Description Undercover Police officers in the UK spent years living with activists, forming the most intimate relationships and infiltrating every single part of our lives. No matter how many layers of encryption you use, if your closest companions are cops, sharing your home, your details and your computer, there is nowhere to hide. This talk is by one of a group of 8 women suing the London Metropolitan Police over undercover abuses. It will look at the experience of police infiltration in the UK, some of our responses, and how that might relate to digital privacy struggles and resistance to other parts of the surveillance state.
