Palestinians Supported Water Protectors at Standing Rock and Were Targeted by TigerSwan Mercenaries
By Brenda Norrell
When Palestinians joined the support of water protectors at Standing Rock in 2016, TigerSwan mercenaries targeted them, according to files leaked to The Intercept.
Now, in North Dakota, TigerSwan's documents include Palestinians, who were racially profiled by TigerSwan, and others targeted and stalked by the pipeline's mercenaries.
Today, there are 16,000 pages of TigerSwan's spy files from Standing Rock in a court battle before the North Dakota Supreme Court. A district court ruled these are public documents and ordered the release. The pipeline rushed to the higher court to keep these documents secret.

Elbit Shut Down in London Today -- Elbit Constructed Spy Towers on Tohono O'odham Nation

Elbit Systems built the spy towers on the Tohono O'odham Nation. Traditional O'odham opposed this, but the U.S. government and the Tohono O'odham Legislature approved the spy towers.
The US Border Patrol agents now use the live images from the spy towers to track and stalk O'odham on their homeland. The tower data is transmitted to the agents' laptops. The most vulnerable are isolated O'odham women, children and elderly, on the O'odham homeland on both sides of the border.
At the same time, three U.S. Border Patrol agents in this area -- the Tucson, Arizona, sector of the U.S. Border Patrol -- have been charged as serial rapists.
