It was recently brought to our attention that someone claiming to be FBI
informant Andrew Clark Darst reached out to an anarchist organization in an
effort to get in contact with an individual that he had met prior to the
2008 RNC in St. Paul.
Darst infiltrated the Twin Cities-based
anarchist organization the RNC Welcoming Committee in 2007. He used that
position both to aid in a Minnesota state felony conspiracy case against the
RNC 8, and to entrap an individual, Matt DePalma, in a federal case that
landed DePalma a 42-month federal prison sentence.
We don't know for
certain that this new communication actually came from Darst; if it was him,
we don't know if it was at the behest of his handlers or of his own accord.
We don't know this person's purpose in reaching out since they didn't offer
What we do know is that Darst is a paid FBI
informant. He has already proven through his collaboration with the State
that he is untrustworthy and a danger to all those around him, as well as to
the friends, loved ones and communities of those who open their lives to
him. His actions resulted in convictions, jail, and prison time for multiple
people, in addition to the stress, betrayal and hardship endured by many
Darst has also gone by the nicknames 'Panda' and 'Warchyld.'

Building resistance movements strong enough to win requires not
cooperating with the State. We cannot afford to leave any room for those who
betray that principle.
We urge anyone who may have been contacted in
a similar manner to put the information out publicly, as soon as possible;
only the State benefits when we keep their secrets for them. If you have

Stay vigilant, stay strong, and fuck snitches.
