A group calling itself "Blackspot Collective" is publicizing its effort to begin a 50 day anti-Trump "siege" on the White House beginning September 17.
The group says the start date is designed to coordinate with the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The website for the group indicates it is anti-capitalist. It seeks to coordinate with other movements such was Black Lives Matter for the common goal uniting "against the scourge of capitalism."
Among its stated goals: "reverse the upward flow of wealth" and "punish every corporation that betrays the public trust." Also, the group says it will "not let Donald Trump steal this election" and discusses how to remove him from the White House, physically if necessary, after November 3.
Blackspot Collective is advertising to hire writers for its Vancouver based team.

Meantime, Blackspot's latest "Tactical Briefing" is below.
Today we are 10,000 strong. Tomorrow we will be 100,000. The day after next, we could amass a billion people — enough to spark a world revolution in how we live, love and think."Blackspot Collective"
Tactical Briefing #3
Alright you redeemers, rebels and radicals out there,
Trump is trying to steal the election . . . it’s got many of us pretty rattled . . . and things could turn very ugly very quickly as November 3rd approaches.
Lawyers are already in court, mounting pre-emptive strikes and preparing for the scorched-earth scenarios likely to come. Meanwhile white supremacists are waiting in the wings, spoiling for a violent showdown.
You can laugh, but the possibility of a civil war breaking out sometime next year is no joke.
With a lot of luck, it may not come to that. Biden, polling well ahead right now, could win by a landslide. Trump may then fade quietly into history.
But if the election is close and Trump refuses to leave, then who is going to make him go? Barr’s Justice Department? The Supreme Court? The D.C. police? The Marines?
If the mechanisms of American democracy fail then it will fall on us, the people, to set things right . . . and to do that, we need more than viral memes, frenetic Tweeting and fervent calls to action — We need a fucking strategy!
So . . . all you #METOOers, #BLM activists, Extinction Rebels, Sunrisers, and CodePinks out there: it's time for us to start talking to each other and coordinating our actions.
Together we can organize pop-up sieges at federal buildings in dozens of cities . . . maybe even launch a national art project to decorate the streets with stunning visual memes.
And we could make sure that activists turn up in Washington, D.C. in ever increasing numbers as the election approaches.
Lafayette Square may be cordoned off and military police will doubtless be there in full force. But what can they do if hundreds of thousands of us turn up all over the nation's capital, day after day, and start playing totally non-violent improvisational jazz . . . much like we did in Zuccotti Park nine years ago?
#WhiteHouseSiege has an ominous ring to it. But it could turn out to be the most beautiful, festive, and effective uprising that America has seen since the Revolution.
Together, with history watching, we can electrify the election season — and win.
