Movement for Compassionate Living AGM

The Movement for Compassionate Living (M.C.L) aims to spread the vegan message and promote simple living and self-reliance as a remedy against the exploitation of humans, animals and the Earth.

Contact to secretary for details of the AGM venue.

M.C.L. Publications are available from Veggies or the M.C.L. website.

Compassionate living is about making connections between the way we live and the way others suffer, between unnecessary industrial development and the destruction of the planet. It involves a commitment to work non-violently for change, promoting lifestyles that are possible for all the world’s people, sustainable within the resources of the planet, environmentally friendly and free of all exploitation of animals and of people.

Undercover Research Group

Were you targeted by undercover police?

The scandal of Mark Kennedy and the spying on the Lawrence family is only the tip of the iceberg. Political policing has targeted social justice and protest groups for a long time, but we are at a unique point in history where we have a chance to do something about it, not least learn the extent to which we were targeted.

This message is going out to all those political activists – left wing, blacklisted, anarchist, labour or union, environmental or animal rights, anti-fascist, peace and justice campaigners – who were spied on by undercover police or have strong reasons to believe they were.

We are organising a series of roundtable discussions around the country to serve several purposes:

1. To start hearing your story in a safe way; and to understand the effects of undercover policing on people and campaigns;

2. To share experience in researching suspicions;

3. To discuss what options are available in terms of legal action or the Public Inquiry into undercover policing; including identifying potential miscarriages of justice, understanding the disruption caused, etc;

4. To develop a strong, collective message about the abuses done in the name of undercover policing and demand that the inquiry addresses them properly, not least by providing the necessary information to answer people’s doubts and concerns.

This is not a public meeting or for those merely interested. Those will happen another time. For now we wish to focus on those affected by the presence of undercovers in their campaigns and lives. These meetings are not open to the media, right-wing campaigners or police. Where possible we will seek to provide safe spaces as we are aware of how sensitive some of the state intrusion has been.

We are planning a number of these roundtables around the country:

9 Feb (Tue): Brighton
11 Feb (Thu): Oxford
21 Feb (Sun): Cardiff
22 Feb (Mon): Bristol
29 Feb (Mon): Nottingham
15 March (Tue): Leeds
16 March (Wed): Manchester
17 March (Thur): Liverpool
21 March (Mon): Norwich (TBC)

If you want to attend please drop us an email. Please forward far and wide. If you cannot make one of these meeting but are interested, or if you want to help setting one up elsewhere, please get in touch.
