(ANTIMEDIA) As #FreddieGray was laid to rest today, tensions in Baltimore swiftly escalated. High school students in #Baltimore circulated a meme calling for a #purge at 3pm EST, while Baltimore police circulated rumors that the gangs were uniting against them.

Governor Larry Hogan has declared a state of emergency, set a weeklong 10pm – 5am curfew, and activated the National Guard to respond to the (mostly) teenagers fighting for justice in Baltimore. The situation is still developing, but here’s some folks to follow that are on the ground, reporting live from the uprising in Baltimore.
We will update this list as new info comes in. In the meantime, all eyes on Baltimore!
