Description

Spied Upon is an upcoming documentary film that shows the human story of what it's like to be targeted by secret police, while revealing at a human scale today's complex international spying apparatus, a system that has spun out of control. British undercover police spy Mark Kennedy appears to have targeted Earth First! beginning in 2003. Here is a detailed chronology of Kennedy's activities: http://www.powerbase.info/index.php/Mark_Kennedy:_A_chronology_of_his_activities According to the Powerbase web-site and reports in the Guardian, at the time of this animal rights meeting in Italy in 2010, Kennedy was no longer a police officer, and may well have been working with Global Open, a private security firm with pharmaceutical company clients, known for targeting animal rights activists. Background here: http://www.powerbase.info/index.php/Mark_Kennedy#Global_Open_and_Tokra We need you to help back this important film, and have kicked off our Crowdfunding campaign with the goal of raising urgently needed funding to finish this film and release it in 2014, just as related court cases and parliamentary debates heat up. Please support us at indiegogo.com/projects/spied-upon! -- My name is Jason Kirkpatrick, I'm a documentary director who is also passionate about the environment, and issues of social justice. When many of my colleagues and I found out that one of our best friends was an undercover cop who had targeted us intensely for years, I immediately knew I had to create a film about what had happened. Making the film Spied Upon and telling the story of how this internationally scandalous operation and others like it work, is a project that has totally consumed me for the past three years. Your support is crucial to help bring this film to people across the world, and to help stop current abuses happening to people. For more info, please visit indiegogo.com/projects/spied-upon
