Please do not talk to the media any more about PC Mark Kennedy, PC “Marco Jacobs” and PC “Lyn Watson”.
During the Guardian and Newsnight created hype earlier this year. ABC Annares decided to start compiling a list of the movements of the 3 known infiltrators. We undertook this task not because we wished to create a time line for the purposes of “building a story” ,we did this because we were aware that we have a debt of honour to our comrades world wide. ABC Annares joins the vast majority of people affected by the 3 known infiltrators who sees solidarity as overriding a need to talk to the press. We would like to highlight the clear statements made by Saving Iceland, ABC Berlin , Cardiff Anarchist Network and the more recent joint international statement as ways of communicating a point without prostituting oneself.
To those of you who are thinking of talking to the media further, ask yourselves this. Can you actually think of some way in which your campaigns can possibly be advanced by talking to the media at this time?
Kennedy has teamed up with “PR Guru” Max Clifford. Just as two wrongs don't make a right two liars does not make the truth.
Do you think that Kennedy should profit further out of the career he made off our backs?
The three cops have caused pain and suffering that still continues. There are those who have been to prison because of these scum and there are those who may still. Do not further your own career on their backs!
And let us be clear we are not surprised that we have been infiltrated by Britain's political police. Why? Because the state is our enemy. Those of you “climate activists” who fail to see that you are just a small part of a wider movement as opposed to “The Movement” should remember that all of these police were involved in other “issues” and for the most part were almost entirely focused on the activity of those of us who are proud to stand by the label Anarchist.
And those of you who do not hold this label consider this....
If these (and the RTS and GR) infiltrations have taught us anything it is that if we centralise, the police will infiltrate the centre. Without a centre only the edge can fall victim. Anarchism is both a practical organising method as well as an ideology.
There is not a clique somewhere that has a better line in media communication than you and you do not understand the media better that the rest of us.
We are asking you to not talk to the media about this any more because you have nothing to gain and a lot to loose from further feeding them.
There are many people who have been emotionally scarred by these cops actions. They will continue to be scarred whilst the media bonfire continues. This media fire that Kennedy wishes to stoke needs oxygen. Do not feed the fire, starve him of oxygen.
