A newly proposed bill, the National Emergency Centers Act (H.R. 645), if passed would ratify into law the operation of FEMA housing and work camps for American citizens to dwell in during "an emergency or major disaster”. The bill provides for the location of such camps to be on U.S. military bases where 24-hour surveillance would be introduced.
For years, FEMA (the Federal Emergency Managment Agency) has been constructing a large network of labor camps around the nation. In addition, some "prison affiliates" such as the T. Don Hutto Residential Center in Taylor, Texas, indefinitely detains foregin families held before extradition.
One of the bill's provisions mainly allows the use of present and former military bases for holding American citizens in cases of emergency.
Announced earlier this winter in December 2008, Northcom (Northern Command Center for Strategic Control) plans to quarter 20,000 U.S. troops in American cities. These soldiers are to be at use to quell "civil unrest" and participate in "crowd control". Many American military personnel were already spotted in American streets in Denver, Colorado and St. Paul, Minnesota, during the respective Democratic and Republican Conventions as well as at last week's Presidential Inauguration.
The bill is being proposed by Congressman Alcee Hastings of Florida.
Despite calls for necessary disaster plans and the need for more citizen security, the bill in question delegates sweeping power to FEMA and military bases at the expense of the citizen. This legislation is terrorizing the public and waving the flag of fascism high.
