Leaked Documents Reveal Counterterrorism Tactics Used at Standing Rock to “Defeat Pipeline Insurgencies”

In this special edition of e.Woke we share a compelling Intercept article revealing what really happened at Standing Rock. Journalists, Alleen Brown, Will Parrish, and Alice Speri, expose how the mercenary group, TigerSwan, the FBI, and local police agencies used militarized digital surveillance tactics on the NODAPL Water Protectors. Is this what activists may be facing under the Trump administration? This article reports that TigerSwan has started targeting activist networks and monitoring “anti-Trump” protests.
