Representatives from tribes all over West Papua were meeting to choose a new leadership and to discuss the political future of the region. Police have confirmed the bodies of five Papuans have been found, two dumped behind an army barracks and three in the mountains.
Survival has been told by sources inside Papua that approximately 300 participants, including women and children, were arrested – many were savagely beaten as they were taken away. Most have since been released, but the leaders, newly elected at the meeting, remain in custody. Reverend Benny Giay has been a target of the US-backed Indonesian elite special forces, and has received numerous death threats for his role in exposing human rights violations in the region.
He told Survival, ‘We want the Indonesian government to stop using terror, we need our rights.
Survival’s Director, Stephen Corry said today, ‘This violence comes exactly a year after a shocking video of Papuan men being brutally tortured by Indonesian soldiers was released on the internet. We help tribal peoples defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures. Family SAFE has never had a shelter fail, even in the face of the record-setting 2013 Moore, Oklahoma tornado. These are just some of the pictures customers have shared with us of their Family SAFE above ground tornado shelters standing unmoved after a tornado. Perenco is chaired by Francois Perrodo, an Oxford University graduate now estimated to be one of the wealthiest men in France.
Survival has collected a great deal of evidence of the uncontacted tribes’ existence in the region where Perenco is working. What’s your biggest concern about surviving life after an EMP attack destroys our grid? First you have to determine the feasibility for your situation.  Let’s take a look at some of the important considerations to keep in mind while searching for property for your survival retreat.
There are many threats to our way of life and the best survival retreat will withstand all but the most cataclysmic of these events.
Terrorist attacks – This could take many different forms, including dirty bombs (see nuclear fallout). Economic collapse –this could last indefinitely, with periods of apparent economic prosperity followed by crashes. Widespread natural disasters – This can take many forms, from an asteroid with worldwide implications to local events that will impact your region. Is it feasible to go there on the weekends to maintain, stock up, build, and plant your permaculture garden? If you are able to move to your survival retreat, you will be able to invest much more attention into designing and building your survival home and garden. In the event of TEOTWAWKI, there will be legions of hungry people who want what you’ve got. Seclusion – if your property is off the beaten track and looks like dense woods with no house, fewer people will come knocking on your door. Look out location – having high ground for a look out spot will help you see intruders before they see you.
Underground living quarters – does the soil composition and terrain allow for installation of an underground bunker? Spring – Deep natural springs that flow year round are usually one of the cleanest sources of drinking water. Pond, lake or stream – These natural bodies of water will make a good back up source and will allow you to water livestock more easily.
Rainwater collection – set up rainwater collection barrels to provide another source of fresh water.
Your survival retreat should not only have storage areas for stocking up on non-perishables, but should also allow you to grow food for the future.
Permaculture plantings or food forests – fruit and nut trees, brambles and small fruits, firewood, and medicinal plants that are arranged in a natural setting will not look like a grocery store to looters. Garden space – hopefully you will have a sunny spot with good soil for growing some annual garden plants to provide fresh food for summer eating and winter storage. Food storage – a root cellar will allow you to store potatoes, beets, carrots, onions and the like for your winter meals.
Not every survival situation will allow for raising your own meat, eggs, milk, and fiber from livestock. Secure housing – can you build a camouflaged barn that is secure enough to prevent predation or rustling? Winter or drought shortages – will you be able to provide food for your livestock for the lean months? Seclusion – again, will passersby see your livestock out feeding and decide your dairy goat would make a great meal? For long term survival situations you will want to prepare some alternative forms of energy to pump water, heat your bug out cabin, cook food, etc.
Southern exposure – if you intend to install some solar panels on the roof of your survival cabin, you better check to see if there is good southern exposure. Running Water – a stream may provide the hydro power to run machinery such as a mill for sawing lumber or grinding grain.

Firewood – having plenty of firewood cut, seasoned, and stacked will make your life much easier right away.
Methane – Okay, this idea might stink (a little), but if you have livestock you might want to consider a methane digester to provide fuel for heating and cooking. It would be valuable to note that carbeurated vehicles would not be susceptible to the effects of an EMP, or more specifically, cars that do not require a computer to operate.
The secret “underground” building market for what are now being called doomsday shelters is on the rise in our country.
There are many different types of shelters that you can have built in an array of different price ranges that fit your survival needs. Luxury Survival Condo Complex – If your pocketbook can afford it this, it is the ultimate luxury residence for any prepper. Ready Made Family Structures – These types of shelters will run you approximately $50,000-$100,000. DIY Shelters – Many preppers on a budget of $50,000 or less choose the option of DIY when it comes to their survival. What started as a two-person remodeling company over 35 years ago has grown into a multi-state construction and home improvement enterprise boasting more than 75,000 happy customers.
Even though people living in areas exposed and often afflicted by hurricanes and tornado’s generally are aware of all the precautionary measures, people still do tend to lose lives in these disastrous situations. To start with the most basic of needs, the problem here doesna€™t necessarily lie only during the timeline of an actual storm, but for days of craze and distortion that ensue afterwards.
One gallon of water per person per day, to last three days at the very least, not only for drinking, but sanitation and other needs, as well.
This, of course goes without saying, seeing as how injuries are a frequent occurrence in situations such as that of a storm. Antibiotics a€“ whether ita€™s ointments, or pills, supplements that prevent bacterial infections are of vast importance here.
Prescription medications a€“ you need to have reserves of necessary pharmaceuticals that you or your family members might potentially require.
Towels a€“ these have a wide variety of utilization abilities, from preventing bleeding out, to drying off, in order to avoid hypothermia.
When it comes to infants, youa€™ll need a large number of diapers, to avoid risking infection, as well as an instant formula, for obvious reasons. It is smart to have pliers and a wrench, if nothing, than so as to be able to turn off utilities, such as pipes, or age-old electrical equipment. These cover most of your essential needs for a storm, as well as other types of a disaster. Survival has spoken to reliable sources from Papua who say at least another two have been killed; their bodies have not yet been found.
On Wednesday, armed soldiers and police surrounded the venue and, following a declaration of independence from Indonesia, the security forces stormed the stage, firing shots and using tear gas to disperse the crowd. Five have so far been charged with treason – a charge that has seen many Papuans sentenced for up to 20 years.
It’s clear that the international outrage generated by that event has taught the Indonesian government nothing about respecting the rights of the Papuan people. As you can see, even when the entire home is gone, the storm shelter remains firmly in place. The cost can be prohibitive for families trying to keep up with everyday expenses and the list of considerations might turn most people off. The farther it is to your BOL, the more radiation you will be exposed to on your bug out path.
Having a homestead in a secluded area with access to more than one source of water, and resources for raising livestock will be beneficial. There is always the potential in some areas for earthquakes, volcanoes, flooding, storms…the list goes on. Living there full time will allow you to make adjustments and improvements to your property and home as you see fit. Mountainous terrain, cliffs, steep hills, rocky outcrops, etc will discourage most intruders.
Stocking up on bottled water is great for short term survival, but a survival location needs a source of drinking water if you will be there for any length of time. It is also much more difficult to prep for livestock if you live in the city and only make it out to your survival retreat on the weekends. Research alternative food sources for the livestock you choose and plant forage sources to keep them fed and healthy. If the property you choose is in the shade of a mountain, all the solar panels in the world won’t do you any good. The turbine needs to be up above the tree tops to catch the breeze, and will be visible at a distance.
Having a warm house and hot meals without having to split firewood just might make it worth the odor.
Depending on the hardships you will face and the area you live in, it’s likely that you’ll just have to make do with what you can find.
I have my own well and a small seasonal irrigation canal near by to irrigate and too much snow to melt in the winter. This would entail a metal or concrete structure that is covered with soil and planted with vegetation.

Though they can be tricky to maintain and tune, owning and learning how to perform maintenance on a older, computer-less vehicle would be a great skill. Self-proclaimed Doomsday Preppers are spending thousands to millions of dollars on their innovative shelters.  They envision a scenario, in which it is no longer safe to participate in society at large.
We are going to start from the top luxury comforts of shelters down to the most economical that exist today. Located in Kansas, and called the Survival Condo, your living space would contain approximately 1,800 square feet of living space for 10 people for a full floor layout and 900 square feet  of living space for 5 people for a half floor layout. The most common types of shelter material are thick walls of poured concrete, old semis or large shipping containers. Delighting our customers, whether they are building new or remodeling their home with a new gutter system or roofing installation, is easy to do with the great products we offer and our staff of hardworking employees.
This is why wea€™ve come up with an article outlining all the necessary preparations for weathering a storm. Emergency services will probably be overwhelmed, perhaps even physically unable to reach you.
These include insulin, heart medicine, asthma inhalers (you wouldna€™t believe how easy these are to misplace, so you better have at least a couple of these stockpiled within your first aid cabinet). Pest control in the Tulsa area with the same level of customer service you've come to know from the FamilySAFE brand. However, if you are considering a survival retreat, here is a handy guide to help you find the best spot.
Here is a short list of what many people are prepping for and some preps to consider for these events. Again, a bicycle will help you get there faster, since electronics will be fried (including your auto).
Choosing a survival retreat in an area of low seismic and volcanic activity will increase your chances of survival. Or would you need to live in an urban or suburban home and bug out in the case of TEOTWAWKI?  For many people, it the best option is to Get Out Of Dodge in the event of a catastrophe. Let’s hope you don’t have to turn away starving children, but if hungry mobs are out roaming the countryside, you’ll need to be prepared to defend your resources from being stripped bare like fields after a locust swarm. Many old trucks from the sixties, seventies, and eighties would be great vehicles to have on hand, as they would increase your carrying capacity and rarely ever quit. They choose to live in an underground bunker, a converted missile silo or an above-ground fortress until the doomsday disaster passes. You luxuries would include, but are not limited to, full kitchens with stainless steel appliances, LED lighting throughout, Kohler fixtures, 50 inch LED TV’s, biometric key access (finger print reader), comes with a five-year food reserve for each person and is fully furnished and professionally decorated.
These types of shelters typically will hold at least a 2 year food supply for a family of five.
If you are serious about becoming a prepper you might want to rethink DIY shelters because you can end up sinking a lot more than you planned if you would have just went with the professionals to do it. Even minor injuries can cause sepsis and further complications, if not treated within a reasonable time period. Of course, a bit of extra consideration might go a long way in helping you weather the worst of weather conditions out there, so feel free to add a couple of your own ideas to the list. Also look for property that is located away from the coast and out of the reach of flood waters. However, for the flexible individual who can think outside the ‘burbs, moving to a remote area just might be a possibility. If you live on location it would be best to get started ASAP so you know how to care for your animals, how to feed them without sacks of grain from the mill, and how much food you can expect from them.
Your property could be destroyed by wildfires, crushed by landslides, or looted by vandals before you can reach it. You can combine these types of steel structures to hold larger amounts of people usually up to 20. There are also a lot of preppers that are having their shelters built in the ground before their house is done so they have their living space under their current residence. You may be surprised at what you can live without if you are really committed to preparing for an uncertain future. You can have these built custom made or bare bones and you can also have them completely stocked with supplies if you want to leave it up to the experts. This way you could have a tunnel going down to your shelter and quick access to safety would outweigh these other options unless you were currently living in them already. We would recommend contracting your local construction company as how to accomplish the shelter the fits your needs most. Having a general contractor on your job will not only save you money, but it could end up saving your life!
Learn as many survival techniques as possible, from identifying wild edibles and medicinal herbs, to defense and hunting skills.
Having a survival property could very well be a lifesaver in desperate times, but don’t let it lull you into a false sense of security.
