Actually I was thinking about that. It would be most relevant and - as you say - most Spanish.--Bob's your uncle 13:58, 23 September 2007 (EDT)

Actually, there was a recent instance of agent provocateurs being uncovered in Canada, during the recent "Three Amigos" conference not far from here. A group of policemen infiltrated the protests and attempted unsuccessfully to escalate things, but were caught on video doing it. --Kels 14:18, 23 September 2007 (EDT)

What happened? Were they arrested and charged?--Bob's your uncle 14:36, 23 September 2007 (EDT)
Apparently not. In fact, the Conservative government has been doing their best to avoid calling an inquest into the affair, and claim it was actually for the good. --Kels 20:23, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

Why isn't this under plausible conspiracy theories? There were already cases of it happening, and it's exactly what I'd do if I were trying to harm some ideological group... less to actually make the group do something illegal, but rather to make internal trust impossible.
