DHS security assessment says extremists are not driving George Floyd protests.

  • In a June 1 internal, intelligence assessment of the protests, U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials said most of the violence appears to have been driven by opportunists.
  • The assessment said there was some evidence that the anarchist movement Antifa may be contributing to the violence.
  • The report also noted that white supremacists were working online to increase tensions between protesters and law enforcement by calling for acts of violence against both groups.
