IDENTITY POLITICS

This Monday (17th), there was a noise demo outside the Stockport offices of French defence company Thales, who are a contractor involved in the planned new British National Identity Register and ID Cards.

From next week foreign nationals will have to give personal and biometric information for the register, as it begins to build files on everybody in the UK. The noise demo, with people from the Student Union Campaigns Collective, Manchester NO2ID and Students Against ID, went off without arrests despite a strong police presence.
