Committee for Liquidation and Subversion of Computers (CLODO) (in French: Comité Liquidant ou Détournant les Ordinateurs, 'Clodo' being a slang word for the homeless) was a French anarchist organization,[1] active during the 1980s, that targeted computer companies. In 1980, after a series of attacks in the Toulouse area, they released a statement to the French media in which they explained their motivations. It read, “We are workers in the field of data processing and consequently well placed to know the current and future dangers of data processing and telecommunications. The computer is the favorite tool of the dominant. It is used to exploit, to put on file, to control, and to repress." Their major attack was in 1983, when they firebombed the Sperry-Univac Company, in Toulouse.
