We’ve had quite a few readers write us today about the rumored “National Day of Rage” protest on Queen Anne. Many non-official outlets are circulating a list of cities where these protests are taking place, and the Seattle location is listed as the Queen Anne Baptist Church at 2011 1st Ave N.

The protest is scheduled for 4pm today. However, there are conflicting reports on what group is sponsoring this protest, with Snopes concluding:

“It’s virtually impossible to say who specifically began “Day of Rage” rumors calling for protests across the U.S. on 21 August. However, the @OpFerguson account and the @YourAnonNews account do not appear to be organizing or endorsing the actions mentioned in the circulating emails and Facebook posts.”

If you’re in the area today around 4pm – it’s a block away from the Queen Anne Farmers Market – heads up that there may or may not be a crowd.
