Unicorn Riot are on a speaking tour of campuses and community centers throughout 2018 in support of their feature documentary Black Snake Killaz.
Black Snake Killaz is a feature-length documentary film about the resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline. This film explores actions taken by water protectors to stop the construction of the oil pipeline and highlights actions taken by law enforcement, military, and corporate mercenaries to quell the months-long protest. Black Snake Killaz timelines the historical events that unfolded in Standing Rock throughout 2016 and brings you the raw experience from many frontline actions to protect the water. Although the Dakota Access Pipeline is completed, the impact of the movement will be long-lasting. As fossil fuel extraction projects continue to impact some of the most vulnerable communities throughout the United States of America, the importance of the water protectors story grows.

They unveiled how in Thessaloniki Nazis and nationalists attacked two social centers, burning one to the ground, vandalized a Holocaust memorial, and tore down a sign promoting religious tolerance. Although police were present, no arrests were reported in either attacks on the social centers.
They reported on how the US Senate voted to reauthorize the legal underpinning for global mass surveillance carried out by the National Security Agency (NSA). The Senate passed Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA after the US House of Representatives approved the same legislation. President Trump signed the bill into law on Friday, January 19. The bill would extend unaccountable surveillance authorities for another seven years.
