Dozens hit streets as 'Million Mask March' takes hold in Tucson

By Maggie Vespa. CREATED Nov 5, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A worldwide movement marched through downtown Tucson Tuesday.

 
Dozens, wore strange disguises and masks in the name of social justice.
 
It's called the 'Million Mask March', and it's took hold in cities around the world.
 
80 to 100 local demonstrators kicked off their 'Million Mask March' at City Hall, then marched through downtown to Armory park.
 
Their message is similar to that of the Occupy movement.
 
Complaints range from NSA surveillance, to government corruption, to the economy.
 
They hope a march like this, in masks resembling the one in the movie 'V for Vendetta', will send a message.
 
 
"It's not about money," said marcher Anthony Lui.  "It's not about greed.  It's about real people, and we're tired of it.  We're tired of being stepped on."
 
 
 
 
Protestors say that message is especially strong on Election Day.
 
The event, organized by a group called 'Anonymous', scheduled it for November 5th to commemorate Guy Fawkes Day in Great Britain, the annivesary of an infamous failed attempt to bomb Parliament back in 1605.
