Concentrate on those Camps.

Connect the dots! Let's find the internment camps in America!

Beware of those concentration camps in America.
"There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general's signature on a warrant to which a list of names is attached. Ask yourself if you really want to be on Ashcroft's list. "
"KBR, the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton Co. said Tuesday it has been awarded a contingency contract from the Department of Homeland Security to supports its Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities in the event of an emergency. The maximum total value of the contract is $385 million and consists of a 1-year base period with four 1-year options. KBR held the previous ICE contract from 2000 through 2005."
What does the ICE have to do with it? Slowly we are seeing that this whole 'immigration' debate has national and political agendas.
Citizen Terrorists
"Not that George W. Bush needs much encouragement, but Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales a new target for the administration's domestic operations - Fifth Columnists, supposedly disloyal Americans who sympathize and collaborate with the enemy. "
"But recent developments suggest that the Bush administration may already be contemplating what to do with Americans who are deemed insufficiently loyal or who disseminate information that may be considered helpful to the enemy. "
These "detention centers could be used to detain American citizens if the Bush administration were to declare martial law"
"In the view of some civil libertarians, a form of martial law already exists in the United States and has been in place since shortly after the 9/11 attacks when Bush issued Military Order No. 1 which empowered him to detain any non-citizen as an international terrorist or enemy combatant. "
Kickin' your ass with Martial Law
"The plan is called REX 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984. Through Rex-84 an undisclosed number of concentration camps were set in operation throughout the United States, for internment of dissidents and others potentially harmful to the state. "
Now what?
I, like you, am a concerned world citizen. Running by this news is disheartening and constricts my dreams for a peaceful environment where sound minds and sound hearts would unify and further follow a common vision fit for cultivating a dynamic, people-friendly world. However, this news is not old news--in fact, deception and rampant social control are an integral fraction of the political-social realm. Since the United States' induction as the core hegemonic state, the polyarchy sought to preserve and perpetuate coercive political power. Now, we are witnesses to this brutal, global regime. If we want to start from somewhere, we have to begin here. We have to begin now; we have a responsibility--to preserve individual liberties and in a whole, emancipate humanity.
