FERGUSON, Mo. -- Anonymous hacktivists are threatening to reveal the names of 1,000 Ku Klux Klan members this month to coincide with the one-year anniversary of "Operation KKK," an Anonymous-led effort to shut down the group.

The group issued a statement promising the identities would be released through a Twitter account.

"After closely observing so many of you for so very long, we feel confident that applying transparency to your organizational cells is the right, just, appropriate and only course of action. You are abhorrent. Criminal. You are more than extremists. You are more than a hate group. You operate much more like terrorists and you should be recognized as such. You are terrorists that hide your identities beneath sheets and infiltrate society on every level. The privacy of the Ku Klux Klan no longer exists in cyberspace." -- Operation KKK

E-mail addresses and phone numbers were posted online on Monday, however the list only included 57 phone numbers and 23 email addresses.

The numbers and email addresses have not been verified.

The group promised to reveal the full list on Nov. 5, to coincide with the group's "Million Mask March."

The group also said they will shut down any websites and social media accounts connected to the white supremacist group.
