This Funzing Experience:
**Price includes a beer, wine or non alcoholic beverage.

Exposing under cover policing in the U.K.

Neil Woods will explore how the tactic of under cover policing was developed in the U.K. and explain how the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS) sidestepped the police rules to function as they did. From the whistleblowing to the relationships formed by the undercover police such as Mark Kennedy and Mark Jenner, He will detail the controversy of the political spying and motivations behind it. How much of police spying is a direct instruction of government?

He will explain the rules as they stand, and how they are sidestepped.

Online vigilantes are the unusual new pressures for the culture of police spying. Neil will explain what could happen in the near future and ask the question, are you being spied upon?

Venue: Sink, Shoreditch

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
