Brandon Darby is an American activist and informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigations. He is a co-founder of Common Ground Relief, a non-profit relief organization that provided supplies and assistance to New Orleanians in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. He was Director of Operations for the organization from January to April 2007. Darby's role as a community organizer and, at times, a humanitarian relief activist, has been the subject of numerous print, radio and television reports, as well as having been profiled in several documentary films, some which have been critical of his actions. Darby is also known for his role in infiltrating a small group of protestors at the 2008 Republican National Convention, while working as an FBI informant and subsequently taking the stand against them in court. Two of the protestors, David McKay and Bradley Crowder, were serving jail sentences as of late 2011.
Darby also appeared in Occupy Unmasked, a documentary film that contends that the Occupy Wall Street movement is a sinister, violent, and organized with the purpose of destroying the American government.
