A post by what appears to be from the hacktivist group Anonymous is calling for a wave of anti-police Black Lives Matter protests in 37 cities in 26 states and Washington, D.C. at 7 p.m EDT Friday.
“ALL LIVES WONT [sic] MATTER UNTIL BLACK LIVES MATTER TOO,” declares the post on Pastebin.com. Another web site, D.C. Clothesline, attributes the coordinated protests as a “Day of Rage” called for by Anonymous.Pastebin.com is “a website where you can store any text online for easy sharing mainly used by programmers,” according to its frequently asked questions page. It’s impossible to tell how credible the post is, given Anonymous’ lack of formal organization.
“WE ARE AGAINST ALL FORMS OF POLICE BRUTALITY. WE ARE READY TO TAKE A STAND,” the post said. “WE ARE ANONYMOUS.” (VIDEO: Black El Paso Police Chief: BLM Is A ‘Radical Hate Group’)
A nearly identical call-to-arms posted shortly after Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson, Mo. was ultimately a false rumor, Snopes.com reported.
The post includes the exact address and local time for protesters to rally.
