Anyone who is familiar with Last Hours will know we have supported FITwatch, a group set up to monitor police Forward Intelligence Teams at protests.
FITwatch has been targeted by police after the Millbank protests last Wednesday for offering advice to those in attendance at the protest about how to deal with the possibility of arrest.
The sites host was contacted by police requesting that the entire FITwatch site be removed for ‘attempting to pervert the course of justice’. It is not yet clear if a court order had been obtained.
As the fallout of this attack on legal and support infrastructure plays out you can follow on Twitter via the hash-tag #Fitwatch.
Addition 17th November: We’ve just heard that Fitwatch is back up and running. Visit http://www.fitwatch.org.uk/ for all the information that the Metropolitan Police didn’t want you to see!
