Aye. I have personal experience of this mob. They were very, very scary. I'm ashamed to say they scared me into backing out of direct action for about ten years.

'...The targeted groups were concerned with justice for murdered black people, halting the mass slaughter of animals, preventing the collapse of our natural world, helping to bring down apartheid, combatting fascism, and so on. How much social progress has the UK lost thanks to these operations? How many campaigns failed, how many reforms and power shifts didnโ€™t occur because key activists were secretly state agents? As another former undercover officer, Peter Francis, put it: โ€œOnce the SDS gets into an organization, it is effectively finished [โ€ฆ] If the SDS had been in existence at the time of the suffragettes, their campaigns would never have got off the ground.โ€...'

The Branch originally aimed to combat Irish Fenians โ€” armed fighters seeking independence from Britain โ€” but soon expanded to keep tabs on foreign anarchists, suffragettes, and anticolonial Indians.

At the end of the 1800s, an undercover Branch officer infiltrated the Legitimation League โ€” which campaigned to de-stigmatize bastard children โ€” and orchestrated the Leagueโ€™s collapse. This operation set the tone for what was to come: intense, deeply personal infiltration of any political group that challenged the status quo...'

well, I can always login to my instance using another account by using another browser โ€“ but that seems silly. but it works.
