Violence as anti-capitalist march hits London


LONDON: Activists set a police car alight and scuffled with riot police in central London as thousands took part in a “Million Mask March” anti-capitalist demonstration on Thursday night. An annual anti-establishment protest that takes place on Britain’s Bonfire Night, the march featured crowds of people wearing white masks intended to emulate Guy Fawkes, now associated with the international Anonymous network. Fawkes attempted to blow up parliament in 1605 to install a Catholic monarch, and Bonfire Night is commemorated annually to mark the failed “Gunpowder Plot.”
