They had a marker placed against their car on the Police National Computer by Sussex Police after attending three anti-arms demonstrations against EDO MBM Technology in Moulsecoomb.

Months later an automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) camera in central London flagged them up as “of interest to public order unit Sussex”.

They were pulled over and searched by a police anti-terrorism unit - and threatened with arrest under the Terrorism Act if they did not explain where they were going. Neither had a criminal record.

... Mr Catt hit the headlines at Brighton's Labour Party Conference in 2005 when he was searched under the Terrorism Act on his way to campaign for the release of Guantanamo Bay prisoner Omar Deghayes.

He said: “That our participation in peaceful protest outside an arms factory led to our arbitrary stop-check for terrorist activities many miles away by another force is a very disturbing development of the 'police state'.”


Yet another sign that Big Brother is watching, and has you neatly categorized in a database. How long is it until everyone is assigned a "threat level"? Or has that already happened, and they're not telling us?

..Its pretty sad that im not surprised one bit by this,pretty soon before we know it this will just be the norm and the masses wont bat an eyelid. I want to know when will the public get some backbone in the UK, march a million man strong group down to westminster,grab every single MP by the scruff of the neck and kick them out the country via a boat in the pacific ocean and very heavy weights.

We are living in a BB Britain now. As I said on another thread we are the most watched people in the world, more CCtV, one for every 12 people, bigger data bases, and less freedom of speech.

I learnt today that as a protester of the third runway at Heathrow my details will in all probability be handed over to the police by civil seervants who are composing dossiers on opponents of expansion.
