Police have a list of protesters’ names


Dodgy goings on at the Met although it’s rather old news. They have been doing this for years.

Maybe we can have a list of names of bent coppers or ones that have terrorised the streets with dangerous driving.

From ITN News:

“…according to an investigation carried out by the Guardian newspaper, police are targeting thousands of protesters in surveillance operations and storing their details on a database for seven years.

The newspaper said information gathered through the Freedom of Information Act, court testimony, an interview with a senior Metropolitan Police officer and surveillance footage revealed police were storing names, photographs and video footage of activists without their knowledge.

But the Met said information was only entered on a database where it was “legally justified” in accordance with “strict national guidelines”.
