Hackney Community Defence Association

I’ve added a page to the site introducing Hackney Community Defence Association (HCDA):

“HCDA is a self help group for the victims of police crime. It investigates allegations against the police, provides mutual support for victims and campaigns against police injustice.

The organisation was active from the late eighties to the mid nineties. The page includes details of all their publications that I’m aware of. (If you know of any more, leave a comment…)

I’ve also scanned in the HCDA booklet “Fighting The Lawmen” which deals with their extensive and inspiring investigation into crimes committed by cops based in Stoke Newington police station.
