"Thousands of people wearing grinning, goateed Guy Fawkes masks turned out in central London Thursday for the annual 'Million Mask' protest that deteriorated into a shoving match with police as marchers strayed from the approved route through Central London. By early evening East Coast United States time, three officers with London's Metropolitan Police were taken to the hospital and 28 arrests had been made for public order offenses, one of them for assault of a police officer, police said via Twitter. Similar anti-establishment demonstrations promoted by the hacktivist group Anonymous were also planned in Washington, D.C., Madrid, The Philippines, Canada and Mexico. A website appearing to be authored by Anonymous claimed that protests were planned in 670 cities worldwide." (11/05/15)
