nostate.net server seized by Dutch police

Not my politics but of interest maybe in terms of state clampdowns on extremist websites etc

It is surprising that no reason has been given as far as I can see?
________________________

The nostate.net server, with all the projects hosted on it, was seized by the Dutch police on March 29, 2021. We have no official information about the reasons for the seizure. The links on the right-hand side of the nostate.net main page now lead to the latest pages of the websites stored in the Internet Archive.

March 30, 2021

Note: the nostate.net server is also home to several anarchist-run websites, including the international information and translation projects Act for Freedom Now! and 325, which have existed since 2008 and 2006 respectively. Following the seizure, the sites can no longer be reached at their addresses.

325 are saying it was aimed at them, and based on a request from UK counter-terrorism police: https://www.amwenglish.com/articles/communique-from-325-collective-on-th...

Not much coverage of it at all, but it seems like there's a prosecution currently ongoing that appears to be linked to this:

Thanks for the update. Interesting that the judge made a point of saying “You enjoyed an alternative and communal lifestyle outside the mainstream”

Yeah, obviously not the best possible outcome for the defendant but seems like a bit of a relief in terms of the precedent that a terror conviction could've set.
