The Met were out in force, obviously having nothing better to do with their time than harrass and repeatedly photograph people handing out leaflets (the camera loves our faces...). One cop was trying to get names and addresses from people claiming the anti-social behaviour act forces you to give your details. Can anyone confirm/deny this (with chapter and verse if possible)? What would the consequences of refusal be?
Incidentally, if being followed by police in Central London, as we were afterwards, try going to Charing Cross police station - a notice on the door orders 'No entry for police personnel, use back entrance' - and the receptionist got very sniffy with our tail when they tried to come inside...
The campaign to get Reed to disinvest from Spearhead is only just starting - watch this space.
PS - does anyone other than the FIT team have photos of this protest?
