DEA Can Secretly Surveil George Floyd Protesters

Jason Leopold and Anthony Cormier:

The Justice Department gave the agency the temporary power “to enforce any federal crime committed as a result of the protests over the death of George Floyd.”

Not fucking okay. Also, let’s see how fast temporary becomes permanent.

If you’re at a protest, consider getting a Mylar bag to put your phone in. And don’t take it out unless absolutely necessary. Mylar blocks radio transmissions, including GPS, so you can’t easily be identified by your tech.
