Counter Insurgency Paper: Weak Points of #Canada’s ‘Resource’ Exploitation Economy

Montreal Counter-info has published a video detailing the weak points of extractive industry, transportation, and infrastructure – taken straight from a counter-insurgency paper concerned with the threat of indigenous uprising in Canada.

“Observant individuals can easily identify many such critical bottlenecks across Canada. They share several common characteristics:

  • they are of immediate and significant value to businesses and governments;
  • they concentrate valued resources or essential economic functions;
  • they are located at the intersection of related transportation systems, thus allowing protesters to use their scarce resources efficiently;
  • most are far from major national security resources and forces, thus complicating the deployment and maintenance of these forces;
  • most are close to First Nations communities that would likely be neutral if not active supporters of insurgents and would provide safe-havens and logistical support to main participants;
  • all are high profile assets the disruption of which would attract (for governments) troublesome national and international political and media attention; and
  • all are vulnerable (i.e., value multiplied by the ease of disruption).”
