Bath, UK: Solidarity Burn for the Six Arrested 5G ‘Orange’ Arsonists in France

Monday, September 28th, 2020

FR | Bath (UK) : Incendie en solidarité avec les six inculpé.e.s de l’attaque d’une antenne 5G en France

We torched an Orange mast in the South West; a few miles outside of Bath (UK), to show that we too despise the dodgy technology that promises to enhance our futures, while imprisoning our minds. Solidarity with the six comrades who were arrested for an arson attack on an Orange relay 5-SFR antenna that was burnt in the industrial zone of Douai-Dorignies, France.

Act locally, give solidarity globally….

….especially solidarity with those on the streets across the world who have resisted lock-downs, and pushed beyond the mediated options of social media, to physically attack the racist police, and all the structures that support them.

See you on the streets. Stay safe, stay rowdy.

Poster text:

Fire to the Cybernetic Prison
It’s never too late to resist

Artificial Intelligence
AI labs, recipients of several $100M in government funding, are working to put “machine learning” algorithms in the service of a long list of industries. Under an “ethical” facade, some applications will simply allow well-placed capitalists to further enrich themselves. Others aim to reinforce repression, whether detecting shoplifters at the supermarket with automated video surveillance, developing facial recognition tools that work even on partly covered faces, or “predicting” crime or the probability of a prisoner re-offending.

5g Wireless Networking
The unprecedented bandwidth of 5G technology enables the deployment of AI on the scale of a city in real time. Every movement becomes trackable thanks to thousands of cameras integrated into a centralized surveillance apparatus. This vision is already in practice in more than one European “smart city”. Countless sensors dotting public spaces, in businesses, cars and public transit, and worn on our bodies aim to make every action the object of calculation, prediction and control, all under an eco-friendly label. By its pervasiveness, a web of algorithms is made invisible and therefore impossible to resist.

Robotics and Automation

Self-driving cars. Robotized warehouses. Cashierless stores. Delivery robots that call the cops when they are attacked. An infrastructure is being deployed that will change the world of work and our living environment permanently. We don’t mourn the disappearance of back-breaking and boring jobs. A dehumanizing pace is imposed on the remaining workers, who must keep up with the machines and productivity software or be shown the door. Meanwhile, what measures of social control and what exploitative schemes await the new excluded masses of an age of technological unemployment?

Life in Front of a Screen

Possibilities for authentic relations between humans and with our surroundings are increasingly erased in service of a virtual hyper- connectivity. Understanding, discovery, and the search for meaning are reduced to production of data. Attention deficit, memory problems, loss of emotional skills and imagination, disrupted sleep, musculo-skeletal pain, anxiety, loneliness, depression: the symptoms of addiction to online technologies are worsening as the proportion of the population that has spent their entire lives immersed in touch screens grows.
For free and full lives, open to the unknown

Be the outage in their network!

Bradford, UK: The 90th Mobile Phone Mast Goes Up In Flames

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

via: Sans Nom

At around 4am during the night of Thursday September 10, in Otley Road, Bradford (West Yorkshire), a pylon topped with a 5G antenna was set on fire. The fire lit at the foot of the pylon rose right to the summit, destroying everything along the way.

The next day. Given the structural damage to the pylon, it had to be cut in three and disassembled. At least 90 mobile phone antennas have been sabotaged [in the UK] since April and the last period of lockdown, often by fire, according to official figures.

As has now become customary in some countries, vultures and State parrots immediately jumped on the hypothesis of conspiratorial opponents to 5G, while this attack is anonymous and there are plenty of other reasons for taking on this kind of telecommunication structure.

These devices contribute to alienation and the alimentation of this techno-scientific world, that empties our existence and perfects the exercise of power through control. Against all viruses, including that of the technological pandemic, fire is in any case a good remedy. Next!

Automatización, robótica y mano de obra en la 4ta y 5ta revoluciones industriales

Wednesday, September 9th, 2020

De la revista 325 (próximamente en español):

DE | Automatisierung, Robotik und Arbeit in der 4ten und 5ten industriellen Revolution

EN | Automation, Robotics & Labour in the 4th & 5th Industrial Revolutions

Desde que comenzó la primera Revolución Industrial en la década de 1700, las sucesivas revoluciones industriales han afectado profundamente a los trabajadores, a los propios trabajadores, creando incluso el concepto de ‘clase trabajadora’, cómo vivían, su integración en los agujeros del infierno urbano que avanzaban, las prisiones de las fábricas, molinos y pozos mineros, incluso sus hijos no se libraron de la indignidad, ni siquiera de la muerte de la esclavitud moderna de la época. La industrialización, el resultado de la mecanización en la industria, alimentó la esclavitud moderna y la domesticación de los seres humanos en todos los rincones de los imperios y colonias en expansión, no solo en el resto del planeta vivo. Ahora estamos en la cúspide del comienzo de una 4ta Revolución Industrial (4IR) e incluso una 5ta (5IR) que afectará tan radicalmente nuestro encarcelamiento dentro de la sociedad tecnológica como las hizo en las anteriores. El concepto mismo de trabajo, incluso el trabajo mismo, cambiará más allá del reconocimiento una vez más. Ya en la consiguiente ‘pandemia del coronavirus’ y en los controles de toque de queda que se han aplicado a miles de millones en todo el mundo, las señales de las próximas revoluciones industriales ya están apareciendo, y se informa que millones perdieron sus empleos en muchos países.

Automation, Robotics & Labour in the 4th & 5th Industrial Revolutions

Wednesday, September 9th, 2020

From 325 #12:

DE | Automatisierung, Robotik und Arbeit in der 4ten und 5ten industriellen Revolution

ES | Automatización, robótica y mano de obra en la 4ta y 5ta revoluciones industriales

Since the first Industrial Revolution began in the 1700’s, successive industrial revolutions have profoundly affected labour, the workers themselves, creating even the concept of the ‘working class’, how they lived, their integration into the advancing urban hell holes, the prisons of the factories, mills and mining pits, even their children were not spared the indignity, even death of modern slavery of the time. Industrialization, the result of mechanisation in industry, fed modern enslavement and domestication of human beings in every corner of the spreading empires and colonies not just the rest of the living planet.

We are now on the cusp of the beginning of a 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) and even a 5th (5IR) that will affect just as radically our imprisonment within the technological society as it did in the previous ones. The very concept of labour, even work itself will change beyond recognition once again. Already in the ensuing ‘coronavirus pandemic’ and curfew controls that have been enforced on billions worldwide, the signals of the coming industrial revolutions are already appearing, with millions being reported to lose their jobs in many countries.

Provisional notes on 5G (Italy)

Friday, July 3rd, 2020

The reasons for opposing the 5G network are many, often overshadowed by the predominant (and absolutely legitimate) concern driven by an extremely noxious technology that will invade bodies and spaces with grave consequences from the point of view of health and environmental pollution. But when it comes to 5G we cannot just think of a mere advancement of the current 4G network, therefore a more rapid way of navigating. When we talk of 5G we can’t even see it as “just” yet another toxicity, and oppose it exclusively in terms of health safety of individuals and protection of the environment. The 5G network is above all a necessary infrastructure for the various actors in the field. For the bosses to increase profits on the backs of the workers; for States to increase social control within national borders, and to better orchestrate military operations on the various war fronts.

Let’s take a look at these aspects…

Yet another infrastructure for the bosses’ benefit

The 5G network will permit more simultaneous connections and passing of data with zero delay. These characteristics are fundamental for the large scale explosion of technologies that use Artificial Intelligence. As we know, Artificial Intelligence is becoming part of the production process by replacing human labour (or trying to).

Thus the worker is becoming more and more dependent on a mechanism, often without knowing how it works, more and more alienated, more and more dominated by work rhythms dictated from above. Their autonomy can only be reduced. They are no longer a protagonist but the terminal of a machine which, if it doesn’t overwhelm them, is because it has already kicked them out of the production process and taken their place. The 5G network corresponds more to the needs of industrialists than to those of average users (as they want us to believe). In fact, the Industry 4.0 model foresees that industrial plants (manufacturing, post-production and energy generation) will benefit from services created on the new mobile network. (more…)

Surge of Anti-5G Arson Sabotage in Netherlands & UK

Sunday, April 19th, 2020

ES | PAÍSES BAJOS Y REINO UNIDO: OLEADA DE SABOTAJES ANTI-5G

According to corporate media over the last fortnight a wave of arson attacks took place in the Netherlands against cellular phone repeaters. The last reported by the corporate media took place in Groningen. “Fuck 5G” was written at one site. The actions did not appear to be claimed. At least 15 attacks took place according to the info issued by the Dutch government through the media. Apparently the first fire was in Beesd on April 4. Since then transmission masts were also torched in Neerkant, Rotterdam, Nuenen, Dronten, Groningen, Oudenbosch, Veldhoven, Tilburg, and Almere. Reportedly, none of the antenna were 5G carriers, being 2G, 3G and 4G masts. Police reported that the method of sabotage was similar at each site. One instigator of the Groningen fire was caught on surveillance camera. Reportedly, European law enforcement officials are being pulled off terrorism cases in order to investigate arson attacks against 5G cellphone towers. The anti-5G arson attacks which initially took place in UK have sparked a blaze of attacks across Europe and beyond.

The Dutch security services started an anti-terrorist investigation covering the attacks. Further information and reports about the specifics of the actions are scarce. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte was forced to make a statement about the anti-5G sabotage as the Dutch regime could not ignore it any longer. The sabotage seriously weakens the ability of the state to respond during a heightened moment of instability due to the coronavirus. Telecommunications industry companies are engaged in a public relations battle about the anti-5G actions and the implications for the expansion of 5G and the ‘Internet of Things’.

According to UK authorities and mobile companies another 20 attacks against 5G masts took place in UK over the Easter weekend. Arsons were reported in England, Wales and Scotland over the bank holiday – and follow others the previous weekend. Additional incidents were reported on Tuesday. So far 53 attacks have taken place from media news reports. Corporations continue with a joint media offensive to discredit the attacks, blaming them on the results of “misinformation” spread by “conspiracy theorists” and bot networks controlled by state actors such as Russia, Iran and others. Phone company EE issued a statement that it will be increasing security at high-risk sites. They said that guards who are patrolling those sites are being supplied with body cameras and are being instructed to alert local police. All of the communications industry companies had their infrastructure hit in the arson attacks.

Resist the Fourth Industrial Repression!

Saturday, April 18th, 2020

From The Acorn:

The First Industrial Repression saw us thrown off the land, forced into crowded towns and cities, used as human fodder for the dark satanic mills of the new steam-powered capitalist world.

The Second Industrial Repression electrified the rule of The Machine. New generations were born who had never tasted freedom. Their lives and their thinking were increasingly dominated by the rhythms of industrial mass production.

The Third Industrial Repression heralded the arrival of computers and robots. Human beings were now expected to meekly conform to these automated norms and functions.

And now we face the onset of the Fourth Industrial Repression (4IR), the most deathly repression of them all…

The 4IR wants to own, control and profit from everything that exists in this world.

Its Internet of Things aims to create a matrix of total connectivity, of which it is the owner.

You, your home, your family, your friends, your relationships and your activities will all belong to the 4IR. (more…)

Sabotajes incendiarios al 5G, teorías de conspiración y Reino Unido

Saturday, April 11th, 2020

EN | 5G Arson Sabotage, Conspiracy Theories and UK

FR | Sabotage incendiaire anti-5G, théories du complot et Royaume-Uni

+ [Reino Unido] Un balance de los ataques incendiarios a las antenas de telecomunicaciones

Según los medios de comunicación, otras cuatro antenas de telefonía móvil de Vodafone han sido incendiadas en las últimas 24 horas después de los recientes ataques de fuego a la infraestructura 5G que tuvieron lugar el 2 y 3 de abril.
También hay torres 3G y 4G entre las destruidas, aunque no está claro si fueron saboteadas involuntariamente o no. La información sobre los ataques en sí fue difícil de obtener debido a la limitada información disponible en los medios de comunicación y a la rápida censura en los medios sociales populares.

Desde los primeros ataques de la semana pasada, se han reportado al menos 20 ataques en todo el país, y hay reportes de ingenieros siendo interrogados, acosados y atacados por personas que tienen problemas con el 5G. Es evidente que, aunque todo está en bloqueo, la continua expansión y desarrollo del 5G ha seguido siendo una prioridad. El régimen del Reino Unido y las empresas de comunicaciones se vieron obligados a emitir una declaración en la que describían los riesgos que el 5G representa para la salud humana como “sin fondo” y achacaban el acoso y los ataques a las “teorías de la conspiración”. La empresa de medios sociales Facebook sacó de la red varios sitios dedicados a la grabación y aparentemente a la llamada de ataques anti-5G, y también hizo que su empresa de aplicaciones de mensajería WhatsApp restringiera la transmisión de mensajes. Esto es parte de un intento de plataforma cruzada por Twitter, Google, YouTube, etc. en un esfuerzo con el estado para coordinar la censura y el seguimiento de lo que ellos describen como “desinformación” sobre los orígenes de Covid-19.

5G Mobile Phone Masts Set on Fire in Merseyside and Birmingham (UK)

Saturday, April 4th, 2020

FR | Royaume-Uni : Face au techno-virus de la 5G, le remède est incendiaire – 2 et 3 avril 2020

5G Masts were set alight in Sparkhill, Birmingham, on Thursday 2nd April, and Melling, Merseyside, on Friday 3rd April.

The 70ft mobile phone tower in Birmingham was torched shortly after 8pm. Firefighters were called to the EE structure ‘well alight’ on Spring Road in Tyseley. Police also attended to block off the road while the flames were tackled for over an hour.

In Melling, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service said it extinguished a 5G mast tower fire near the M57 motorway late in the evening on Friday.

Also, at the end of September 2019, the EE/BT tower in Porth, Wales, was destroyed by an arson attack

* Updated from Sans Attendre Demain: During the same night of April 3, in Belfast, in Northern Ireland, a 5G relay antenna was also burnt down: In a video published on the internet, we see flames at the feet of a pylon erected on Antrim Road, in a neighborhood north of the city. We also hear voices saying “fuck the 5G!” and “Long live the Revolution!”. A firefighter confirms that several fires were ignited at the base of the antenna, destroying cables and an electrical box in particular.

5G Arson Sabotage, Conspiracy Theories and UK

Wednesday, January 8th, 2020

+ IT | Regno Unito – Un bilancio degli attacchi incendiari ai piloni di telecomunicazione

+ ES | [Reino Unido] Un balance de los ataques incendiarios a las antenas de telecomunicaciones

According to corporate media another four Vodafone cell phone towers were torched in the 24 hours after the recent arson attacks targeting 5G infrastructure took place on April 2nd & 3rd. 3G and 4G towers were also part of those destroyed, although it’s unclear if they were unintentionally sabotaged or not. Information about the attacks themselves has been hard to ascertain due to limited information being issued by the mass media and rapid censorship of corporate social media.

Since the first attacks last week, at least 20 attacks are reported to have taken place across the country and there are reports of engineers also being questioned, harassed and attacked by people worried about 5G. It is clear that whilst everywhere is in lockdown the continued expansion and roll-out of 5G has remained a priority. The UK State regime and communications corporations were forced to issue a statement describing the risks that 5G poses to human health to be “baseless” and blamed the harassment and attacks on “conspiracy theories”. Social media corporation Facebook took down several pages dedicated to recording and apparently inciting the anti-5G attacks and also had their messaging app company WhatsApp limit the forwarding ability of messages. This is part of a cross-platform corporate attempt with Twitter, Google, Youtube etc to co-ordinate efforts together with the State to censor and track what they are describing as “misinformation” about the origins of Covid-19.
