- What: Picket outside South Wales Undercover Relationships case hearing
- Where: The Royal Courts of Justice
- When: 9am Tuesday 23rd May
Court cases against the police for abusive undercover relationships continue, and next week, the South Wales Case has a hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice. Show your support at a picket outside the court!
Two women and one man are suing The Metropolitan Police, South Wales Police and the Association of Chief Police Officers over sexual abuse committed by an undercover police officer in Cardiff – “Marco Jacobs”.
In conducting these abusive and degrading relationships, the police have demonstrated institutional sexism against women, and institutional prejudice against campaigners. The undercover policing scandal shows an utter contempt for our democratic right to participate in social justice campaigning.
You and your friends are needed to be there, to show that these issues are important to us all.
Shows of public support outside court hearings are incredibly powerful. Standing with and supporting people, who are courageously standing up against the state, means they do not feel they are taking this fight alone. It is public interest and outrage around these cases, that has led to the police apologising to 8 women for similar cases, and to the Undercover Policing Inquiry.
We need to keep up the pressure. Without it, they may be able to brush this critical issue for our democracy back under the carpet.
Come to this picket on Tuesday, but if you can’t then make noise about it in another way – talk about it, share on social media, write to your MP.
