New details emerging from Steubenville are still vague and uncomfirmed. See The Steubenville Gang Rape for details on what happened in this horrific case as we know them right now. New accusations are coming from KnightSec, but I believe it's too early to pronounce these as fact until they've been further substantiated. However, for those of you hoping to support the young woman at the center of this case...

Online hacktivist group Anonymous is planning to hold a rally in Steubenville, Ohio, on Saturday to protest what it has called a conspiracy by some town members to protect local football stars accused of raping a 16-year-old girl in August.

The rally, which a cell of the shadowy hacker collective promoted on Twitter as #OccupySteubenville, is set to take place at the Jefferson County Courthouse at noon.

This is tomorrow at noon, people. Saturday, January 05, 2012, at the City Hall Court House. If you're in the Steubenville or Ohio area and can support them in any way, I'm sure the effort will be appreciated. Get the word out to anyone that might be interested.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
