Police have imposed an order banning thousands of protesters from wearing masks at tonight’s Anonymous “Million Mask March” in London.
The Metropolitan Police Service has issued a Section 60AA across Westminster between 5pm on Wednesday, 5 November, and 2am on Thursday.
It means police will be able to demand protesters remove the distinctive Guy Fawkes mask worn by online movement group Anonymous’s supporters.
Thousands of demonstrators are expected to descend upon the capital tonight for an event that has been advertised with the slogan “Remember, remember…”.
They are expected to occupy Trafalgar Square from around 6pm and march towards Westminster and the Houses of Parliament.
