Hacktivists aligned with the Anonymous collective have declared a “day of solidarity” with the Black Lives Matter movement in protest of police brutality, according to a video statement posted to YouTube.

The video, which contains graphic footage showing the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile at the hands of US police, lists the date of the action as 15 July and states that cyberattacks and non-violent demonstrations are planned.

“Anonymous has declared a day of action in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and the victims of police brutality as well as alongside the families of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile,” the statement reads.

“We are calling on a collective day of rage. A day of action centred around civil disobedience and the right to protest. To police departments across the United States. We are not your enemy. However, it is in your hands if you want us to stay that way or not. We will not be silenced and we will not be intimidated.”
