Police are on the hunt for a group of 15 to 20 individuals who vandalized Facebook’s German headquarter in Hamburg over the weekend, leaving the building with damaged doors, windows, and defaced walls.

One wall near an entrance was marked with the words “Facebook Dislike” and while the identity of the vandals, who were seen wearing facemasks and dressed in all black, is still unknown, it appears be unrelated to the investigation into Facebook’s lack of action against hate speech on the social media site.

Shortly after the vandalism occurred, an anonymous comment was left on the website Linksunten stating that the act was done in protest of Facebook’s overpowering online presence.
