The fifth annual “Domestic Extremist Awareness Day” takes place on Monday 5 February.
We are campaigning for a complete end to the meaningless but sinister use of the ‘domestic extremist’ label against all political dissent – a critical justification for state surveillance on protest movements in the UK.
The term is used by police and even incorporated into the names of spycops’ units such as the National Domestic Extremism and Disorder Intelligence Unit, even though it doesn’t have a precise definition, let alone a legal basis.
This year, Domestic Extremist Awareness Day coincides with a hearing of the ongoing Undercover Policing Inquiry.
We are calling on campaigners to join us before work at 8am outside the Metropolitan Police’s new headquarters on Victoria Embankment.
Spread the word with the Facebook event.
