Biometric video surveillance in our supermarkets
In order to detect theft, Carrefour, Monoprix, Super U and Franprix [and Intermarché] are experimenting with biometric analysis software to monitor our every move in their stores.
The health crisis had already unleashed the desire of private companies for biometric surveillance: thermal cameras at company entrances, detection of physical distances in offices, tracking of eye movements for remote university exams… Several French companies are now proposing to automatically detect thefts in stores “in real time” thanks to biometric analysis software directly connected to the cameras already present in the stores [behavior detection software that then sends an immediate alert to the security guard’s smartphone with a copy of the images].
While the idea of automatically detecting theft in stores has already been tested in Japan, several French companies have not hesitated to develop their own software:

“We had never seen an intensive bird farm as disgusting as this. Birds shitting on each other whilst standing on wire mesh, a suffocating smell that we will not forget and cages so small the birds could barely stand.
The door proved to be easier than we thought. The lock took some convincing but our trusty bolt cutters were enough to access the shed. Once inside, we took 85 quails to safety.

Monday 17 May 2021, the famous millionaire boss of SpaceX and Tesla Elon Musk moved to Grünheide, a small town situated east of the German capital in the Brandebourg, to visit the site of his future luxury electric cars factory, which will be his fourth « Gigafactory » in the world (after those of the United States and China), exploiting 12 000 people. He announced its opening programmed for the end of 2021, where Tesla should produce a quota of 500 000 Model Y cars, but also battery cells, making it the biggest factory in Europe in the field.
In the night of 25 to Wednesday 26 at around 3am, his beautiful projects got a little smoke in their wings however and will be delayed. In fact, at about 250 metres from the Tesla factory site of Berlin/Grünheide – more precisely right next to the A10 motorway at the level of the Freienbrink exit – the Volcan group successfully set fire to six high voltage electric cables (110,000 volts) of the Edis company which supplied the site and were in a dedicated corridor behind a fence.

No Whistling In The Atlanta Forest: A Communique
This is a story about a couple of queers who gathered last night in Intrenchment Creek Park to reject destruction in the name of profit and power and to destroy the machinery of the nefarious polities that have defiled the Atlanta Forest. We have deep respect and regard for acknowledging that this is Muskogee land and was the site of horrific abuses, of displacement, chattel slavery, and prison slavery.
They set out meandering through the forest, touching undergrowth, brush, breathing the cleanest air in the city, feeling the wetland take them in as their heels sunk beneath them. After a short walk, they reached an artificial break in the embrace of the forest. They found themselves upon the intrepid mound of dirt, a site of destruction, a jarring crack in the rythym of the forest. In the distance, 7 unguarded machines were illuminated by the moonlight. They knew what they had to do.

” ‘The Ginger Pig’ have many stores across the city. Last night, we made our way to their branch near Clapham Common. This area has recently had a lot of attention on it after the murder of Sarah Everard at the hands of a police officer. Naturally, they swore more would plague the streets. Last night, their presence was definitely felt, we were feeling stubborn though.
After a series of close encounters, our target windows were in sight. And so was a delivery truck. Doors wide open, proudly displaying the cruelty that compelled us to be there. The additional delay wasn’t ideal but this came as a heavy reminder of what we were there to do and why we were there to do it. No matter how many blue lights and sirens ripped through the sky, we weren’t going to be deterred. The slim possibility of being thrown into a van handcuffed felt very minimal in comparison to the animals’ certainty of being thrown into one bloody and dismembered.

Claim for the OVH fire
We have to reveal a piece of information that the media around the world won’t fail to ignore. We believe we are behind the fire that devastated the data centre of OVH, the most important French web hosting company, in Strasbourg on Wednesday 10th March. OVH includes 400,000 servers, 32 data centres, 2,500 employees, a turnover of 600 million euros in 2019. How many kilowatts of energy used? We don’t know exactly. However we know that the digital sector consumed 10% of world electricity in 2015. It must be even worse today.
