Videos: Million Mask March protester alleges police brutality

Yesterday was Guy Fawkes Day, and to mark the occasion, people across the globe took to the streets to take part in what was dubbed the Million Mask March.

In Denver, protesters, many of them wearing Fawkes masks, rallied downtown -- but when they marched on the City & County Building, the cops intervened. The result was six arrests and a claim of police brutality by at least one videographer.

Look below to see the footage, additional videos and photos.
