They track three emerging strategies: zoning or incarceration of protesters, expansion of human surveillance techniques by police and law enforcement agencies, and deployment of astealtha forms of crowd control. Addressing the logic of preemption, Elmer and Opel lay the groundwork for more effective resistance.
