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…)

Spring attacks from Informal Anarchist Federation (Italy, Greece, Switzerland)

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

Attacks by the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) across three countries in Europe. The targets are directed at military, nuclear-industrial and prison targets within the frame of international revolutionary solidarity. The European authorities are trying to withhold details of the claims accompanying the explosive devices for purpose of denying the ‘value of propaganda’.

30 March 2011 – Olten, Switzerland: A package bomb exploded in the offices of Swissnuclear (the Federation of the Swiss nuclear industry) giving two office workers superficial burns. The attack is claimed by the FAI who outline a vision of their ideas and vindicate the action in solidarity with Silvia, Costas and Luca who are imprisoned accused of planning to attack a center of IBM nanotechnology in Rüschlikon, Zürich.

31 March 2011 – Livorno, Italy: A package bomb has been delivered to the Ruspoli barracks, a center of the Parachutist Brigade Commando which serves in Afghanistan. A soldier remains hurt and crippled. Lieutenant colonel, chief of general staff of the Brigade, highest in degree at the moment in the barracks. The explosion has amputated three fingers of the hand and injuries to the face and the legs. The target was carried away in a state of shock to the first aid. The soldiers at the moment do not supply details. Police investigation is underway. A claim of responsibility accompanied the explosion by the Informal Anarchist Federation.

31 March 2011 – Korydallos, Greece: The Director of Korydallos Prison receives a package bomb but it is detected and defused by technicians of the Greek police. From the Greek corporate press it is learned that inside of the destined package bomb to the director there was a claim of responsibility in the name of the Informal Anarchist Federation. The text has not been published, but Greek journalists report that a draft of two pages in Italian in which is mentioned solidarity to the captive companions of the revolutionary organization Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, and beyond to other prisoners locked up in the prisons of Switzerland, Germany and Chile.
