And they said it would never happen! Underneath is a link to the most incredible “anti-terrorism” legislation ever inflicted upon the Western World. The legislation was passed in a midnight stealth-session of the government in Australia (I think what little opposition that existed, were actually asleep at the time). Australia hangs its head in shame, becoming the most totalitarian “democratic” nation on Earth (potentially, the legislation can imprison a person, including children, for up to 30 years without charge). Watch out all those who believe they live in a “democracy”. This legislation will be the baby from which all freedoms are lost, and your nation could be next on the ultra-paranoia “hit-list”.

What follows is a “green light” to legitimately intercept ALL communications by private Australian citizens. This has always been tolerated (with ECHELON), but never acknowledged, like it is here.

PINE GAP, EXMOUTH etc.), can access the “notes” regarding the creation of these - the most classified of all US military facilities.
