I had been campaigning for decades with organisations such as London Boots Action Group, London Animal Action, London Greenpeace and London Vegan Campaigns. As a result I was targeted for at least 20 years before discovering in 2011 that people I thought were my friends and comrades were in fact undercover police officers. I set up ARspycatcher on Facebook, Twitter and as a blog to uncover the truth about spies in the animal rights movement.
