Camover Hits US West Coast-Surveillance Camera Destruction Going Rogue Worldwide

It started in Berlin: Anarchists, donning black bloc attire, hit the streets at night in pairs, small groups or alone to smash and dismantle the CCTV surveillance cameras adorning the city streets.

They posted videos and photos of their exploits online and called the guerrilla project Camover. The German collective gave a playful interview to Vice U.K. in which they explained that they are “a diverse group of people: Shoplifters eluding capitalism who don’t want to be monitored, passengers who don’t want to followed step by step and anarchists fighting everything that wants to control us.” Vice noted that the Berlin-based anarchists then laid down the gauntlet:

Camover have also recently announced a competition encouraging others to get involved. All you have to do to enter is think of a name that begins with the words “Brigade…” or “Command…” and that ends with the name of a historical personality, recruit a mob and smash up cameras. Then you send pictures and video evidence to their website, and they declare the winning footage.

The anti-surveillance project quickly spread throughout Germany, to Finland, Greece and hit the U.S. West Coast this month.

I've heard

That Silly String is quite effective against those.

It is about revenue. We used to have one on our main...

street corner thoroughfare, as it was the 10th deadliest in Georgia. They took the cameras out in 3 months, because they did not generate enough revenue. However, while in Arizona, I learned a red laser pointer makes an excellent tool for taking out a red-light camera. Think of it as a modern "Tea Party".

red laser pointer?

a red laser pointer will break or temporarily disable a red-light camera?

camera makers must love it

tax payer money anyway

sounds like the beginnings of

sounds like the beginnings of a revolution against big brother

Sounds like a Govt phishing job to me.

Doing something illegal and then posting it on line seems dodgy to me.

I am going to pout the rest of the night.


Here's an alternative: If you

Here's an alternative:

If you really oppose traffic cameras so much, cover them (or their detectors) with a layer of masking tape & then a layer of duct tape. The camera, while yes vandalized, is then dysfunctional.

if it was just gov cameras I

if it was just gov cameras I wouldn't be pissed but they're taking out homes and businesses, I should be allowed to have a camera of my own on my own personal property. Be careful who you associate yourself with ya know?

I don't like this

It's destruction of property, one of the three pillars of things that ought to be protected (the other two being life and liberty). I don't want us to trade morals away.

false flags

are getting craftier and craftier. Creating greater work force and revenue for dhs intelligence. Justifying their existence. We can do better. Use your words, child!

Uhhh...I was just about to

Uhhh...I was just about to post that!

They're eluding capitalism by engaging in theft....yeh, that makes a whole lot of no sense.

The end result of Marxist communism is...anarchy. Marx said it himself. So if one is an anarchist, that makes you a communist by default. Don't blame me, Marx said it. His, "end game," would result in world anarchy....back to the freaking stone age for everyone.

No thank you.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Someone in comments mentioned voting the bums out, but I don't know how possible that would be since, as far as I can tell, just about every election is rigged.

Krystalnacht and the Dialectic at work... when will freedom

This is simply a new twist for the NWO and CFR, on an old, tried and tested theme... Krystalnacht and the Dialectic at work... when will freedom patriots learn to see the deceit at work?

Chess is a great study to understand the machinations of men who would be kings! It is past time the liberty movement learned that all things which appear or sound like freedom, come at a price!

That price is either blood shed for true constitutional freedom and liberty, or that price is greater tyranny when the dialectical anarchy is sprung and the people beg for safety and power to overrule liberty!

These groups are obviously the latter! If the people really wanted freedom they would already have voted out their idiots! Watch government grow over the next few weeks, in response to these dialectical acts!

drones and cameras are for target practice?

Althouh I agree with the issue that these guys have with cameras

they are damaging private property in some of these situations. A shop owner would have good reason to put up security cameras in front of their store. They would not want their storefronts to be vandalized at their expense. Police watching live cameras? In my opinion, that's another more sinister situation.

the problem with the private ones is that they

cover a large area and are watching outside their property. They are invading my private property and public property. They are tracking everybody who comes and goes from my property for instance. But there is no real way to stop this because as someone already mentioned, cameras are getting smaller and smaller and are easy to hide. 1984 is here.

What these people are succeeding at is stimulating the economy though. Just kidding!

In ten years

they'll be too small to see and hidden everywhere.


Music extremely annoying.

Sunglasses as night

The original 80s song by Cory Hart music video depicted an Orwellian future in which he wore his sunglasses at night to avoid big brother identifying him in the streets in a surveillance state
