472225.jpg

Four deep undercover police infiltrators operating in the UK and Europe between 1995 and 2009 have been exposed. PC Mark Kennedy (AKA "Mark Stone"), an undercover police officer from 2000 to at least the end of 2009 who was based in Nottingham. Officer A, "Lyn Watson" who was undercover in Leeds from 2004 till 2008, Officer B, "Mark (Marco) Jacobs", who appeared in Brighton in 2004 and then moved to Cardiff in 2005 and was active there till 2009 and PC Jim Boyling, "Jim Sutton" who was based in London between 1995 and 2000. A summary of the activities of the first 3 agent provocateurs has been put together and activists are asked to publish any better photos or information about their political activity to this thread.

At the same time, information about postings on the UK Indymedia site from UK governmental gateways, gateway-303.energis.gsi.gov.uk and gateway-202.energis.gsi.gov.uk (which were flagged up by spam filters, using a filtering system not available on some other Indymedia sites) have been leaked by Schnews. These gateways are the main entry points between the goverment secure intranet and the internet (see link below). A full list of posts is available online. Following publication of the Schnews article, Birmingham and Sheffield IMCs both published features - one about the posts from the government gateway and one relating the suspicious posts with the recently uncovered agent provocateurs.
