This November 5, the “Million Mask” march is held in London, bringing together protesters to denounce government corruption in England.
The Million Mask March takes place in London on November 5, when protesters gather to denounce global corporations, government corruption, police brutality and systematic racism. The event takes place on the same day that a nationwide lockdown is put into effect in an attempt to curb Covid-19.
From this day until 2 December, people across the UK are only allowed to leave home for essential reasons such as work, education and essential shopping. People from different households also cannot meet inside or outside, with few exceptions.
Somagnews recalls that the “Million Masks March”, called by Anonymus, is famous for presenting protesters wearing Guy Fawkes masks, adopted by the collective of the graphic novel “V for Vendetta.” Anti-closure protesters by Covid-19 have said they will join this year’s march.
