UK government funds and employs a “charity” which aims to disrupt and defund “disinformation” media outlets, globally

In January, Big Brother Watch released a report detailing secretive Whitehall units monitoring government critics’ speech online – including , academics, journalists, human rights campaigners and the public – under the guise of combatting “misinformation.”  The title of the report was ‘Ministry of Truth: the secretive government units spying on your speech’.

The ‘Ministry of Truth’ report also exposed the Government’s use of the British Army to scan their own citizens’ speech online, with exclusive testimony from a whistle-blower who worked in the “secretive information warfare machine”, the 77th Brigade.

The documents released on Tuesday consist of emails and daily “Mis/Disinformation” reports produced by the 77th Brigade for the Cabinet Office.  They show soldiers tracking narratives from Members of the UK Parliament and the corporate press.  Big Brother Watch has requested months’ worth of these documents but “only a handful appear to have survived,” they said.

Other documents released on Tuesday consist of requests for military assistance from the Counter Disinformation Unit (“CDU”). These requests are called Military Aid to Civilian Authority (“MACA”) requests.  At the time, the CDU was part of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport.

According to the UK government website, the CDU was first set up in 2019 within the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (“DCMS”).  However, according to The Constitution Unit, based in the University College London Department of Political Science, the CDU was set up in March 2020.

In July 2019, the Defending Democracy programme was announced as a cross-Whitehall initiative bringing together civil society, intelligence and government departments. The programme covers electoral integrity and related online transparency issues.  As part of this programme, The Constitution Unit wrote, the Counter Disinformation Cell (“CDC”) or Counter Disinformation Unit (“CDU”) was set up in March 2020 to deal with coronavirus-related “false narratives.”
