Washington D.C. — This Tuesday, protesters assembled at various sites across the world for a demonstration called “The Million Mask March.” The protests were not centered on one specific issue or event, but served as an outlet for people to voice their frustrations with the different institutions that control their lives.
Protests hit major cities worldwide, with some of the largest in London and Washington DC. During the protests in Washington DC, a group of masked Anonymous protesters stormed the FBI headquarters to face a group of terrified police officers.
At first, the police patrolling the building were caught off guard, and one or two officers came face to face with legions of angry protesters. One officer in the video is seen shaking in fear as he threatens the protesters with violence and arrest.
Eventually, the lone officers were joined by an army of cops who made a human wall to stop the protesters from entering the building. At one point, the protesters can be heard chanting “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” a remembrance to the case of Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager recently shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri.
After several minutes of shouting back and forth, the protesters dispersed and continued their march.
