In Pics – Million Mask march passes off peacefully after huge police operation

Police made only 25 arrests as protesters wearing Guy Fawkes masks marched through London in an anti-capitalist Bonfire Night demonstration on Sunday evening.

Demonstrators chanted slogans and let off fireworks around Trafalgar Square and Downing Street, but otherwise there was little trouble, due to a huge police operation.

Since you’re here …

It may worry you that much of our mainstream press is increasingly reporting with a strong right-wing bias. Most of our media is owned by a handful of offshore billionaires with personal agendas.

More worrying is the staggering decline in independent, investigative journalism. It costs a lot to produce, so many publications facing an uncertain future can no longer fund it.

With nobody to hold the rich and powerful to account, or report on the issues that don't fit with the mainstream 'narrative', your help is needed.

You can help support free, independent journalism for as little as 50p. Every penny we collect from donations supports vital investigative journalism.
