Ministry Of Defence Police Raid Upon Greenpeace

EDM number 1137 in 1994-95, proposed by Harry Cohen on 17/05/1995.

That this House notes that no operational purpose has been proffered for the Ministry of Defence Police raid on Greenpeace Headquarters on Wednesday 17th May; in the absence of such an explanation concludes that it was undertaken for reasons of political revenge and malice following Greenpeace's recent effective anti-nuclear demonstrations; and regards it as an abuse of state power to act in such a vindictive manner against a respected campaigning organisation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 44 MPs.
