    I looked for them, as well as Cooltan and the Freedom Network.

    Cherry Grove campaign?

    How was that threat to national security?

    Oh it was threat to the pigs reputation.

    What is worse is that some of these pigs were starting affairs with female activists in political groups.

    Also the efforts of infiltration of groups was biased towards left of centre groups. Not the right.

    There are two undercover officers mentioned spying on Movement of Justice.

    Why after all this did Duwayne Brooks end up joining the Tory party? Is this a delayed Stockholm Syndrome situation or what? *

    Note that the officer spying on MFJ (but not spying on Duwayne Brooks) was also busy infiltrating the Wayne Douglas Campaign (which was around the death in police custody case sparking the 1995 Brixton riot).

    These "operations" are not necessarily about national security - more what the police like to call "public order" - which makes it worse really. They are prepared to break the law themselves to maintain the upper hand. Another form of police corruption.

    * footnote - on reflection I'm willing to believe Mr Brooks defected to the Tories over Brexit. It is my experience that African and Caribbean people sometimes feel that Brexit would mean greater ease of access to the UK of those populations (family visits/marriage etc). Having seen the latest Windrush debacle that seems optimistic to say the least!

    Read that. Cops that volunteer to do this are scum of the worst order.

    This is about spying on peaceful activists.
