I'm not sure how many of you guys are aware, but did you know that at the g20 protests police used undercover officers at the G20 protests to incite violence among other participants?
The objective being (I would suspect) to discredit and marginalise those protesting, such that they are just seen as a fringe band of extremists, as opposed to a group representing the majority.
Do you think that similar thing could have happened at the Student Protests recently?
Here is a link to the Guardian's coverage of the story:
And remember look at the boots:

An MP who was involved in last month's G20 protests in London is to call for an investigation into whether the police used agents provocateurs to incite the crowds.
Liberal Democrat Tom Brake says he saw what he believed to be two plain-clothes police officers go through a police cordon after presenting their ID cards.
So this is based on what an MP thinks he saw? Judging by the comments from most protests very few people seem to know what is going on. Look at the student riots people were claiming tear gas was used against them.Last edited by Aj12; 26-03-2011 at 15:45.
