Spy within Peace movement exposed

It is scary when the forces of darkness descend. A film undercurrents made a few years ago exposed how spies within the peace and environmental movement were operating.A spy has finally just been exposed in the courts. Paul Mercer posed as a a freelance photographer for years but he had a past of selling information about activists to corporations and arms dealers.

In court it has been revealed how closely linked to the Conservative party Paul Mercer is. He is a friend of shadow defence minister Julian Lewis. He was revealed to have been paid £2,500 a month by the giant arms company's security department for his work against CAAT. He claims he was being paid to simply monitor the group and its activities. BAE is facing a wide range of bribery allegations.
