These sort of house visits are what happened
in the run-up to the WEF meeting in Poland. See the main report here:
Police against activists http://pl.indymedia.org/pl/2004/04/5135.shtml#english
and the cops even carried out a silly Hollywood style raid (which hopefully will fireback at them with a good lawsuit)
Police raid house of Warsaw anti-repression activist
Situation was similar in Ireland too at same time.
The chances of a large number of house visits
are probably high, so it's worth sorting out some
viable strategy, e.g. why not try to have many
activists prepared with video cameras, and
*overtly* film any cops coming to visit - of course
refuse to talk, but even filming this much
is useful footage. Just think of it in Michael
Moore's next film... ;)
If the film camera is clearly visible, then it
should be ok legally.
Anyway, by publishing the cop's official visiting
card info, you're already reacting faster than
we did in Poland. Good luck!
