In the interview crow bares all in his most comprehensive conversation about FBI informant Brandon Darby, their complicated relationship and the fallout from Brandon’s actions personally and politically in wider movements.
Part two is an essay by Kristian Williams “Profiles of Provocateurs” which analyzes recent case studies of the use of agents provocateurs in political prosecutions, offers some warning signs of agents in these cases and practical advice on taking care of ourselves in the face of repression.
