'Rally Picketing Keystone Central School District' Organized

Members of Keystone Central School District are angry administrators didn't do anything when Aaron Fisher, formerly known as Jerry Sandusky's Victim 1, first came forward with his report of sexual abuse. 

Now, they're demanding change. 

Only days after Fisher, 18, gave his first public interview on the ABC News program '20/20,' on Friday, a Facebook group popped up. 'Rally Picketing Against Keystone Central School District' drew 730 members in less than 24 hours and is using the social media outlet as a way to promote the week's events. 

According to the Facebook group, on Tuesday a meeting will be held in the afternoon to discuss the 'peaceful protest.' 

"This is a picket organization meeting to 'Picket Keystone Central school district' to be held accountable for their actions and to stop the bullying and [promote] safe schools. Remember, don't let what happened to Aaron happen to our children," Frank Fox, a creator of the group, wrote. 

Fisher said in his '20/20' interview that after finally coming forward to levy charges of abuse against Sandusky, he was ultimately bullied out of school. 

The bullying came after his school principal didn't believe Fisher when he told her he was being sexually abused by Sandusky. 

Karen Probst, the current principal at Central Mountain High School who was there when Fisher attended, did not return requests for comment. 

Posts on the Facebook page say that at 7 p.m. on Saturday night, there will be a candlelight vigil for Fisher and the rest of Sandusky's victims. 

The 240-page book Fisher wrote, titled, "Silent No More: Victim 1's Fight for Justice Against Jerry Sandusky" hits shelves on Tuesday. 

Sandusky, 68, was sentenced to 30-60 years in prison, a sentence Judge John Cleland said would keep him behind bars for life. The defense team has since filed an appeal
