The mini city has no cigarettes, no books, no magazines, no board games, no TVs, and no newspapers or radios.


People have gotten so dependent on modern technology like Smart phones that they no longer own old technology like battery powered transistor radios. That smart phone is worthless when there is no power and unlike AA batteries, replacement cell phone batteries aren't easy to find.

He said FEMA stopped them from taking photos of "Camp Freedom" and turned off the WiFi and said they couldn't charge their smart phones because there wasn't enough power. "Every time we plugged in an iPhone or something, the cops would come and unplug them," he said.

The man described the "micro-city" (as FEMA calls it) as a prison. The Red Cross promised facilities with washing machines and hot showers, but sent victims to live in unheated tents.

FEMA's response is predictable. After all, it was designed for martial law and rounding up and interning people in concentration camps. FEMA's disaster response role in basically a sham and a public relations front.
