Wednesday 5 November saw the biggest Million Mask March London has ever seen in the three years since its inception. Thousands of protestors poured down Whitehall to Parliament Square, which has been fenced off since the Occupy Democracy protest turned walking on the grass into a revolutionary act.
Ten arrests followed clashes, as protesters tore down fences and tried to reclaim Parliament Square for the democratic right to protest, moved on to Buckingham Palace to show disgust for the monarchy and then on the central London studios of the BBC, where the public funded news and television organisation was criticised for its news coverage and accused of covering up the Jimmy Savile child abuse scandal.

Saturday 21 June 2014: 50,000 people marched through London to protest against austerity and the ruling coalition government.
The BBC was heavily criticised for not covering the largest anti-government demonstration for several years. It did however start coverage from 8pm that evening, but not before a deluge of social media condemnation of the publicly funded institution from across the globe.
Placards and banners highlighted a myriad of issues from tax avoidance and evasion to the bedroom tax and welfare cuts, education and NHS privatisation to calls for an end to the funding off the Trident nuclear weapons program.
