Anonymous Declares Friday 11 December As 'Troll Isis Day' On Social Media #TrollingDay

Anonymous is asking for people's help in their effort to mock ISIS on Friday 11 December. The hackivist group announced the declaration in a Ghostbin post saying, "We ask you to show your support and help against ISIS by joining us and trolling them. Do not think you have to be apart of Anonymous, anyone can do this and does not require any special skills. We ask to take part of this on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, and in the 'Real World.'"

The group ask people to post the photos under the hashtags #Daesh and #Daeshbags and lists the types of images you could choose to make. It's a mass trolling event basically, and the group want to humiliate ISIS to help dilute their fear-mongering rhetoric and propaganda.

Anonymous explain:

You may be wondering why we are 'trolling' Isis and planning all these demonstrations against Isis. But to understand that you must first see how Isis works. They thrive off of fear they hope that by their actions they can silence all of us and get us to just lay low and hide in fear. But what many forget and even they do is that there are many more people in the world against them than for them. And that is the goal of this mass uprising, on December 11th we will show them that we are not afraid, we will not just hide in our fear, we are the majority and with our strength in numbers we can make a real difference. We will mock them for the idiots they are. We will show them what they really are they do not stand for a religion, they do not stand for a god, they are brainwashers teaching from the young to the old their propaganda against the "west" when in reality they are just increasing the distance between countries by giving many a bad name. But we see behind their persona, we see them for who they really are. And we hope to see you all brothers and sisters on December 11th.

It comes after members of 4chan photoshopped pictures of ISIS soldiers and leaders placing rubber ducks on their heads. And also follows Anonymous declaring "war" on ISIS after the Paris attacks, targeting ISIS' social media accounts used to spread propaganda.
