INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS REPORT IS PROPRIETARY AND SENSITIVE DO NOT RELEASE OUTSIDE OF AUTHORIZED AND APPROVED RECIPIENTS The Highlights DAPL business operations resumed with the initiation of drilling operations at 1822 CST on 08FEB2017. Almost immediately following, protestor Social Media in vicinity of the camps went silent. There is widespread belief among protestors that LE is monitoring, as well as jamming and collecting cellphone traffic from OP11. Continued fears of raids are diminishing the population of Camp 2, as native personnel are moving to Fort Yates and Mobridge, while non-native personnel head to Bismarck and the Prairie Knights Casino. Continuation of nonviolent direct action efforts is being reconsidered and conflicting leadership rhetoric in camps is causing mounting frustration among protestors. The Details A.

The start of drilling was a massive blow to the morale of the protestors, with many fleeing to stay at the Prairie Knights Casino, fearing a raid would be launched on Camp 2 and Camp 4 in combination with drilling commencement. c. Shiye Bidzel has asked everyone in Camp to remove themselves from Facebook and to maintain a low digital footprint. This likely stems from the belief that all protestor cell phones are being targeted, and will be used as evidence, for future arrests. Remaining protestors are acutely aware of LE infiltration, and the monitoring of Social Media, seeing themselves as increasingly vulnerable to prosecution. d. Veteran protestors have again called for the use of high powered lasers against aircraft and observation posts, specifically against N16757. The justification being, if a laser is used to injure a pilot, the investigation will reveal illegal flights are being made against protestors. While totally oblivious to the reality of FFA regulations, this does pose a threat to flight crews and security forces. iii. TigerSwan Past 24 Hours a.
