“Last night Inside Out Security in New Basford had it’s windows smashed.
We did this because they are responsible for making surveillance equipment that watches us everywhere we go. They are specifically responsible for a large number of CCTV cameras in schools around Nottingham. These cameras in schools further stigmatise and terrorise the young, positioning them as the dangers to each other, training them to become used to being watched, controlling their behaviour and taking away their freedom. Instead of encouraging the young to love and live with wild passion this society is caging them- forcing them into lives not of their choosing.
We want to destroy these companies that profit from the sickness of social surveillance on behalf of capitalism and the state.
We also did this in solidarity with those who resist the G8 and G20 conferences occurring in France this week. While the government leaders from around the world discuss ways to keep their power, we will fight their systems of oppression that are all around us.
So their surveillance is there to protect us? Fuck that. Their cameras exist to make us live in fear, to do as we are told, to make us feel alienated and scared of one another. The surveillance system is there to serve the interests of the rich and protect their property, power and capital.
We see something that destroys our freedom, our relationships with each other and we wish to attack it with the means we have available. So whilst this was a small act of defiance, quickly remedied in part by their insurance, we carry out this act because of the very fact that we search for freedom from all forms of social control. Every time we see similar acts of rebellion, from throwing rocks at cops to the burning of a prison, a smile spreads across our face and recognition that the attack against this society of domination continues. We will continue our participation in this attack, because it is our passion- settling for a life of meaningless subordination is not an option for us, not when all around us are examples of our friends, families and ourselves being continually fucked over by rampant capitalism, and the colluding state.
We must look to each other with love and solidarity.
We must destroy what keeps us apart with rage.
Against the prison society.
For total freedom.”

“A violent tool of the state and capitalism, bailiffs are a tool on the poor and as such deserve to be treated with fury and contempt. And last night they were.
M.A Julius and Co. of New Basford, Nottingham were paid a visit last night. Their windows were smashed and messages were left, “Fuck the Rich”, “Leave our homes alone” and “Fuck Bailiffs” were painted on the walls of their offices.
This was in solidarity with all of those, including ourselves who have had the indignity from being evicted from homes because the system we live in rewards the selfish greed of the privileged few and punishes the excluded and marginalized. As the cuts come more and more people will struggle to cope, and more and more will be put into debt, and more and more will have their doors broken down by agents of the capitalism. This action is a sign that there will be retaliation, that the controllers of capital and their stooges will not have it all their own way.
Smash the rich and fuck capital. Hammer and Paint”
