Call Against The Technologies Of The Devastation, Against The Mobile Industry, Against The MWC.

category international | sci-tech | news report author Sunday February 09, 2020 15:39author by anarquistes conta la devastacioauthor email devastacio at riseup dot net Report this post to the editors


Since 24 till 27 of February the featured event of the ICT industry- the MWC is going to be held in Barcelona. This gathering is arranged by GSMA, one of the most important organization in the world and more powerful than many governments. This year more than hundred thousand of CEOs and businessmen will attend MWC. All of them are ready to pay around the 800 -5000 euros for each access ticket.

On the one hand, this lucrative industry is a part of world's GDP with more than 3,9 trillion dollars. On the other hand, behind all that great profit are destruction, pain and oppression. Mines of lithium, tantalum, copper and cobalt destroy ecosystems and native communities all around the world but mostly in Chile, Bolivia and Africa. Furthermore, mobile's factories contaminate with massive production and the waste is not recycled. As well the 14% of CO2, which cause global warming, comes from the use of the ICT.
Also the workers are exploited in many ways as low incomings, endlessness workdays and lack of any labor rights.
Moreover, the social media seemed to be able keep people closer by staying connected but instead pushes us away from each other and damages human relationships. At the same time, by using mobiles we are under police and state control all the time.

For these and more reasons we call from Barcelona for a week (22 till 29 of February) against the mobile industry and we encourage to take any action to fight it such as graffiti, leaflets, information acts…

MWC neither in Barcelona nor anywhere else!
Capitalism and States are the reason of the devastation of life on the Earth.
Against the techno industrial system.
