This campaign is a response to revelations that undercover police officers have been systematically infiltrating those who wish to express a political voice. The scandal has brought about a whole host of concerns, ranging from institutional sexua
l misconduct, to officers acting as agent provocateurs.
We demand answers. This is so that all those who have been personally affected can come to terms with what has happened, and also so it is never allowed to happen again.
The police have announced several “inquiries” of their own, but these have hopelessly narrow remits and are being conducted by bodies barely at arms length to the police, who have repeatedly demonstrated their inability to deliver change in policing.
We are calling for the Home Secretary to launch a genuinely independant, judge-led inquiry.
