Many say that there is no truth the rumors that an Anonymous-backed protest called “Day Of Rage” will take place tomorrow, but some military sources have issued warnings advising caution.
Social media has been abuzz with rumors that a major protest called “Day Of Rage” backed by the hacker collectivist group Anonymous will take place in major cities across the country on July 15. Some believe that the rumored protests would be a way for Anonymous to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
Fact-checking group Snopes points out that the list of cities where “Day of Rage” protests are scheduled is identical to a list that circulated in 2014 after the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. No significant protest ever materialized on the promised day in 2014, leading most to consider the “Day of Rage” rumors to be false.
However, some military groups have urged caution. According to the New York Post, the U.S. Army has issued the following advisory: “Please be advised the [US Northern Command] has issued a threat advisory informing DOD personnel that a series of protests has been scheduled to be conducted across the United States on July 15, 2016.”
