Vericola Exposed

After the 'Mark Stone' affair, its interesting to see a case closer to home.

Rebecca Todd, the CEO of private security firm Vericola accidentally outed herself as a spy by errm... copying in activists by mistake when sending an email from her Blackberry.

Amongst their targets were Climate Camp, London Rising Tide, Plane Stupid and Campaign Against the Arms Trade.

Sheffield Indymedia have the story here (along with embarrassing photos).

In the 80's it was MI5 that tried to infiltrate trades unions and campaign groups.  2011 is all about corporate spying.
