British police face criticism after asking public to report ‘anarchist’ activity to cops

LONDON — Spotted an anarchist? Call the cops.

That appears to be the instruction from a unit of Britain’s anti-terrorist police, which has asked shopkeepers and members of the public to report information about anarchists.

The advice appears in a newsletter from the “counter terrorist focus desk” in the central London district of Westminster.

Police blame anarchists for violence that erupted during recent protests against government spending cuts. Small groups of masked protesters have broken away from large demonstrations to spray graffiti and smash windows.
