If there is a lesson to be learned in the movement/cause/whatever from the last year, it’s that infiltration is rampant. Whether we want to admit it or not, the feds have the money, the personnel, and the training to not only infiltrate our groups and actions, but in some instances even pull off operations that run a lot longer and endanger a lot more people.
What is to be done about this? It’s pretty simple: Folks need to learn how to better recognize an infiltration when they see one.
To that end, we’ll be offering a webinar on infiltration, focusing on how it’s done, why it’s effective, and how to guard against it. It’s not going to give you a list of names, or some kind of magic formula. What it WILL do, is teach you how to think through the process, and recognize the signs. In addition, I’ll show you how to avoid putting yourself into already existing operations — and there are many.
In addition, I’ll talk about some of the current tactics that people are using to find and expose informants and agents, and why they’re ineffective. We will go over several cases of known informants, and explain how they were able to get in, and why they were able to stay so long.
Our hope is that after this webinar, you’ll be a lot more cognizant of things that don’t fit, and you may find yourself looking at things much differently. In fact, the whole purpose is exactly that — to teach you how to think in a way that will keep you and your groups safe.
We hope to offer this course starting next month; stay tuned for details.
