Black Lives Matter Spied On By Corporate Security Firm — Lableled Them A 'Threat' and Recommended 'Action'

The report mentions the "security" corporation's "intelligence partners" based at the Fort Meade Army base. The report indicates that at least 249 activists and protesters were under surveillance by the corporation which was apparently hired by government officials.  Government organizations use private "security firms" to spy on citizens so the government can claim that it does not engage in such unconstitutional activities.


Peaceful organizers Johnetta Elzie (left) and DeRay Mckesson (who made several appearances on CNN) were both labeled as "high" severity, "physical," and "#mostwanted" threats. Black activists get far more scrutiny from government agencies and private "security firms" than the heavily armed and violent KKK, skinheads, white militias and other racist- supremacist groups. Private "security firms" are used to spy on Americans so the government can claim it does not spy on the legal political activities of its citizens.

Documents from a "crisis management" report produced by the cybersecurity firm ZeroFox indicate that the firm monitored Black Lives Matter protesters during the Freddie Gray protests in Baltimore earlier this year. The documents, which surfaced online last Wednesday, also state that the firm "protected" the online accounts of Maryland and Baltimore officials and members of the Baltimore Police Department and Maryland National Guard.

Harlem Suarez (left) allegedly expressed support for ISIS on Facebook and that was enough for the FBI to send provocateurs to trap him in a "terror plot" initiated by the FBI itself. Meanwhile Dylann Roof (right) was posting racist manifestos with this picture holding the pro-slavery battle flag on social media and he went untouched by the FBI's army  of social media watchers, informants and provocateurs, costing the lives of nine black church goers, including a member  of the South Carolina legislature.

The report identifies DeRay McKesson and Johnetta Elzie, two prominent Black Lives Matter organizers who took part in the Baltimore protests, as "threat actors" for whom "immediate response is recommended." It describes McKesson and Elzie as "high" severity, "physical," and "#mostwanted" threats and notes both have a "massive following" on social media. It says that ZeroFox was engaged in "continuous monitoring" of their social media accounts and specifies their geographical locations at the time of the report. The report does not suggest that the pair were suspected of criminal activity but were "main coordinators of the protests."

In emails exchanged in April, ZeroFox's CEO, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlins-Blake's chief of staff, and the president of the Maryland chapter of an FBI intelligence partnership program discussed ZeroFox's potential surveillance "help" for Baltimore. These emails were released to the Baltimore Sun last week following a public records request. The emails also indicate that ZeroFox "briefed our classified partners" at the Fort Meade Army base in Maryland on "intelligence" it had collected during the Gray protests. Other emails from the Baltimore Police Department indicate the department had collected "intelligence regarding potentially violent agitators."

The report on the Black Lives Matter organizers is dated the day after the Fort Meade briefing. It states that ZeroFox intended to "alert Baltimore PD on all monitoring threat actors and influencers." According to the leaked report, ZeroFox monitored 62 "threat actors" and 187 "threat influencers," including a Twitter user who was "a main local protest organizer" and another who was "sending supplies from New Jersey."
