A day after midterm elections and on the eve of the AFI film festival the activist group Anonymous descended upon Highland Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard around 1:00 p.m. with a Global Million Mask March. It was a group of more than 75 people. Many of the participants were protesting a vast array of social problems. The group said the march was one of more than five dozen planned across the country.
