The Refugee Invasion: What Is Its Basis? The Case For Apocalypse Soon! (July 5 2009).
This article appeared in the nationalist newspaper - Audacity! (Autumn 2009 edition). Reports in the week preceding publication here indicated over 10,000 so called refugees from Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries were in Indonesia planning 'arrival' on our shores. These people believe they have a 'right' to just arrive. If they get here - they will be allowed to stay. A new wave of refugee invasion has begun. Why?
It isn’t a wild tale. It is a fact. Three entire countries would like to up stakes and move to Australia. So far, the short list is Tuvalu, Kiribati and Maldives. The first two are small Pacific island nations, the latter an Indian Ocean Moslem state. The number of people involved : 425,000. These three countries are threatened by rising sea levels and other natural calamities.
It’s not just the people who want to come. The sovereignties want to transfer too! This is doubly ominous. This means that they want to set up shop as sovereign entities on our soil – with their seats in the UN intact. If they ‘buy’ land and do that – they are independent states. It is then, not just a question of new immigrants, but the partition of our country.
But all this is just beginning. There are conflicts over population and resources and the documented potential for natural calamities in Asia sending waves of people in search of sustenance, things which overshadow the first threat of ‘environmental refugees’. But these three issues, in this period of generalised crisis, can run together. It is a case of ‘apocalypse soon’’!
Australian Defence Agencies Recognise A Danger
It is not that Australian defence experts and politicians don’t know all this – and more. They do.One report, “Climate Change: The Environment Resources And Conflict” (2008), warned of conflict in the Asia-Pacific (and elsewhere) over resources in an era of population pressure and climate instabilities. Low lying areas could be flooded, precipitating refugees and other national tensions. Reasonably, these things impact upon the bastard called “the global economy” – and thus our economy - and may challenge Australian security. Another report to Kevin Rudd by Geoscience Australia (2008), warned of natural disasters – earthquakes, tsunamis - in the Asia-Pacific region which had great capacities to kill millions. Such disasters may also have dire economic and security impacts. A system of “early warning” was to be built. And then there is the state’s resident guru, Professor Ross Garnaut, who also said that there is an “expectation” by the international community and Pacific countries that Australia and New Zealand should provide assistance with the displacement by sea levels of Pacific Island communities. "There needs to be substantial resources allocated to assist with resettlement within the Pacific, but central to any solution will also be increased migration to Australia and New Zealand.
Nice of him. And what if we suggested assistance to the Solomons, or New Guinea for Pacific migrants? Why Australia? It is because Australia’s political elite can no longer say ‘no’, because it is neither in control of events or of our national sovereignty either.
It is the sheer scale of the general crisis unfolding which menaces the nation.
Environmental Or ‘Climate’ Refugees Are Massing: A Camp Of The Saints Scenario.
In 1972, Jean Raspail authored The Camp Of The Saints. This work predicted that the exploding populations of the Third World would produce millions of economic “refugees”. They would simply move to rich (“white”) nations by any means available. Raspail predicted armadas of ships. The process in miniature has operated against Australia for over thirty years. Now it may ‘explode’! So-called refugees from South Asia and South-East Asia are regular arrivals. As populations continue to rise, we can expect it. And there are other more immediate pressures.
Norman Myers of Oxford University has estimated climate change will increase the number of environmental refugees six-fold over the next fifty years - to 150 million. The UN University's Institute for Environment and Human Security predicts that by 2010, there will be 50 million “environmentally displaced people”, most of whom will be women and children. Australian climate scientist Dr. Graeme Pearman, has predicted that a 2°C rise in temperature would place 100 million people “directly at risk from coastal flooding” by 2100. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has also suggested 150 million environmental refugees would exist by 2050. Because the actual phenomena of climate change affecting human movement has not yet been empirically, systematically addressed, the European Commission funded a research project "Environmental Change and Forced Migration Scenarios (EACH-FOR)" to investigate, measure, and create scenarios for future environmental change. The project undertook 24 case studies worldwide with menacing conclusions. Population shift within the Third World threatens war, but to the ‘First World’ it implies our genocide!
The Demands Of The Three States Set The Precedent
Recently elected president of the Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed, made international headlines on November 10 2008 for his plan to invest revenue from tourism into a sovereignty fund to buy a new home for the nation's 300,000 inhabitants. The Maldives is clearly at risk of being washed away by rising sea levels. Nasheed argued in the Guardian: "We do not want to leave the Maldives, but we also do not want to be climate refugees living in tents for decades." And it is true enough; the Indian Ocean nation, made up of 1200 islands, is the lowest country in the world. Its highest point reaches only 2.4 metres above sea level.
"We can do nothing to stop climate change on our own and so we have to buy land elsewhere," President Nasheed said. "It's an insurance policy for the worst possible outcome. After all, the Israelis [began by buying] land in Palestine."
He said Sri Lanka and India were targets because they had similar cultures, cuisines and climates. Australia was being considered because of the amount of unoccupied land available. How nice of him too.
Meantime, over 100 representatives of non-government organisations from across the Asia-Pacific - including the main Pacific peak bodies and NGOs - have made an urgent call for Australian PM Kevin Rudd and NZ PM Helen Clark to “do more” to help the Pacific with “climate change” issues, and in particular with increased immigration and large-scale resettlement.
The groups, including, church, environment, aid, union and community organisations, had released an Open Letter for the 2008 Pacific Islands Leadership Forum in Niue.
The letter sets out a six point action plan including assistance for resettlement within the Pacific and an increase in permanent migration from the Pacific region to Australia and New Zealand. Australia announced a guest worker program with the Pacific at the Forum. Thousands are already displacing Australian workers in agricultural towns and on building sites everywhere.
Brad Crouch reported on news.com.au on October 4, that the Tuvaluan prime minister, Apisai Ielemia, visited Canberra in August to "secretly" float a plan for the mass migration of the country's citizens.
Tuvalu is a micro state, made up of eight low-lying atolls and coral islands with an estimated population of just under 12,000. It is the second-lowest nation in the world after the Maldives. Kiribati, an island nation of 33 atolls and 100,000 people, is also struggling to deal with the multifaceted effects of climate instability.
Villages have already had to relocate to higher ground, islands are shrinking, coconut palms are dying and saltbushes are taking over, replacing life-giving vegetation. The culturally diverse 7 million Pacific Islanders live in 22 nations. Most of the nations are low-lying atolls, with limited land space, small populations and little financial resources. More than 50% of Pacific Islander people live within 1.5 kilometres of the shore. They are all under threat of natural disaster and rising sea levels. If these three petty states get away with their demands, a precedent is set for the full invasion of Asia’s masses.
The Phillip Baxter Prophecy
Sir Phillip Baxter, former Vice Chancellor of the University of New South Wales and the father of Australia’s nuclear industry, understood by the late 1960’s what was coming. Baxter’s worries rested upon the pure rationale of overpopulation. He was worried too, by the inter-relationship of population pressures with nuclear war in the northern hemisphere, something now overwhelmed perhaps - by environmental matters, natural disaster and conventional conflict. Like Raspail he saw cataclysm for Australia.
Baxter was spurned by his establishment peers. Baxter said that it was lands like Australia and New Zealand that would beckon to the masses of people needing safety and resources. Baxter saw it all as inevitable, because the population explosion could not be curbed in time. Australia was their Life Boat. That was the hard message Baxter told patriotic groups in the early 1970’s and also in 1977 — to the founders of this paper!
The brutality of the idea of Life Boat Australia is clear enough. It won’t matter their colour, or their needs. We have. They want. We die.
We do not intend to ‘share’. We do not intend to die. Rather, we aim to survive our time.
