“Remember, Remember the 5th of November…” goes the Guy Fawkes' verse popularized by the Anonymous hacker collective and the film "V for Vendetta."

Today, thousands of Anonymous members and supporters join demonstrations across the world’s major cities to support net neutrality and stand against Internet regulation and other government measures to increase online surveillance and monitoring.

The Million Mask March has become an annual gathering to promote hacktivism around the world.

In the U.S., Anonymous supporters are protesting outside the FBI headquarters and the White House.


Anonymous has also set up a map for supporters to join the march in their respective cities and towns.


Some of the biggest turnouts are in Europe, especially on the streets of London and Berlin.


Latin Americans have also joined the protests, from Mexico City to Santiago de Chile and Buenos Aires, Argentina.


Protests have also taken place in the Philippines and Hong Kong.


The demonstrations are being branded in social media through the #MillionMaskMarch hashtag which has become a trending topic world wide.
