Hundreds of angry high school students in Sweden mounted an angry protest Tuesday after an anonymous user posted stolen photos of teen “sluts,” some as young as 13 years old.

According to The Local, the demonstration at Plusgymnasiet High School in Gothenburg drew more than 100 teens, some of whom allegedly threw rocks at police and jumped on cars before dispersing.

The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reported that the gathering was instigated by “sexaktiviteter” an anonymous account on the photo site Instagram that invited users to contribute “pictures of sluts.” The account quickly amassed more than 7,000 followers, and more than 200 images being submitted, along with accusations of sexual activity, or “slut-shaming.”

One 17-year-old boy who wished to stay anonymous said he was informed by friends via text message that pictures of him were sent to the account.

“They wrote that they saw that I was on the site, he told the newspaper. “I was shocked and tried to contact the person or who was behind the account, but no one answered.”

One 16-year-old girl, Ebba, said pictures of her on the account said she liked to “sleep with everyone.” Her family threatened to report the incident to authorities after she told them what had happened.

The backlash against “sexaktiviteter,” which included threats of violence and at least one threat of suicide, led to the account being shut down, only for a similar one to appear on Facebook. When a 17-year-old girl who attends the school was identified online as the person behind the account, another Facebook page was started to organize the demonstration.

Police did take an unidentified female student in for questioning regarding the account, but it has not been confirmed if she is the same person targeted by the protest.

Any support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
