'Anarchists' try to bomb Swiss IBM nano facility (but fail)

Brian Wang brings to our attention a Daily Mail article:

A routine traffic-stop in Switzerland has allegedly thwarted eco-terrorists from blowing up the site of the £55million nano-technology HQ of IBM in Europe…

The group describes itself as anarchist and is opposed to all forms of micro-technology as well as nuclear power and weapons…

The IBM facility that the Il Silvestre group was targeting is still under construction.  When finished, it will contain the most state-of-the-art facilities in Europe for nano-and-bio-technological research, with the probability of billions of pounds in profit for IBM.

The article describes the suspects as ‘eco-terrorists’ but I am not sure we should encourage them by using that term.  (Or ‘anarchists” either, for that matter—peaceful anarchists should object to that.)

The more terrorism there is, the more we need Open Source Sensing.  —Chris Peterson
