INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS REPORT IS PROPRIETARY AND SENSITIVE DO NOT RELEASE OUTSIDE OF AUTHORIZED AND APPROVED RECIPIENTS The Highlights The clean-up continues with interruptions from the protestors. The unusual warm weather will melt the remaining ice and facilitate our security efforts. . The Details 1. NORTH DAKOTA FUSION CENTER i. ii. TigerSwan Intel Update a. Recent recruiting efforts seem to be focused on out-of-state support. This may indicate local efforts are nearing exhaustion shown by the activity of the ND State Legislature and lack of the growth in the camps population given improvement in weather. The recruitment directed towards military veterans indicates a call for people with a military background and the expertise and equipment they provide. Additionally, an increase in military veteran support may increase the dissemination of anti-DAPL rhetoric. b. A newly established BIA checkpoint on Highway 1806 appears to be successful and actually well received by protesters. The checkpoint will aid in clean-up efforts by stopping protesters from bringing in more construction material and supplies to add to Camp 2. The incident with the dump truck driver almost being attack indicates there is some disagreement in the camp about the clean-up movement and may hinder the clean-up effort. The incident was resolved quickly without escalation, but signifies the tension in the camp. c. News crews in the camps interviewing protesters shed a spotlight on the cleanup efforts. This may change public perception about the support from local and state governments, which contradicts the protesters propaganda efforts Past 24 Hours a. Reporting indicates out-of-state recruiting efforts are being conducted through social media and posters. Some efforts are specifically targeting military veterans to act as “human shields”. b.

The incident was resolved without further escalation. d. Regional News network (ABC Eyewitness News at 5) reported in Camp 2 conducting interviews of protestors and filming the clean-up efforts.
