INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS REPORT IS PROPRIETARY AND SENSITIVE DO NOT RELEASE OUTSIDE OF AUTHORIZED AND APPROVED RECIPIENTS The Highlights With the clearing of Camp 2, Rosebud and the subsequent clearing of the remaining southern camps, (as soon as Monday) the threat level has dropped significantly. This however does not rule out the chance of future attack, on the site or possibly the vehicles to and from the site. We think the most likely course of action at this point is to disperse and re-group as the weather permits. AS with any dispersion of any insurgency, expect bifurcation into splinter groups, looking for new causes. The internal Standing Rock Sioux affairs will most likely selfdestruct from within due to the turbulence between leaders. (or lack of) A special mention to all of the LE Men & Women who made this possible. . The Details 1. NORTH DAKOTA FUSION CENTER i. ii. iii. Intel Update a. The clearing of Camp 2, with the addition of newly established laws stemming from the protests, gave a detrimental blow to overall protester movement in ND. Several protesters are travelling to other camp locations on the reservation lands, as indicated by their social media activity. The diminished footprint created by the closing of Camp 2 and the shift of protesters to the south side of the Cannon Ball River, decrease the threat of violent direct action to HDD-West. b. The displacement of protesters may increase the threat to other locations along the DAPL, though it will be difficult for protesters to amass large groups. Small groups may feel a sense of desperation, especially if they discern oil is in the pipeline, and attempt to sabotage locations of opportunity, specifically valve sites. Increased activity along the DAPL may be identified by individuals with hostile intent due to the close proximity to roadways, specifically ND State Highway 6, a roadway regularly used by protesters. Past 24 Hours a. Law enforcement cleared Camp 2, resulting in the arrest of 46 protesters without any reported incidents of violent aggression. After the clearing of Camp 2, the Bureau of Indian Affairs cleared Camp 3. b. ND Governor signed four bills, stemming from the DAPL protests, that take immediate effect. Next 24 Hours a. Continued monitoring of Open Source information, ISR feeds, and other sources of information to provide accurate assessments of protester activities which may impact DAPL operations TigerSwan Prepared for Energy Transfer Partners 1
