Masked activists are stopped by police Tuesday during a protest against corrupt governments and corporations in Madrid, Spain. The protest, one of many held worldwide as the “Million Mask March,” was organized by members of Anonymous, WikiLeaks, The Pirate Party, Occupy Wall Street and other hacktivist movements. Demonstrators donned Guy Fawkes masks as they marched on political landmarks and institutions around the world. Nov. 5 marks Guy Fawkes Day, the day in 1605 when English authorities arrested the leader of the “Gunpowder Plot” during a plot to blow up the country’s Houses of Parliament.
