UNDER THE COVERS COPS

The outrage felt within the activist community over the in-filth-tration by undercover police officers was taken to the doorstep of Scotland Yard on Monday (24th) as a group of around 40 women blockaded the entrance over the ‘state sanctioned sexual abuse of women’.

The group maintains that the women who had entered into sexual relationships with the undercover cops were not able to give informed consent, and were therefore molested by the state with full consent of the authorities. Protesters called for the names and identities of all other undercover officers, past and present, to be revealed to the public and for a judge-led inquiry to be initiated. Yard employees queued around the block to get into work while officers at the blockade made an obvious effort to keep wandering hands under control, seemingly content to let the group deliver their message ungroped.
