Technology has always been a powerful ally for domination. Today, however, it is one of its most important weapons. So technology has invaded every corner of our daily lives. “Smart phones, smart watches, smart homes, even smart cities. All ready and configured for our convenience. Behind this apparent convenience given to us, there is a huge business. A massive collection of information about each individual person.
The mobile phone companies clearly have a stake in this situation. Always available to give out conversations, messages and any other information they have, they have proven many times over that they are in full cooperation with the institutions of power.
One of these times was the dystopian period 2020-2021. At the first hint of “mass incarceration”, these companies rushed to console the people with packages of offers, to sugarcoat the pill of every person who had to stay at home at all costs.
Still, they were and still are one of the main means of social control, as movements are mainly allowed by text message, while at any time the civil protection can send messages, with ridiculous sirens sounding.
Beyond this social context and the pandemic condition, we are well aware of how these companies provide the ‘desired’ information to the cops when they want to build new case files and open new cycles of prosecution. Wiretaps of phone conversations, surveillance of individuals through cell phone stigmas, have many times been evidence for indictments of militants, tailored to the preferences of state security. In every corner of the world, this cooperation has helped the authorities to identify their enemies, imprison them and try to eliminate them by any means.
Our hatred for this rotten world is tearing down your borders, ripping up your antennas and leaving only smoke, sending our signals of solidarity.
Thus, on Sunday, April 25, we set fire to a COSMOTE car on March 25, Triandria.
We dedicate the action to the comrades Monica, Marcelo, Joaquin, Juan,Pablo, Jose, Tomas, Gonzalo who started a hunger strike on March 22 in the Chilean hellhole prisons with demands:
- The abolition of Article 9 and the restoration of Article 1 of Decree-Law 321, which regulates “conditional freedom (conditional release of a prisoner)”, thus turning the right into a privilege
-The release of comrade Marcelo, who has been imprisoned for over 25 years for actions against the state and capital
-The end of the preventive imprisonment of those accused of actions in the context of the insurrection until sentencing.
-The rejection of the convictions of Marcelo and Juan, who were subjected to torture without the right to a defense.
We see the enemy worldwide constantly upgrading its means of targeting individuals and repression. So let us not turn our backs thinking that it is far from our reality. Let us therefore organise ourselves, arm ourselves, arm our thinking and our desires, so that we can become that dangerous flame that they fear will eventually burn out those who are trying in every way to extinguish it.
