SOCIETY BURNING – The Social Media Intelligence Unit, itself a project by Alliance4Europe, has produced a report called ‘Society burning’ and showing the intrusion of anti-Black Lives Matter forces into the movement, in order to discredit it, deflect the focus on structural and instititutional racism and also influence US voters…

The report was covered in the Belgian newspaper La Libre, in an article written by Christophe Lamfalussy and that notes that: “The Black Lives Matter case shows that the Internet, and notably social media space, appear as a battleground where Twitter (sometimes) provides disinformation with the existence of “click farms”. Facebook disseminates it through the trust it inspires in users, perpetuating “a secret belief among trusted friends” even though it also spreads false information. At the end of the day, there is ever growing confusion among citizens.”
