Concentration Camp Set Up For DNC Protesters

Concentration Camp Set Up For DNC Protesters
Cells topped with barbed wire to be used to hold protesters rounded up in mass arrests

A CBS news crew has uncovered a huge warehouse holding facility in Denver, consisting of steel cages topped with barbed wire, ready to receive thousands of protesters at this year’s Democratic National Convention.

“This is a building filled with metal holding cells,” described CBS reporter Rick Sallinger. “We showed up at the facility unannounced today, the doors were wide open, and we managed to shoot for several minutes until a Denver sheriff’s captain asked us to leave.”

The warehouse is located on the north-east side of Denver and is owned by the city. It appears that officials wanted to keep it a secret until the convention began. The police captain captured on film warned that if made public, the facility could be compromised “by people who are potentially trying to be disruptive.”

The CBS footage shows a huge area of metal chain-link cells that measure 5 yards by 5 yards, topped with rolls of barbed wire. Each pen is adorned with an identifying letter.

Signs on the walls of the warehouse read “Warning! Electric stun devices used in this facility.”

On seeing the footage one local political organizer told the crew it resembled a “concentration camp”, while another described it as a “meat processing plant”. The facility has already been dubbed “Gitmo On The Platte”.

Such “prison camps” were also used in 2004 during the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. The areas close to the DNC in Boston consisted of concrete walls, barriers and metal cages with barbed wire.

The areas were invisible to the Fleet Center where the convention was held and were referred to as “Boston’s Camp X-Ray”.

At the 2004 RNC in New York holding pens were also employed as protestors and innocent people were swept up in mass arrests and transferred to then-recently closed Hudson Pier Depot at Pier 57 on the Hudson River in Manhattan.



The facility was quickly dubbed “Little Gitmo” as thousands were bound and paraded into a large warehouse area behind steel caging.

This was taken from inside a portable bathroom at Pier 57. You can see people being lined up to get inside the huge pen. Throughout this 30 second clip, a chant of “Let Us Go!” starts in one part of the complex and quickly spreads to every corner. Learn more about the photographer’s experience here:

More recntly, such holding areas have been employed in conjunction with the Orwellian concept of “free speech zones”.

The Secret Service has been granted the power to declare “first amendment areas”. They scout locations where the president is scheduled to speak, or pass through, target those who carry anti-Bush signs and escort them to the protest pens prior to and during the event.

Inevitably the pens are far away from the event location and well away from any media spotlight.

Holding pens will also be employed at the RNC later this year with local law enforcement working with the secret service to designate the areas in Minneapolis.
