Black ops on GM critics, other social justice advocates reveal corporate-government collusion

Energy companies, biotech firms, business associations and globalists hire spies, police and mercenaries to scrutinize activists and thwart their activities.  Methods include infiltration, criminal trespass, theft, computer hacking, and creating false identities and fraudulent documents to smear labor unions, environmentalists, and other progressive groups. Greenpeace, Common Cause and Protect Our Elections are fighting back with lawsuits. (Embedded links added.) ~Ed.

Greenpeace finds itself in cross hairs

By Peter Huck

The first time Greenpeace USA realised they had a security problem was in April 2008 when Mark Floegel, senior investigator with the environmental organisation, took a call from a colleague.

“He told me Jim Ridgeway, a reporter with Mother Jones, was writing a piece and would call me for comment. I didn’t know what he was talking about,” Floegel said.

Ridgeway revealed Greenpeace had been “targeted” by a private security company and that a trove of sensitive documents was stashed in a Maryland storage locker.

Greenpeace, no stranger to black ops – covert, sometimes illicit and deniable operations – was about to get a window into an alleged nexus between corporate titans and private security companies.

The documents were stored by John Dodd, the millionaire heir to a local beer distributorship and the prime investor in a now-defunct private security company, Beckett Brown International.

The company was set up in 1995 after a chance meeting in a Maryland bar connected Dodd to several ex-Secret Service officers who wanted to get into private security. Dodd provided $700,000 on the proviso he owned BBI until it was repaid. Before long, business was booming.

By 2001, relations between Dodd and BBI had soured. When he learned staff were “sterilising the office”, shredding records before closing shop, Dodd drove a truck to the firm’s Maryland address and retrieved piles of documents.

Dodd began reading documents and, says Floegel, began to suspect “criminal activity” and contacted “victims”.

Greenpeace recovered 20 boxes of documents. They included confidential employee details such as email passwords, Social Security numbers, donor payments, privileged attorney-client conversations and strategic plans to fight climate change, ocean pollution, genetic engineering and other campaigns.

The boxes also had BBI work logs, plus documents sent to defendants and clients such as Wal-Mart, Halliburton, the National Rifle Association, the Carlyle Group and Monsanto. The documents, many posted on the Greenpeace USA site, make intriguing reading.

  3. There is an article of Michel Chossudovsky in spanish titled: “Fabricando Disidencia: Globalistas y Elites Controlan Movimientos Populares”.
    “Making dissidence: Globalist and elitist controls popular movement” you can use a traductor: http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=21206

    Financing dissidence is the best way to control the response.
    Look: Greenpeace had been financed by the rockefellers http://activistcash.com/organization_financials.cfm/o/131-greenpeace
