SitP – Undercover in the war on drugs

March 7 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

£3

Meet Neil Woods – a former Police Officer who worked undercover for 14 years as part of the war on drugs. From a samurai sword to the neck and being stripped naked at gun point Neil had many near death experiences as he infiltrated drug gangs across the U.K.

He will recount tales from his undercover days and use these to illustrate how police tactics lead to the monopolisation and increased violence of Organised Crime, as the vulnerable victims of the Drug War are trampled in the crossfire.

His memoir Good Cop, Bad War blows the whistle on the way drugs are really policed in this country and has been described as “The best book ever written about the British War on Drugs” by Johann Hari.
