Night’s Black Agents: Direct Action

Protests rock Seattle over a G8 summit meeting held there and new laws expanding the powers of the police force. A group of intelligence experts are retired from their former careers and now work with activists to teach them basic tradecraft and help journalists reveal the truth. Why?

Today’s protest should be interesting – street theater, big demonstrations, riot police…What could go wrong?

Bill Wessler is the biggest bully in high school.

Bill and his two friends stand far behind you at the edge of the meadow, the lights of their car on, playing loud music, drinking beers and laughing amongst themselves. “We’ll be watching!” he shouts. “No sneaking out unless you wanna be known as chicken!” Once you enter, you can’t leave until sunrise tomorrow morning. It is almost sunset on Halloween night…
