Undercover Pigs at Vancouver Solidarity Rally
Update 1/26/10 2:11 AM: via Vancouver Media Co-Op "The two plainclothes cops confronted at the end of the video are members of the RCMP's Vancouver 2010 Integrated Security Unit (VISU) Joint Intelligence Group (JIG). The older white male wearing the black jacket is Ken Stolarchuk. His telephone number is 604-264-2972, fax: 604-264-3151" (received via email and posted as a comment to the story. Special thanks to the video ninjas in Vancouver)
At the end of this video, in which anti-Olympics protesters in Vancouver demonstrate against recent police repression and the usage of so-called free speech zones, two undercover officers are outed by marchers and caught on video. This is good protocol anytime undercover officers are located within demonstrations as it makes them feel extremely uncomfortable and likely to leave in order to avoid further escalation (unless they are planted to incite the crowd).
Anyone with information on the identities of these officers (in order to make sure they don't show up to meetings or more demonstrations) is encouraged to email snitchwire [at] riseup [dot] net.
