The hacktivist collective known as Anonymous has vowed to leak the identities of more than 1,000 members of the Ku Klux Klan. This is scheduled to occur on the one-year anniversary of the Ferguson protests.

Anonymous launched Operation KKK, or #OpKKK, after a KKK chapter threatened violence against people who protested the killing of Michael Brown Ferguson, Missouri. The group published a press release this week.

According to the press release:

Ku Klux Klan, we never stopped watching you. We know who you are … We never said we would only strike once … After closely observing so many of you for so very long, we feel confident that applying transparency to your organizational cells is the right, just, appropriate and only course of action … You are more than extremists. You are more than a hate group. You operate much more like terrorists and you should be recognized as such. You are terrorists that hide your identities beneath sheets and infiltrate society on every level.
