Homeland Security has produced a bulletin detailing how they should deal with the hactivist group Anonymous’ plan for a “National Day of Rage,” in response to the shooting of the unarmed Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. The “National Day of Rage” will span 38 major US cities.
As the bulletin reads:
The demonstrations are purported to protest the death of Mike Brown in Ferguson, MO, the subsequent police actions against protesters in the city as well as in support of the demonstrators demanding the prosecution of the identified police officer.
Currently there is no indication that protests are expected to become violent. However, recent protests in Ferguson have resulted in violence, property damage and subsequent arrests.
In 1969, domestic terrorist William Ayers, head of the Weather Underground, planned a “day of rage” in which violence and destruction of property would help bring about a Marxist and pacifistic society in opposition to American capitalism and the Vietnam War. Now a “day of rage” is being held nationwide for the shooting of Michael Brown.
The Homeland Security Bulletin reveals how police are being told to not violently engage non-violent protestors:
FPS personnel are reminded the Department of Homeland Security does not consider non-violent civil disobedience tactics to constitute criminal activities. Absent a specific actionable threat, you should refer to the list of suspicious activity indicators in identifying and mitigating threats.
In their video, Anonymous states:
We are Anonymous. We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us, once again.
What do you think? Will Anonymous’ “National Day of Rage” consist primarily of peaceful protestors? Or will there be enraged violence nationwide in response to the events in Ferguson, MO?
