The protester security is actively patrolling local highways and pipeline work areas in search of DAPL employees. Yesterday?s protest in support of? the AIM member incarcerated in the Morton County Jail, was a controlled event. The security for the protestors was provided by the Red Warrior Tribal security forces, who demonstrated military and law enforcement tactics. As the protester security gains additional knowledge of security tactics and operations, the ability to gather information about planned protests will diminish. Information control within the camp, despite causing dissention, makes any internal source information dif?cult to acquire. Furthermore, the presence of additional Palestinians in the camp, and the movement?s involvement with Islamic individuals is a dynamic that requires further examination. Currently there is no information to Prepared for Energy Transfer Partners 2
