>"That One Don’t Like Having His Picture Taken… The Bald One!"

Today’s front page of the Guardian newspaper released the story by photojournalist Marc Vallée and Paul Lewis on how the UK police surveillance teams and criminal databases are being used against protestors and journalists.

Police search a journalist at Climate Camp, Kent, 2008

Apart from assisting in video footage and the podcast interview on experiences of policing and the Forward Intelligence Teams, it seems I am to go down in history as “the bald one”. But then again I have been called everything from “commie” to “fascist” to “scum” over the years, from all sectors of society, so nothing new there.
