Hi All

4ZzZ just got this fax from the Australian Defence Force. It seems they are
not going to fuck around this time. Not like at s11.


CHOGM 2001

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) in conjunction with the Queensland Police
Service (QPS) is making intensive preparations for the forthcoming
Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting (CHOGM 2001) in Brisbane in
This will involve a substantial resource commitment in supporting security
arrangements to ensure a safe and secure environment for CHOGM 2001.
About 1,600 defence personnel, including a large number of reservists, will
be involved.
The support arrangements will include ADF helicopter support, counter
terrorist support similar to the Olympics, provision of specialist night
observation and personal protective equipment, as well as specialist
assistance with bomb search and disposal. 
The Australian Government is responsible for the arrangements for CHOGM 2001
in conjunction with the Commonwealth Secretariat. The QPS and the ADF will
co-operate in providing secured support during the CHOGM.
The ADF, including the Federation Guard, will also play a ceremonial role in
Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide in support of CHOGM and the Royal visit.
