Group that led Facebook boycott is back with new action – CNN

Civil rights groups including the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the NAACP are among other things calling on companies and high profile users to stop posting on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook (FB), for a day this week to protest its parent company’s handling of hate and its allowing politicians lie in political ads.
Announcing the campaign on Monday morning, the groups focused on Facebook’s failure to remove a page that encouraged armed Americans to take to the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, in the aftermath of the shooting of Jacob Blake.

“Our organizations as well as other experts have been warning Facebook for years about the problem of dangerous, potentially violent groups and individuals using Facebook. But time and time again they’ve failed to listen,” the group said.
