonymous, the anarchic hacking collective, carried placards as they made their way through the Capital while scores of police officers maintained a tight perimeter around them."

"One protester, a history student at Greenwich, Sarah Gosney-Davies said: "People are not happy with the way things are in this country.

"There has been a huge rise in unemployment and homelessness and I want to see Theresa May and her unelected government out.

"Wages have stayed the same and the cost of living had increased.

"People are starting to realise that things aren't right."

A 63-year-old, who counted the march as her third, said: "About ten years ago I realised the system is corrupt and ever since I have been following anonymous.

"This world has to change and the government does not represent us."

The annual protest is one of many similar marches held worldwide on November 5. Its agenda is broadly anti-capitalism and pro-civil liberty."
