On 6 August 2016, OSINT research revealed that the U.S. established Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has present associations with international groups who allegedly support anti-Semitic and pro-radical Islamic groups. These connections indicate that the BLM movement is not an American grassroots organization, as originally described during the political activism and violent protests in Ferguson MO in November 2014. Research suggests that the BLM movement is supported and may be directed by international organizations in contrast to U.S. interests. Past research has reported on BLM activity before and during the RNC and DNC conventions in Cleveland OH and Philadelphia PA. We are providing this information for your situational awareness.
