Standing up against Security Threats

Recently, an asylum seeker doused Springvale Commonwealth Bank last November with petrol and set it alight. The attack destroyed the $2.5 million building and injured 33 people, including children. Security threats put authorites on edge That’s why authorities reacted with caution when an unidentified item was discovered on Glenferrie Road in Malvern. The road was closed off with the potential threat of a bomb scare, and a robot was deployed to investigate a package left at the side of the road. Traffic and public transport were re-routed until the area was cleared and deemed safe ag  ...read more

Military level protection

Historic buildings and sites in Australia are an important part of our heritage, and many of them continue to be used for modern purposes. Camp Road Military Base commonly known as the Broadmeadows Maygar Barracks is a good example of how a century old military base still has significance today. The base was used for the first time in 1914 at the onset of the Great War after having been purchased by the Department of Defence. Since then, it has served as a hunting club and even a hostel in the sixties. Despite its age, the Broadmeadows barracks is still an important milita  ...read more

Charlottesville shows the need for Safe Zones

The incident in Charlottesville, Virginia where a man rammed a car through a protest killing one person and injuring 32 others makes us think about the need for creating safety zones for the people. Vehicle-ramming attacks have become increasingly common due to rise of terrorism and political unrest; similar attacks took place in Westminster in March 2017, Nice, Ohio University and Berlin. Not just a public protest but any area which has a large number of people gathered together is vulnerable to attack, specially from vehicles ramming into pedestrians.   ...read more
