The enemy isn't [necessaraily] the police or security services. It's Big Pharma and Farmers.
Some cops are against labs.
Some cops are veggies...what's in YOUR canteen? Anything edible?
British Transport Police, having not been told by the NIMR / MRC about an animal testing lab planned for Camden had to resort to knocking on campaigners doors to find out if it was indeed true that an animal testing lab / virus containment facility is planned for Camden / Kings Cross.
The "dodgy" characters that some of us are so paranoid about are not [necessarily] the police. They are greedy, underhand big business people who think they can run roughshod over everyone and will use all sorts of people and tactics to get their own way.
In the case of the Camden campaign....MI5 have warned against the lab, leaking warnings to the Evening Standard. British Transport Police high ranking officers visited Camden council top brass a to find out what was goiing on with the planning proposals.
Are Big Pharma going to charge MI5, BTP / the Met / Camden council, residents and people concerned for the welfare or rights of animals as all being in great big conspiracy plot....?
I don't think so.
Then again, they might.
We ALL need to stop locking horns with the police, getting distracted by tactics used by troublemakers from Big Pharma and remember who the REAL enemy is.
