This article is part of the Undercover Research Portal at Powerbase - investigating corporate and police spying on activists Part of a series on undercover police officers Unknown Female silhouette.png Alias: Christine Green Deployment: 1994-1999 Unit: Special Demonstration Squad Targets: Animal Liberation Front, London Animal Action, hunt saboteurs Christine Green is the cover name of an undercover police officer who served with the Metropolitan Police's Special Demonstration Squad. She infiltrated animal rights in south and west London from early 1995 to late 1999 / early 2000, where she had succeeded the previous undercover officer, Andy "Van" Davey. Christine was active in hunt sabbing, London Animal Action and national grassroots campaigns. She was arrested on least one occasion though charges were dropped. Her cover name was constructed rather than stolen from that of a dead child, being the first example of this being done by SDS undercovers. She left the police after her deployment and started a long term relationship with an animal rights campaigner who had been active in one of the groups she had targeted, a relationship which appears to have continued to the present day (February 2018). In October 2013, suspicions that Christine Green was an undercover were publicly circulated, only to be confirmed in late 2017, and publicly released by The Guardian and the Undercover Research Group in February 2018:
Andy Coles aka Davey . . . a reputation as “creepy” and “a lech” because of his inappropriate behaviour towards women.

An activist named Jessica (not her real name) said they’d begun an intimate relationship when she was just 19 and she felt groomed by him as he claimed to be 24, when he was really 32 and married.
We don't know anywhere near so much about the intelligence officers and agents who are spread throughout society like poisoned sprinkles.
The Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign includes ex-miners, Trades Unionists, activists and others who are determined to get justice for miners who were victims of police . . .
. . . can confirm that the military were on the scene, I was editing all the rushes for Channel 4 back then and remember seeing a family member in a police uniform who I knew was serving in the forces.
otjc.org.uk... The Beanfield Ambush was partly military supplementing police. Why is the Orgreave campaign not acknowledging that? Undercover Intelligence steering the Orgreave campaign? Even The Swivellers call it a battle. It was an ambush. Words are used incorrectly to guide public opinion.
It was only a year after Orgreave that the so-called “Battle of the Beanfield” took place, with violent and unprovoked attacks by the police on New Age travellers
