Supporters of the Anonymous hacktivist collective are holding rallies all around the world on November 5, Guy Fawkes Day.

Event organizers planned to meet up at the Washington Monument at the National Mall and march on to Lafayette Park. Over 17,000 people plan on attending, according to the group’s Facebook page.

Protesters outside the White House in Washington DC have successfully negotiated with police to allow them to stay on the sidewalk. Chants of "No justice, No Peace" and "Obama come out, we got somethings to talk about " are intermittently ringing out.

Arguments over where the protesters can stand rage on, but the protesters have announced their arrival. One demonstrator on a megaphone was imploring other demonstrators to engage in acts of civil disobedience, but was seemingly met with a tepid response. Demonstrators are allowed three opportunities to obey a police order before they risk being detained.

Millions of people to gather in Washington to support Anonymous, WikiLeaks, Pirate Party, Occupy and others

A Million Masks March will be held in Washington on November 5. The action has no organizers. It brings together people who support Anonymous, WikiLeaks, the Pirate Party, the Occupy movement and other groups seeking social justice. Provocateurs are calling for taking President Obama hostage.

Andrew Kreig, the author of the book "Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney and Their Masters," who will be among the speakers at the event, said that the Million Masks March has no concrete organizer because anyone who values freedom and is committed to the principles of democracy can take part, hence no need for concrete organizers.

But it’s definitely a protest action for those who share the ideas of the Occupy movement, WikiLeaks, Anonymous and other organizations advocating peace, justice, openness and personal freedom and opposing violence, Kreig said.

Citizen's Action for re-election of US govt' - Andrew Kreig

On the eve of the Nov. 5th Million Mask March global event there are efforts to disrupt it. The newly-emerged rogue breakaway "Citizen's Action" group has declared it is planning to "arrest" the United States President, Congress and US Supreme Court justices on criminal charges. Citizen's Action, now being disowned by members of the Anonymous movement, says they intend to hold Obama et al, "without bond until a full independent investigation and trial have been completed," adding that they "must re-elect our government within 90 days in order to stave off unrest." In an exclusive interview for the Voice of Russia Andrew Kreig, an Yale Law graduate and a legal reform advocate and the Director of the Justice and Integrity Project, is to talk about the upcoming march and its implications for the future of the US power system. Listen LIVE at 9 pm Moscow Time (5 pm GMT).

The massive March, now being referred to as the largest world protest in history, will be held in over 400 locations worldwide and is a peaceful, non-violent event to help bring about government transparency and awareness of political corruption.

Participants are encouraged but not obliged to wear masks. Since Anonymous is a movement with no leaders, the event does not have an official web page or leaders. "Nobody is in charge: it's a movement, not an organization," states MillionMaskMarch.org.

Christine Ann Sands, owner of MillionMaskMarch.org an Facebook.com/MillionMaskMarch, has obtained a permit to hold the action at the DC Washington Monument. Sands has been heavily criticiized for obtaining permission.

Another DC organizer, John Anthony Fairhurst, has also obtained a permit but he did so under the name of his cousin Robert Clapp for Lafayette Park. Unlike Sands, who plans to remain at the Monument from 9am till 9pm with speakers, musicians and dancers, Fairhurst is directing others to meet at the Monument and then proceed to Lafayette Park, the same course of action being taken by the Citizen's Action group. Fairhust has not responded to Voice of Russia's request for comment.

One Citizen's Action Facebook page reads, "John Anthony Fairhurst and I would like to announce that the March on D.C. will be joining forces with the Million Mask March to show our strength in numbers, our solidarity, our passion as citizens of this country and the world to show that we are sick of what is going on in this world and refuse to stand for it any longer. We will join on the 5th of November, stand together and our voices WILL be heard.

Sands has united with Director of Justice Integrity Project and author of "Presidential Puppetry: Obama, Romney and Their Masters Andrew Kreig for the Monument event. Join us in the studio for more insight on this global event, listen LIVE at 9 pm Moscow Time (5 pm GMT).
