Auteur: Lubbers, Eveline
Titel: Secret Manoeuvres in the Dark
Sub titel: Corporate Spying on Activists
The exposure of undercover policeman Mark Kennedy in the "eco-activist" movement revealed how the state monitors and undermines political activism. This book shows the other grave threat to our political freedoms - undercover activities by corporations. `Secret Manoeuvres in the Dark' documents how corporations are halting legitimate action and investigation by activists. Using exclusive access to previously confidential sources, Eveline Lubbers shows how companies such as Nestlé, Shell, and McDonalds use covert methods to evade accountability. She argues that corporate intelligence gathering has shifted from being reactive to pro-active, with important implications for democracy itself. Secret Manoeuvres in the Dark will be vital reading for activists, investigative and citizen journalists, and all who care about freedom and democracy in the 21st century.
