Mark Malone brings us a recording of a press conference which took place in Dublin where activists put pressure on the government to look into the role of undercover British cops here.
Above is a picture of one such undercover British cop called Mark Kennedy in Ireland in 2005.
Here’s the jist:
“Earlier today three people targetted by members of the UK National Public Order Intelligence Units (NPOIU) in Ireland held a press conference. They want to build pressure on the Irish government to open up about the role of British spies in Ireland.
The three, Kate Wilson, Kim Bryan and Jason Kirkpatrick travelled from Spain,
Wales and Germany. Kate is one of a number of women who brought cases against the Metropolitan police in London because of being decieved into long term relationships with men who turned out to be undercover officers.
Kim Bryan was involved in organising educational workshops and mobilisations around the G8 meeting in Scotland in 2005, and spoke about how an undercover officer with the NPOIU convince her and other to travel to Ireland. The undercover cop paid for the visit and provided the transport.
Jason Kirkpatrick was also targetted by the same undercover cop in Ireland, Northern Ireland and in Germany.”
