Monitoring activists who oppose government policy - including foreign policy - has long been a practice of the security services and the police. Whole ‘suspect’ communities fall under covert security surveillance activities, which can involve illegal means. In November 2015, current Prime Minister Theresa May, admitted, as Home Secretary, that in fact all British citizens are suspect and the security services have been monitoring e-mail and telephone communications for over a decade LINK.

At our September meeting on Monday, we will be joined by Donal O'Driscoll from the Undercover Research Group and a core participant in the Pitchford Inquiry into Undercover Policing who will talk about the state of play with regards to the public inquiry and introduce some of his group's work on exposing undercover police in protest movements.

Come and find out how you may be affected.

Gary Moyse "claims that investigators working for an insurance company disputing the level of his claim for six-figure damages filmed him as he walked to his local high street – as he tried to follow his consultant’s advice to stay active – and then edited the footage to remove shots of him pausing, taking breaks, taking his medication, being assisted by friends, and falling over."
