Contra la Vigilancia del Estado de Reino Unido – Contra el CCTV de Reconocimiento Facial

CONTRA LA VIGILANCIA DEL ESTADO DE REINO UNIDO – CONTRA EL CCTV DE RECONOCIMIENTO FACIAL

Gran Bretaña es un Estado autoritario de vigilancia, que ha sido pionero en el aspecto de muchas de las sociedades modernas; que están completamente cubiertos por cámaras de seguridad en casi cada punto urbano, plaza, camino, esquina, tienda, autobús, tren, etc. Parcialmente en un estado de perpetua decadencia y deterioro, aquí han construido una vida como si fuera una gran prisión, y es como se ve su mundo. Sociedad carcelaria un sinfín de monótonos centros comerciales, urbanizaciones, bloques de pisos, áreas industriales y recreativas, las cuales son capaces de encerrarlos en un corto plazo. Simulacros de respuesta antiterrorista de múltiples agencias a gran escala practicados regularmente para posibles ataques terroristas o disturbios en el centro de la ciudad. Los medios de control mental emiten mentiras, medias verdades, distracciones, deseos imposibles de consumismo, mañana, tarde y noche. Cada evento masivo potencialmente perturbador, crisis social y ambiental, es promocionado por los medios como una amenaza de un final tan abrupto a la normalidad que al menos todos los recursos de la policía serán tan escasos que los militares tendrán que involucrarse para restaurar el orden bajo la ley marcial. Austeridad, inundaciones, Brexit, inmigración, islamismo. Los discursos e ideologías reaccionarias, racistas, nacionalistas están en todas partes; grupos neonazis, religiosos y de extrema derecha se están reagrupando. La idea anarquista y de la eco-acción se les llaman “extremismo” o “terrorismo”, en el doble discurso del estado policial. Nunca habrá ninguna posibilidad de cambio individual, social y ambiental sin la recreación de la vida diaria en una existencia que refleje nuestros deseos, pasiones y alegrías, en lugar de ser un engranaje en su sistema de miedo. Asimismo, no hay posibilidad de ningún cambio social sin una insurrección, una guerra social. (more…)

Against Surveillance State UK – Against Facial Recognition CCTV

Against Surveillance State UK – Against Facial Recognition CCTV

Britain is an authoritarian surveillance State, which has pioneered how many modern societies look; entirely covered by security cameras at almost every urban point, place, square, road, corner, shop, bus, train, etc. Partially perpetually in a state of decay and disrepair, here they have built a life almost as in a vast prison, and it is what their world looks like. Prison society; endless drab shopping centres, housing estates, tower blocks, industrial and recreational areas capable of being on lock-down at short notice. Regularly practised large-scale multi-agency counter-terror response drills to terrorist attacks, inner-city riots. Mind-control media beams out lies, half-truths, distractions, impossible consumer desires, morning, noon and night. Every potentially disruptive mass event, social and environmental crisis, is hyped by the media as threatening such an abrupt end to normality that at least all the police’s resources will be stretched so thin that the military will have to be involved to restore order under martial law. Austerity, flooding, Brexit, immigration, Islamism. Reactionary, racist, nationalist discourses and ideologies are everywhere; religious and far-right neo-nazi groups are regrouping. Anarchist and eco-action is called “extremism” or “terrorism”, in the double-speak of the police-state. There will never be any chance of individual, social and environmental change without the recreation of daily life into an existence that reflects our desires, passions and joys, rather than a cog in their system of fear. Likewise there is zero possibility of any social change without an insurrection, a social war. (more…)

Inside the surveillance capital of Europe (UK)

From 325 #2 / April 2005
The evolution and spread of the industrial-technological surveillance state in the 7 years since this text was written has been fast-paced and this text is archived here for reference and interest. If an active critique of the totalitarian mechanisms of social control was necessary in 2005, the same critique is even more needed now; against these advancing forms of technical domination and the hierarchical society which demands them. For war against the existent…

Britain is full of companies involved in the worst kinds of financial activity, the population is terrorised by government-media campaigns, held captive by aggressive borders, and attacked by violent police who kill with impunity. Behind the ‘democratic’ facade is Empire, enforced by ever more complex means. Every day people are scrutinised under intense surveillance and subjected to the highest levels of consumer propaganda. The authorities are enthusiastic advocates of control technology in all of its guises and have long set the benchmarks for others across the globe. There are an estimated 4.5 million CCTV cameras installed across the country: one per 14 people. This tidal wave of CCTV certainly shows no signs of abating, if anything it is gaining momentum, Britain is on the verge of a Closed-Circuit Television transformation – Companies and researchers are pushing the latest development – Digital, or ‘Smart’ CCTV.
