Bob Lambert spycop protest at London Metropolitan University

02 lambert

According to Green MP Caroline Lucas, Dr Robert Lambert, Lecturer in Criminology at London Metropolitan University, is actually a serious criminal himself, having committed the criminal act of planting an incendiary device in a Debenham’s store in the 1980s, one of three arson attacks which he helped organise, causing millions of pounds worth of damage, and for which two other activists were jailed.

At that time, he was known as Bob Robinson, and was acting as an agent provocateur and spying on protest movements as a Special Branch officer in the SDS (Special Demonstration Squad).

Between 1983 and 88, he spied on peace and social justice campaign group, London Greenpeace. He also sexually exploited several female activists by entering into relationships with them, and even fathered a child with one.

After the incendiary incident he left his activist family without a word in an unimaginable breach of trust.

It was only years later that he was spotted giving a presentation at a police conference and the truth began to unravel.

Spycop whistleblower, Peter Francis, has added more evidence to the despicable tactics used by Lambert and others, and Lambert has been named in connection with police attempts to spy on and discredit the Stephen Lawrence campaign, and also to spy on Islington MP Jeremy Corbyn.

Today’s vigil outside the Met University in Holloway Road was supported by Baroness Jenny Jones who stated to the Islington Tribune that she felt “a man without a moral compass is not an appropriate person to be teaching”.

Certainly, the women he effectively raped, think he should be held to account rather than employed by the university.

Todays’ protest was one of a series of monthly actions at the University which began last year.

Democracy Dan and the Battle of the Plinth

democracy dan 01

On Tuesday at about 3pm, a man called Dan scrambled up on to the plinth of Churchill’s statue, and began a lone occupation that continued for 29 hours until an operation involving a scaffolding team, specialist climbing officers, and around 100 other police finally got this peaceful and committed young man down and into custody.

During his protest, two supporters were arrested for throwing him supplies, police claiming that they were therefore obstructing officers who wanted him down.

On Thursday evening both Caroline Lucas MP and Jenny Jones GLA Assembly member were warned by police after trying to throw supplies too. Superintendent Kohli argued that in this case “Human rights are an irrelevence” as the police were entitled to “use force” to execute an arrest.

It is generally agreed in law that force should be used as a last resort, with consideration to the nature of the offence, and the level of resistance. It’s hard to see how torture through starvation and dehydration could be a legitimate and proportionate response to a man sitting peacefully on a plinth.

When Dan finally came down, he was arrested on suspicion of causing harassment, alarm or distress, and criminal damage (using sticky tape to secure a banner). He was later released on bail and returned to the Square, but there were reports later that he was re-arrested after feeding a sausage to a police dog!

Despite the constant police pressure, events continue at Occupy Democracy, and an announcement has been made that the occupation will now extend until 5th November in solidarity with Anonymous’ “million mask march”.
