I remember following this at the time and I still have one of the 'what's wrong with McDonalds?' leaflets tucked away somewhere.

Helen Steel has a new book out, together with several other women who were victims of spycops:

Helen Steel is why I have been SO disappointed by Starmer. When he became leader I naively thought it didn't matter too much if he didn't quite get it yet on women's rights, he could just have a chat with his old mate Helen and she'd put him right.

This is a brilliant interview, covering McLibel, SpyCops and the TRA harassment

Thanks for the links LangClegsinSpace.

Did you listen to the Alexei Sayle podcast? Also a very good interview.

Thanks, I'll give it a listen.

She’s an inspiration! I wish I had just a fraction of her bravery. And she comes across as so nice too.
