Presenting 56 pages of anti-organisational, insurrectional, anti-civilisation anarchy of the 21st Century. A collection of critical texts and letters from anarchist points of view examining the new changes in production and social control brought about by new technologies which are ushering in a totalising prison-world and the advance of smarter-than-human machines. This issue of 325 builds on the considerations and content of the last issue which took as it’s focus the subject of the Technological Singularity. Six years later, the mechanisms, ideologies and impacts of this global dystopian project are nearer and clearer and the texts you will read in this new issue deal with the emerging realities of these technological revolutions.
For the first time, 325 is coming out in 3 languages: First in English, with Spanish and Italian to follow. Printed copies are available, but we also encourage people to print out their own copies and distribute them in their area.

Against the Technology of Control
Face the Fear – Fight the Future
The COVID-19 pandemic is part of the techno-prison world known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The lockdowns and the quarantine laws are designed to intimidate people into obeying, Let’s break the rules, riot in the streets and attack the Technocratic State that will use 5G to build this matrix.
Fascism as a political project has always looked like this:
‘State of Emergency’ laws suspending any granted ‘rights’
Control of the media and censorship
Personal relationships recorded and controlled
Local and international movement restricted
Police control of everyday life
Necessities dictated and controlled
Behaviour modification on mass scale
Sudden, arbitrary and ambiguous legislation to wear down population
Using the fear of endangering others to control individuals (collective punishment)
Party members immune from rule of law
Our enslavement relies on our compliance.
ORGANISE / RESISTANCE
Contre la technologie du contrôle
Affronter la peur – combattre le futur
La pandémie de COVID-19 fait partie du monde/prison technologique connu sous le nom de Quatrième révolution industrielle. Les confinements et les lois instituant la quarantaine sont conçues pour intimider les gens et les pousser à l’obéissance.
Brisons les règles, révoltons nous dans les rues et attaquons l’État technocratique qui utilisera la 5G pour construire cette matrice.
Le fascisme en tant que projet politique a toujours ressemblé à ça :
Des « lois d’état d’urgence » qui suspendent tous les « droits » octroyés.
Le contrôle des médias et la censure.
L’enregistrement et le contrôle des relations personnelles
L’interdiction des protestations.
Les restriction de déplacement, au niveau national et international.
L’encouragement à la délation.
Le contrôle policier de la vie de tous les jours.
Des besoins dictés et contrôlés.
La modification du comportement à une échelle de masse.
Une législation soudaine, arbitraire et ambiguë, pour épuiser la population.
L’utilisation de la peur de mettre les autres en danger pour contrôler les individus (punition collective).
Les membres d’un parti sont à l’abri des lois.
Notre asservissement repose sur notre respect des règles.
ORGANISER LA RÉSISTANCE

Born in Ravensburg in 1938, Klaus Schwab is a child of Adolf Hitler’s Germany, a police-state regime built on fear and violence, on brainwashing and control, on propaganda and lies, on industrialism and eugenics, on dehumanisation and “disinfection”, on a chilling and grandiose vision of a “new order” that would last a thousand years.
Schwab seems to have dedicated his life to reinventing that nightmare and to trying to turn it into a reality not just for Germany but for the whole world.
Worse still, as his own words confirm time and time again, his technocratic fascist vision is also a twisted transhumanist one, which will merge humans with machines in “curious mixes of digital-and-analog life”, which will infect our bodies with “Smart Dust” and in which the police will apparently be able to read our brains.
And, as we will see, he and his accomplices are using the Covid-19 crisis to bypass democratic accountability, to override opposition, to accelerate their agenda and to impose it on the rest of humankind against our will in what he terms a “Great Reset“.
Schwab is not, of course, a Nazi in the classic sense, being neither a nationalist nor an anti-semite, as testified by the $1 million Dan David Prize he was awarded by Israel in 2004.

“Andare alla radice”
È uscito l´opuscolo “Andare alla radice” contenente un intervista di John Zerzan a Marco Camenisch.
In una soleggiata cucina del sudest della Svizzera ho preso parte a questa magnifica conversazione con uno dei miei eroi, Marco Camenisch, e un caro amico che gli aveva più volte fatto visita durante i molti anni passati in prigione. Quest’incontro aveva per me un valore importantissimo, soprattutto perché, a differenza di Matteo, avevo conosciuto Marco solo la notte prima. Scriversi è una cosa, per quanto molto preziosa, ma di certo nulla può sostituire la possibilità di sedere faccia a faccia, l’uno di fronte all’altro. La nostra causa comune, per come la vedo io, è quella di eliminare la civilizzazione, la sua marcia funebre, e sostituirla con comunità di rapporti diretti, faccia a faccia. La società di massa ha soppresso la comunità. Ogni volta che ci s’incontra, come nel nostro caso, ci si prepara al suo ritorno. La nostra esplorazione ha ravvivato in ciascuno di noi l’anelito profondo per un nuovo mondo. È presente in ognuno, per quanto soffocato o deformato, nonostante le mastodontiche e onnipresenti forze contrarie. Le ore passate in così buona compagnia mi hanno rigenerato, stando assieme a guerrieri che non si arrendono. Prima di tornare in Italia con Matteo, ho salutato Marco che stava pulendo il pavimento della cucina della casa dove alcuni compagni ci avevano ospitato. Sorrideva e canticchiava, e questo mi ha reso ancor più felice!

“Andare alla radice”
The booklet “Going to the root” has been published with an interview by John Zerzan with Marco Camenisch.
In a sunny southeastern Swiss kitchen I took part in this wonderful conversation with one of my heroes, Marco Camenisch, and a dear friend who had visited him several times during his many years in prison. This meeting had a very important value for me, especially because, unlike Matteo, I had met Marco only the night before. Writing is one thing, though very precious, but certainly nothing can stop you from sitting face to face, one in front of the other. Our common cause, as I see it, is to eliminate civilization, its funeral march, and replace it with a community of direct, face-to-face relationships. Mass society has suppressed the community. Every time we meet, as in our case, we prepare for its return. Our exploration has enlivened in each of us the deep yearning for a new world. It is present in each one of us, no matter how stifled or deformed, despite the mastodontic and omnipresent opposing forces. The hours spent in such good company have regenerated me, being together with warriors who do not give up. Before returning to Italy with Matteo, I said goodbye to Marco who was cleaning the kitchen of the house where some of our comrades had hosted us. He was smiling and humming, and that made me even happier!

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.

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

The voice of the North / Friday July 3, 2020
Finally, on May 3 at around 1:30 a.m., the fire at the Orange 5-SFR antenna relay planted on rue Gustave-Eiffel, in the industrial zone of Douai-Dorignies, was indeed deemed criminal. After thinking that the destruction of this equipment was accidental, the investigators considered another avenue and the Douai prosecutor’s office utilised the judicial police.
Two months of work were not too much to put names on the suspects. This Tuesday, six people (five men, including a minor, and a woman) were arrested by the criminal brigade of the interregional direction of the judicial police (DIPJ) of Lille, with the support of the research and intervention brigade. Domiciled in Roubaix and Villeneuve d’Ascq, these suspects, “all close to circles advocating a form of violent protest” according to the DIPJ which announces these arrests, were placed in police custody. According to the Douai prosecutor’s office, they come from antifa circles, black blocks or even the movement of yellow vests.
Quickly, the only woman in the group was left free and will not be prosecuted. The other five were brought to justice. The four major suspects, aged 22 to 32, were brought before the prosecutor on Thursday. Two of them were remanded in the evening, the other two left free under judicial supervision.
All four were presented for immediate appearance before the Douai Criminal Court on Friday afternoon and, at their request, their trial was postponed.
The minor, originally from Pas-de-Calais, was indicted by a judge of the judicial court of Béthune for “destruction of property in an organized gang and association of criminals with a view to committing an offense”, Indicates the DIPJ, then placed under judicial control.
The destruction of this relay antenna would have caused “damage estimated between € 300,000 and € 500,000”.

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.
Sabotage the Techno-Industrial System!

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…)

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.

Bristol Mast Fire
Fourteen arson attacks against telecommunications and mobile phone masts in the Bristol and Bath area took place over the last decade.
This imaginal map is an attempt to show a rough sketch of how these attacks were spread over a large area.
The Earth is being rapidly destroyed by a matrix of greed, consumerism, technology and industrial exploitation which has poisoned the air, rivers and land, harmed all living beings and made millions of species extinct.
These attacks caused substantial losses for the capitalist companies and shows that the system can be sabotaged through organisation and direct action. One way to hit the system is by economic and strategic sabotage in all fronts.
The cost of the damage can never equate to the profits the system loots from our lives everyday and the damage that it has done to the Earth.
Despite years of police repression against the anarchist movement no one has been charged with the fires but the cops have accused a fugitive anarchist comrade ‘Badger’ for involvement in one incendiary strike in 2013 that took out police radio, Vodafone services and TV and digital coverage to 80,000 homes and businesses.
The action was claimed by the FAI/ELF – Horizons of Burning Rage.
Police also accuse Badger of trashing the windows of right-wing rag ‘Bristol Post’ in the riots of 2011. Innocent or guilty is irrelevant to our solidarity.
Stay free Badger – Long live anarchy!
International solidarity to Badger

“On Wednesday 12th June, when someone shouted out that drones had started flying above them, everyone opened up their umbrellas almost simultaneously.”
Four texts from Dialectical Delinquents:
Wednesday, February 5th, 2020
“A crime against humanity is taking place before our eyes.
This crime, born in the brains of biologists and committed through the means of medicine and genetics, presents itself outwardly as a good deed and an emancipation for mankind.
A good deed for victims of sterility (organic or due to the chemical and industrial poisoning of the environment), for single women and couples of the same sex who are naturally infertile.
Emancipation from the living – spontaneous, autonomous and unpredictable – from the constraints of nature from which derives birth with all its uncertainties.
This crime is eugenics (at first called viriculture or aristogenics), the artificial selection of the human species, renamed this way in 1883 by Galton, a cousin of Darwin and also co-inventor of biometrics together with Karl Pearson (1857-1936). Or again race hygiene (Rassenhgyiene) in 1904, by Alfred Ploetz and Ernst Rüdin, two Nazi doctors. …”
