The stated intent of “Veterans Respond” as a defensive effort to protect the camps has been highlighted in mainstream media articles, but indications of training and perimeter defense in Camps 2,4 and 7, will be evident as their presence continues. Divisions between the original protestor population and new arrivals to Camp 4 are beginning to come to a head, with many physical altercations, including fights being mentioned on Social Media. Friction is further mounting over the looting of equipment and residents of Camp 2 not aligning with new leadership. An unknown benefactor has been purchasing hotel rooms for some well-known protesters via social media requests, mirroring previously seen levels of support last year. Protestors, rather than gathering trash, have begun to move waste and refuse into abandoned structures, then setting fire to them from 0300 to 0500 to ensure it is not recorded on video. One of several open sewage pits and trash piles has become a health hazard, and people have been forced to move away from the northwest section of the camp. The Details A.
