Show #85 Police spies

In the last two years, details of undercover police pretending to be activists have slowly emerged. A new book by Paul Lewis and Rob Evans, Undercover: The True Story of Britain’s Secret Police, provides the latest information about police sleeping with activist women while pretending to be someone else and officers using the names of dead children. The case that has outraged the public and led to promises of political action has been the revelation that police spied on the Stephen Lawrence campaign.

Donnacha talks to veteran activist Ellenor Hutson, who knew some of the police spies in their activist cover, about what’s happened and what should happen next.

Donnacha DeLong talks to Zoe Stavri (@stavvers) and Laurie Penny (@pennyred) about the current crises, the unofficial hierarchies within even autonomous and anarchist groups and whether equality is possible in hierarchical organisations.
