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.

”The mass pickets and protests against the curfew and the increase in restrictive measures to stop the coronavirus pandemic have resulted yesterday night with dozens of people arrested and police officers injured in cities such as Barcelona, Burgos , Sevilla, Bilbao, Santander. etc.
The most serious incidents took place in Barcelona, where 14 people were arrested -two of them minors- and 30 were injured -20 Mossos d’Esquadra agents, three urban guards and seven citizens-, in the clashes that took place in the center of Barcelona at the end of a demonstration against the new restrictions of the Generalitat.

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.

The general crisis – health, economic, institutional–continues to tighten its grip. We are just at the start. And the stench of the spectre of semi-lockdown, which will be worse than the first, is starting to be felt ».
WHY A HALF LOCKDOWN IS WORSE THAN A WHOLE ONE
The newspapers are now saying it for certain: maximum 7-10 days. It should be noted that every prediction, in recent weeks, has been “revised” in advance of the facts. But what will semi-lockdown be? It will still be the old mass quarantine, like last spring, with the difference that we will keep going to work.
In this permanent dystopia reality will continue to surpass the most perverse fantasy of science fiction writers: not just a virus that reduces humanity to house arrest, we are now facing a society in which people only leave their domestic cells to go to be exploited. As written in the latest issue of “Vetriolo”, just out, “the energies of the exploited in our time are frozen, in many senses, only to be thawed at the moment of production” (Cf. “Vetriolo”, n. 5 , Stato di pandemia [Pandemic state]). A post-consumerist capitalism, in which the old produce-consume-drop-dead, has been reduced to the binary process: produce-drop-dead. In this system women and men of flesh and blood are only useful if they are able to work.
Will the exploited allow themselves to be locked in the freezer? (more…)

In solidarity with anarchist prisoners
Detention conditions in Italian prisons continue to worsen; in the face of the COVID emergency, the demands of the prisoners have remained mostly unheeded, triggering riots in tens of prisons, followed by strong State repression, with punitive transfers and criminal proceedings. In those riots, many prisoners died. The responsibility for those deaths belongs to the State. The changes made by the prison systems since last spring have in many cases meant a reduction in contacts with the outside world, reductions in activities, isolation, making prison conditions increasingly unlivable. To date, there are no signs of improvement, although there would have been plenty of time to act on the situation. The new provisions do not bode well, with even more restrictive measures for the high security sections and an extension of the use of the 41bis regime1 of slow torture that aims to bend the basic structures of individual identities.
In the face of this, those who dare to be against prisons, against the state that manages them and the society that needs them, those who carry out practices of solidarity inside and outside the walls, are increasingly locked up on this side of these walls. The latest anti anarchist investigations are clearly a way to oppose solidarity brought to anarchist prisoners. (more…)

Refugees demonstrating after the burning of Moria. “Azadi!” Freedom!
In the following report from Greece, anarchists describe the burning of the refugee camp, Moria, and the response countrywide, as well as the latest chapter in other struggles against state repression on a variety of fronts.
A report by Radio Fragmata.
Another month, another report on the situation here in Greece. There has been no pause in the repression of the state, nor any peace for the marginalized and excluded. Another historic squat has been evicted, the economic despair many already face is becoming generalized, society drifts towards the right at the guidance of state and corporate media, and the largest concentration camp housing migrants in all of Europe has been engulfed in flames, displacing thousands.
As in the rest of the world, each morning brings new concerns, new disasters, new forms of precarity. We share the following information in the pursuit of a relentless and borderless solidarity.

Moria Burns—The Greek State Plays Victim
The refugee camp Moria on the island of Lesvos has burned down.
The state claims this was the result of demonstrations by desperate people inside the camp reacting to new measures the police had opportunistically declared in response to an inevitable and now unavoidable outbreak of COVID-19 inside the camp. Some 35 cases have been made public as of early September; considering the intense overcrowding of the camp, the number should be assumed to be much higher. Some wonder whether nearby fascists took the opportunity to set fires under the cover of the refugees’ protests. It is certain that some of the villagers wanted those fleeing the flames to burn alive, as they pushed those who tried to flee to the nearby village of Mytilene back towards the blaze. (more…)

De la revista 325 (próximamente en español):
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.

From 325 #12:
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.

Pedro fallece hoy en un hospital de Santiago de Chile en medio de una Pandemia. Don pedro ingresó en el recinto hospitalario por otros motivos, en dicha situación se contagió de COVID-19 y su cuerpo -como el de muchos hombres y mujeres que se han perdido en esta pandemia de mierda-, sucumbió al virus.
Don Pedro tiene también una historia de lucha, de una lucha quizás menos visible como lo es aquella lucha de las familias, de los entornos más cercanos a los compañeros represaliados. Don Pedro estuvo junto a su hijo –Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda– cuando por primera vez fue detenido en noviembre de 1987, Marcelo tenía por esos días 14 años de edad y conoció las cárceles de la dictadura. También estuvo en 1992 luego de que su hijo fuera herido y apresado, por los siguientes 12 años, y estuvo, más tarde, el 2008, cuando en amplios operativos internacionales, su hijo fue expuesto y confinado en cárceles del territorio controlado por el Estado argentino, y luego, como rehén, trasladado a las mazmorras de las cárceles chilenas.

Elephant in the room – Bringing down the dictatorship. Interview on protests in Belarus
Since Sunday streets in Belarus are filled with rage of protesters trying to bring down the dictatorship. People from all parts of the society have been clashing in the night of August 9 in 33 different cities around the country. They are fighting against president Lukashenko who is ruling the country for the last 26 years.
We got together with one of comrades from Belarus who is living in emigration and clarified some things that are happening in Belarus right now.
How did the Belarusians come to rebellion against the dictatorship
If you had asked people in Belarus how long the dictatorship of Lukashenko was left in early 2020, they would have looked at you like a fool. In a respected dictatorship, such questions are not asked, because you know what can happen. And in general, it so happens that the reign of the great leader is timeless. But the situation has changed so radically over the last 8 months that Belarusians took to the streets and for the first time in the new history of Belarus they fought back the police in at least 33 different cities of the country.
Today Belarusians have woken up in a new country. In it, people openly talk about hatred for the government and prepare for a violent confrontation with the police and state. They discuss online and live effective methods of struggle. Several factories went on strike the day after the elections. (more…)

En un contexto global de pandemia continuamos editando CONFRONTACIÓN, mientras en Chile y el mundo el sistema de dominación se fortalece y extiende a través de la tecnología, la presencia policial y militar, la intoxicación comunicacional, la enfermedad, la muerte y la manipulación a través de la difusión social del miedo por parte del poder.
En Chile, la pandemia trajo consigo también un retrotraimiento de la revuelta y de la conflictividad callejera masificada desde el 18 de octubre de 2019, teniendo algunos rebrotes de rabia en los últimos meses. Por eso en esta edición reflexionamos sobre temas necesarios y contingentes desde perspectivas anárquicas e insurrectas de CONFRONTACIÓN.
Dedicamos este número a la memoria del compañero Mauricio Morales y enviamos nuestro calor insurrecto a lxs compañerxs anárquicxs Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar, encarceladxs recientemente acusadxs de atentados explosivos contra policías, representantes y símbolos del poder. Con ellxs está la solidaridad anárquica que es palabra y acción.

The following text is a translation by Anarchists Worldwide of an article from Estallido Antisocial / Antisocial Outburst, a new anarchist publication from Chile. You can download a copy of the publication HERE.
The Quarantine of Fascism in Peru
The presence of the military and the police is normalized and applauded by a large part of the population.
The repression of the Peruvian state against the population or “the disobedient” as they say, is the same as what they do in protests or during any curfew in a territory in conflict with an extractive industry, with a company that exploits its workers or that pollutes us like Monsanto on our tables, like the mining companies in the mountains, the oil companies in the jungle, and so on.
This repression of “the disobedient” comes with humiliations such as doing exercises as if it were a barracks or a military or police drill. There are also beatings and haircuts with the approval and mockery of people who inhabit the neighborhoods and they start recording the situations when the same agents who exercise the repression in Peru and other countries such as Ecuador or the Dominican Republic carry it out.
Another situation that has been seen is the applause, celebration and cheering by citizens in the face of the curfew and the arrival in the streets of the military, police and municipal police, forgetting what this decree has historically meant as an instrument of repression that has also reappeared in countries like Chile.
