Protesting outside Scotland Yard against police spying

Youth against Racism in Europe (YRE) organised a protest outside Scotland Yard today, demanding a genuinely independent public inquiry into the infiltration scandal; police spies tried to 'dig dirt' on Stephen Lawrence's family instead of investigating the murder of Stephen (see issue 771 of the Socialist).

There have also been revelations about police spies infiltrating anti-racist and left organisations, and even having children with protesters.
