Area 51 Raid

Piper Pennington

Recently, the internet has exploded over a Facebook event posted to raid Area 51 saying, “They can’t stop us all.”

When Matty Roberts first created the event, he did not believe that anyone would take it seriously.  The raid was initially occurring today at Area 51 until Roberts posted another event, changing from raiding Area 51 to hosting a music festival in Nevada close to where Area 51 is located. After viewing the memes online and posts saying that people were actually buying their plane ticket to Nevada, he decided it was best to change the event.

People have already been arrested for trying to participate in the raid, and the small towns located around Area 51 are preparing for what looks like an apocalypse because of all the people they are expecting.
