In November 2020 a series of co-ordinated raids against 325.nostate.net were executed by Counter-Terrorism cops in UK as part of “Operation Adream”. Several properties in the South-West of England were searched and one person was arrested and charged under the Terrorist Act. The charges are administration of 325.nostate.net, funding of terrorism through the website and dissemination of and collection of material useful to terrorists.
Submitted to Enough 14.
The investigation is still on going and clear information has been difficult to obtain as national security measures are in effect and ‘evidence’ (including surveillance footage) has not even been disclosed to the defendant himself.
The comrade, Toby Shone, was bailed from November 2020 to February 2021 when he was
re-arrested and remanded to HMP Wandsworth in London where is still being held.
Toby will likely be moved from HMP Wandsworth to HMP Bristol in September.
The attack on 325.nostate.net is a landmark attempt by the state to silence dissent and radical critical thinking and can be seen as part of the general crackdown in the UK against protest, counter-information and alternative thinking and lifestyles as evidenced by the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill 2021 (which resulted in the Kill the Bill protests), the Covert Human Intelligences Sources (Criminal Conduct) Act 2021 which extends the powers of spycops and the reforms of the Judicial Reviews procedure which will make it harder to bring legal action against government policy.
People are welcome to attend the trial at Bristol Crown Court starting 6 October 2021.
