Episode 7: Anarchist Extremists - A National Perspective

Episode 7 Logo.png

Anarchist extremists believe that society should exist absent of “oppressive” governments, laws, police, or any other authority and they advocate violence in furtherance of submovements such as anti-racism, anti-capitalism, anti-globalism, and environmental extremism.

Over the past year, anarchists have carried out attacks against white supremacists during counter protests, have caused millions of dollars in damage to private and public property during riots, and have latched onto otherwise legal protests nationwide. In New Jersey, they have been largely nonviolent and focused on anti-racist action.

Director of Intelligence Rosemary Martorana and Intelligence Analyst Kristin McCormick sit down to explore what implications these recent events may have for the State of New Jersey.
