Political policing hit the headlines almost a decade ago, when the activities of Mark Kennedy (aka “Mark Stone”) were exposed in the public. Since then, the public inquiry into undercover has made slow progress – and inevitably become London-centric. This talk will aim to correct this by taking a look at the fragmentary evidence we have of the history of state subversion of progressive and radical movements outside of London, with a focus on the North East of England.
An update of the progress of the public inquiry will also be provided – followed by a Q & A.
Chris Brian is a researcher for the Undercover Research Group and one of the many who were spied-upon.
