A red fist holding a flower. A black flag with a green stripe. A faceless person standing defiantly in front of a tank. Do you know what these symbols mean? Are they indicators of radicalism or just free speech?
Unmask the Movement is an immersive online course designed to introduce participants to common symbols and lexicon found on social media, associated with criminal activist groups and subversive organizations. The course will cover the difference between protected free speech and criminal activism. Class participants will learn the significance of modern iconography found online, and lexicon designed to motivate people to attack law enforcement, business, and government targets. Unmask the Movement goes one step further by introducing a method for assessing the risk posed by criminal activist groups. By the end of the course, participants will know where to find critical information on criminal activist groups, what the symbols means, and how to prepare for direct action in their community.
