Mark Constantine on protesting and record keeping

Mark Constantine, the founder of Lush, gives his take on policing protests as details of protesting activists - including photographs - are collected by police forces and passed to a central domestic extremism unit for storage and analysis.

The police insist that this database is used for gathering intelligence in an effort to build up a picture of what is happening on protests rather than storing evidence of any crime.
