"Borders Canada and is a site for a massive concentration camp capable of holding hundreds of thousands of people for slave labor. This is probably one of the locations that will be used to hold hard core patriots who will be held captive for the rest of their lives."
...keep in mind this is a huge military town. We've got a giant military base and a giant air force base.
In fact, If you look up locations for "fema camps," every single place says the same thing;
The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the detention facilities. Many also have an airport nearby. The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold approximately 2 million people.
Well there are train tracks and a river leading from the following fields/armory DIRECTLY to Fort Wainwright, the place listed everywhere as 'the biggest fema camp in america'...
Left side of the picture is the sports complex, right side is the military base
Those traintracks also go straight to Eilson AFB, where there is a large mental health facility...
At both bases there are more baseball fields within a minute's drive of the railway/the air fields.
Here's the sports complex/national guard armory. It's on the right, by the arrow/marker. Those few-dozen dark things in rows are caravans and hummers, and there are a lot more than that there now. What's their purpose?
Here it is in relation to the prison and "juvenile hall." Not even a 2 minute drive.
Here it is in relation to the prison, hospital (surrounded on one side by more fenced fields), the DMV (where there are usually more cops than most anywhere else in town), department of transportation, fenced/guarded lot where impounded cars are held, and other fenced fields
Here's a picture of an (Air National Guard?) helicopter taking off from the side of one of the fields next to the armory
not-so-good more recent picture-
Notice the plastic road barriers. They fill them up with water/sand and use them to divert/restrict traffic or for roadblocks. The place I recognize them from most is the checkpoints to get on base.
Notice what those trucks are being used for in this video
and this may be entirely unrelated, or it may not...
Operation Fairbanks: Fort Wainwright soldiers help make Afghan road safe for travel
Oct 09, 2011
FAIRBANKS — A company of Stryker soldiers recently helped re-open a dangerous road in Afghanistan in a mission named after Fairbanks, according to an Army news release.
Five months in the planning, Operation Fairbanks involved clearing roadside bombs and building checkpoints on a road to a district capital that recently was held by the Taliban.
BILOXI, Miss. -- Even in the mind-numbing heat that defines summers in Mississippi, boys and girls still eagerly take to the field to play America's pastime. A softball field at the Rudy Moran Sports Complex in D'Iberville, named in honor of a former county employee, will be open for business within a week and local high school softball teams can hardly wait.
The softball field was used as an emergency temporary housing site for nearly 40 families after Katrina. Two years later, the trailers are gone and teams are gearing up to play again...
...The parks and recreation director receives regular help from Jerry Harper, a FEMA contractor monitor...
..."We understand housing people is more important than sports. And all of our leagues have been great about working with each other knowing FEMA trailers were still out here,"...
Eight of the 12 closed parks that temporarily housed more than 600 families across the Gulf Coast have been remediated and returned to their local communities.
a document originating from Halliburton subsidiary KBR that provides details on a push to outfit FEMA and U.S. Army camps around the United States. Entitled “Project Overview and Anticipated Project Requirements,” the document describes services KBR is looking to farm out to subcontractors.

SERVICES/CAPABILITIES TO THE FOLLOWING:

Part Two addresses handling, securing, and accounting for EPWs and CIs. The MP performing EPW/CI operations must follow specific ROE and ROI applicable to this category of I/R operations. The EPWs and CIs are not treated as DCs or US military prisoners. Leaders and soldiers must be knowledgeable of the Geneva and Hague Conventions, applicable protocols, ARs, and US laws. During war or military operations other than war (MOOTW) involving US forces, the accountability and safe, humane treatment of captives are essential. The US policy demands that all persons who are captured, detained, or held by US forces during conflict be treated humanely. This policy applies from the moment captives are taken until they are released, repatriated, or transferred. Chapter 3 describes division collecting points (CPs) and corps holding areas (CHAs) that may be established throughout the battlefield. Chapter 4 addresses procedures for EPWs, and Chapter 5 describes procedures for CIs. Chapter 6 addresses unique planning requirements to be considered when operating an I/R facility.
Division Collecting Points and Corps Holding Areas
A large number of captives on the battlefield hampers maneuver units as they move to engage and destroy an enemy. To assist maneuver units in performing their mission—
3-24. Do not speak to captives except to give orders or directions. Do not let captives talk to or signal each other. This prevents them from plotting ways to counter security and plan escapes. An uncooperative captive can be gagged in certain tactical situations; however, only use a gag for as long as needed and ensure that it does not harm the captive.
CENTRAL COLLECTING POINTS
3-46. A central CP (Figure 3-3) is larger than a forward CP, but it has a similar setup and operation. The larger holding capacity of a central CP requires additional MP. If sufficient MP are unavailable, it is augmented by a division, corps, or EAC band to assist with perimeter security. Captives are provided food, water, first aid, and medical attention as required.
3-47. As stated in the division OPLAN or OPORD, a central CP is located near the division support area (DSA) in an area that prevents captives from observing activities within the DSA. It is also located near MSRs to make delivery, evacuation, and resupply easier.
CORPS HOLDING AREAS
3-55. A CHA (Figure 3-4) can hold more captives for longer periods of times than a central CP. Depending on the availability of MP units to establish I/R facilities, corps MP units must be prepared to hold captives at the CHA more than 72 hours. If the CHA keeps captives more than 72 hours, MP must plan and coordinate for the increased logistics and personnel required to operate a long-term facility. The decision to hold captives longer is based on METT-TC and the availability of forces. Captives remain in the CHA until they are evacuated to an I/R facility or until hostilities end.
3-56. A CHA receives captives from CPs and units that capture them in the rear area. Usually, one CHA is established to support each division conducting operations. However, additional CHAs may be required based on the—
Size of the corps area.
Type of terrain.
Length of the LOC between the CHA and the division central CPs.
Number of captives being moved.
3-57. A CHA is usually located near a base or a base cluster in the corps rear area. When selecting a site—
Coordinate with the unit responsible for the area (terrain) and the corps rear CP.
Conduct a recon to select a location.
Is it adjacent to an MSR, a railroad, or an airfield?
Are existing buildings available?
Is it close to supply facilities?
3-58. A CHA is more permanent than CPs. Existing structures may be used and are preferred. The capture rate and the captive categories determine the size of the CHA. A multistory building has a smaller perimeter to guard; however, it requires using guards on each floor and may present a security risk for the guards. Depending on the tactical situation, perimeter lighting can be used.
3-59. When constructing a CHA, divide it into two or more compounds for segregation, security, and ease of control. Consider providing more than one entrance into the CHA. Include a reception area for further processing, searching, and examining of selected captives by MI. Include sanitary facilities (showers and latrines) and shelter (tentage and existing buildings) from the elements and direct and indirect fire.
3-68. Consider the following when planning an MI screening site:
The site is located where screeners can observe captives as they are segregated and processed. It is shielded from the direct view of captives and is far enough away that captives cannot overhear screeners' conversations.
The site has an operation, administrative, and interrogation area. The interrogation area accommodates an interrogator, a captive, a guard, and an interpreter as well as furniture. Lights are available for night operations.
Procedures are implemented to verify that sick and wounded captives have been treated and released by authorized medical personnel.
Guards are available and procedures are implemented for escorting captives to the interrogation site.
Procedures are published to inform screeners who will be moved and when they will be moved.
Accountability procedures are implemented and required forms are available.
COLLECTING POINTS IN OTHER OPERATIONS
3-69. The CPs can also be operated during river crossing, amphibious, airborne, armored, and air assault operations:
River crossing operations. Establish temporary CPs on entry and exit sides of the river (corps MP often take control of CPs). Return from the exit bank and evacuate captives to the rear, preventing interference with tactical operations and protecting captives from hostile fire. Coordinate with traffic control personnel at the crossing site to prevent interference with assault forces who are moving forward. Use a secondary crossing site if available...

...Earlier this year, in announcing he wanted to focus greater attention on readiness, Parnell told key staff that he wanted Alaska to be prepared not only for natural disasters but also for unemployment and "civil unrest" in the Lower 48 "that could lead to an influx here."
He said Wednesday that unrest could include dissatisfaction in urban areas...

Ft. Dix / McGuire AFB - Possible deportation point for detainees. Lots of pictures taken of detention compounds and posted on Internet, this camp is well-known. Facility is now complete and ready for occupancy.
Police tactics and Pier 57
Concerns have been raised about police tactics in arresting nonviolent protesters with many apparently innocent people being swept up in mass arrests.
Guantanamo on the Hudson was a term coined during the Republican National Convention by a lawyer who, amongst 1000 other people, was detained in a facility by the New York City Police, in such conditions that he said that the city had created its "own little Guantanamo on the Hudson" (an allusion to the tortures reported in prisoners camps in Guantanamo).
The City police closed a street adjoining Union Square where protesters were marching, arresting protesters and bystanders alike. People were required to show identification cards or face arrest; the arrested people were not immediately informed of charges against them.
The facility was the then-recently closed Hudson Pier Depot at Pier 57 on the Hudson River in Manhattan, a three-story, block-long pier that has been converted into a temporary holding facility, though unfit for detention of prisoners. Arrested protesters have complained about extremely poor conditions describing it as overcrowded, dirty, and contaminated with oil and asbestos. People reported having suffered from smell, bad ventilation, and even chemical burns and rashes.
Numerous troubling cases were reported, notably:
- A 15-year-old diabetic girl on her way to a movie was arrested.
- A former vice president of Morgan Stanley was arrested while riding her bicycle.
- A 16-year-old protestor was lost to her mother for two days, even though her mother knew about and supported her daughter's participation.
- Small pens were used to contain "30 to 40 people" at once.
- Many people were detained longer than 24 hours on relatively trivial charges. One was a 23-year-old Montreal student arrested for disorderly conduct and released three days later. "He says he spent a total of 57 hours between the pier and Central Booking, during which time he says he was moved 14 times and repeatedly handcuffed and shackled to other protesters as young as 15."
The City reportedly refused to release the prisoners until a judge threatened to fine it for every extra hour every prisoner would spend in prison. The victims of the arrests have filed lawsuits against the City of New York.
One of the most prominent personalities arrested was Eric Corley "Emmanuel Goldstein", an important advocate of public rights and independent media, and editor of 2600: The Hacker Quarterly. The complete report of 2600 is available at www.2600.com...
Several cases have since gone to court, and it has come out that the charges of resisting arrest in those cases were completely fabricated. Video evidence was shown of defendants complying peaceably with police demands. Many of the cases have since been summarily dismissed. Some of them, as of 2011, however, remain open and are expected to proceed to trial.
The New York Times has reported on two occasions that the police videotaped and infiltrated protests, as well as acting as agents provocateurs during the protests.
In addition, the New York Times reported that prior to the protests, NYPD officers traveled as far away as Europe and spied on people there who planned to protest at the RNC.
