Fitwatch response to Counter-Terrorism Act Receiving Royal Assent

Fitwatch | 28.11.2008 02:07 | Anti-militarism | Policing | Repression | Terror War

The Counter-Terrorism Act received Royal Assent on 26th November. This act makes it a criminal offence, punishable by up to ten years imprisonment, to publish or elicit information abotu police officers which could be useful to terrorists.

Here is Fitwatch's response

The Counter-Terrorism Act 2008 received Royal Assent on 26th November. This is obviously much earlier than we expected. However, we have not yet found out whether it is enforcable immediately, or whether there will be a date when it comes into law. If this is the case, we will publicise the date, and carry out our act of mass resistance then.

However, if it is effective immediately, we will propose a date for people to join the mass resistance.

Whatever the status, it is business as usual here at Fitwatch. We will continue to publish whatever details of FIT, NETCU, Evidence Gatherers, Special Branch etc we can lay our hands on.

Please send us any useful photographs, or information, and we will publish them on our blog. If for some reason the blog is shut down, check or email defycops(at) for updates.

So, to kick off the new era - here is a picture of Steve Pearl, head of NETCU (National Extremism Tactical Coordination Unit)

If you see Steve wandering the streets of Cambridgeshire, be sure to say hello.
