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…)

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.

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.

“We’re creating an environment where in a year or two, not five, the whole world will look at Bristol for the future of smart cities.”
– Dimitra Simeonidou, High Performance Networks Lab, Bristol University
The city of Bristol, south west U.K., has begun a multi-million pound experiment to create the ‘smart-city’ of the future, which would cement Bristol as a global leader in the telecommunications world. The wider area of Avon (mainly the ‘post-industrial’ estates of Bristol and Bath) already hosts the largest digital technology sector in the British Isles outside of London, and receives funding from the government as such.
City authorities and allied technological entrepreneurs are working to kit out Bristol with a city-wide ‘digital fabric’ of the very latest in sensor and connectivity technology, to make it the world’s first open ‘programmable city’. A high-speed fibre-optic network (making use of disused cable ducting owned by the council) is being combined with a new ‘city operating system’ that will power an experimental network. In the coming spring of 2016, 1,500 sensor-equipped lampposts are being launched around the city; the vast majority of Bristol will be covered in a Radio Frequency (RF) mesh. This is predicted to revolutionise the way that emergency response, traffic management and other municipal services are handled, and track certain vehicle locations, with eventual alleged trickle-down ‘benefits’ such as informing residents of parking spaces and air pollution (ahem, from those parking spaces) in an increasingly mechanised and technified environment.
