Anarchists Attack Surveillence Industry (UK)
27 May 2011
“Last night Inside Out Security in New Basford had it’s windows smashed.
We did this because they are responsible for making surveillance equipment that watches us everywhere we go. They are specifically responsible for a large number of CCTV cameras in schools around Nottingham. These cameras in schools further stigmatise and terrorise the young, positioning them as the dangers to each other, training them to become used to being watched, controlling their behaviour and taking away their freedom. Instead of encouraging the young to love and live with wild passion this society is caging them- forcing them into lives not of their choosing.
We want to destroy these companies that profit from the sickness of social surveillance on behalf of capitalism and the state.
We also did this in solidarity with those who resist the G8 and G20 conferences occurring in France this week. While the government leaders from around the world discuss ways to keep their power, we will fight their systems of oppression that are all around us.
So their surveillance is there to protect us? Fuck that. Their cameras exist to make us live in fear, to do as we are told, to make us feel alienated and scared of one another. The surveillance system is there to serve the interests of the rich and protect their property, power and capital.
We see something that destroys our freedom, our relationships with each other and we wish to attack it with the means we have available. So whilst this was a small act of defiance, quickly remedied in part by their insurance, we carry out this act because of the very fact that we search for freedom from all forms of social control. Every time we see similar acts of rebellion, from throwing rocks at cops to the burning of a prison, a smile spreads across our face and recognition that the attack against this society of domination continues. We will continue our participation in this attack, because it is our passion- settling for a life of meaningless subordination is not an option for us, not when all around us are examples of our friends, families and ourselves being continually fucked over by rampant capitalism, and the colluding state.
We must look to each other with love and solidarity.
We must destroy what keeps us apart with rage.
Against the prison society.
For total freedom.”
