In 1970, the United States of America set up its first military base in Pine Gap, Australia. Originally, less than 500 American citizens were based at the camp. It is reported in the main stream media that the military base was originally intended to provide the American military an appropriately isolated base to set up antenna to receive satellite signals not available in the United States, perform testing of weaponry and surveillance of South East Asian countries.
There are many reports derived from main stream media and alternative media sources about the American Governments introduction of FEMA camps to Australia, however the focus of most of these reports are based around the Pine Gap facility in the Northern Territory of Australia.
Sadly, for the Australian and American people, there are many other authorised camp’s that could be used as FEMA camps instantly. Some of these options are already being used to manage illegal immigrants.
So where could the Australian and American government’s set-up FEMA camps with very little notice?
The Broadmeadows Army Camp was originally used to house ‘legal’ immigrants as they made their way into Australia in the 60’s and 70’s. These legal immigrants were aptly known as 10 pound poms. Although this facility is currently used for training new army recruits, because it is located only 5 km from the Melbourne Airport, is situated in a residential area and has facilities setup to house large numbers of people, it is perfectly setup to hold large numbers of civilians.
The Villawood detention centre is located around 27 kilometres west of the central business district of Sydney. It was constructed on the site of the former Villawood Munitions Factory, which operated on the site from 1941 until the close of World War II. The Villawood detention centre is now used to control and manage upt o 600 illegal immigrants. This facility is privately run and can be immediately turned into a camp / control access point on demand by the Australian Federal Government.
At the moment, this detention centre is closed (renamed Camp Rapier). It was originally intended to hold up to 600 illegal immigrants, however there are unsubstantiated reports that up to 2000 people can been held in the camp at any given time. This detention facility was renowned for its remote location, extreme weather conditions and famous break out of 100 captives
Located North West of Australia, the Christmas Island Immigration Reception and Processing Centre consists of eight accommodation units. Commissioned by the Howard Government, this remote facility was designed to hold illegal immigrants. Due to the facilities remote location, the Howard Government’s first preference for detention was always the Christmas Island Immigration Reception and Processing Centre.
Although the above five facilities, including Pine Gap, are not currently being used to hold Australian and American civilians, should an outbreak of civil unrest, war or governmental dictatorship arise, these facilities WILL be used by the government to hold dissidents and political opponents.
