Wikileaks is dumping 5 million emails from Stratfor. This series is about Coke trying to get some info on PETA. Fascinating.
Interesting, thanks Fred.

Yeah, I’m not sure how that works now either. Bart, is this something
you guys can still help with?

Subject: Public Policy Question for Coca-Cola
Coca-Cola just sent me a long list of questions regarding PETA/Animal
Activism and the upcoming Olympics in Vancouver—I’ve pasted the
questions below. I’m not entirely clear on how much we can task the
public policy group at this point—is there any guidance you can give me
on that front? Coke has asked for a short teleconference with one of
our analysts to discuss this issue—is that something I could ask Kathy,
Bart or Joe to do, or would that be off the table at this point? Stick,
are these questions something that you have a handle on, if we aren’t
able to get info from the policy folks?
Any thoughts or guidance would be helpful. Thanks, Anya
— How many PETA supporters are there in Canada?
— How many of these are inclined toward activism?
— To what extent will US-based PETA supporters travel to Canada to
— What is PETA’s methodology for planning and executing activism?
(Understanding this better would certainly help us to recognize
indicators should they appear.)
— To what extent is PETA in Canada linked to PETA in the US or
— To what extent are the actions of PETA in one country controlled by
an oversight board/governing body?
— To what extent could non-PETA hangers-on (such as anarchists or ALF
supporters) get involved in any protest activity?
A fascinating story that exposes a major private intelligence firm. It’s extremely interesting that Anonymous gave these files to Wikileaks — Anonymous hacked Stratfor late last year. Wikileaks has numerous media partners around the world for this story, with McClatchy and Rolling Stone representing the U.S., and activist group The Yes Men helping as well. We’ll check more of this stuff out later tonight.
