Protests against lockdown orders taking place in several states are being organized in groups and events on Facebook, but the platform has started taking down content that advocates violations of social-distancing guidelines.

Business Insider has found that protesters are moving their organizing efforts to MeWe, a social media platform that says it prides itself on user privacy.

The site's founder says it doesn't accept "lawbreakers and people promoting threats and violence," but Business Insider found more than a dozen examples of popular groups that encouraged breaking state-issued shelter-in-place orders.
