Welcome to the Global Extinction Awareness System. You are watching super threat number 05. Generation Exile.
In 2019, our neighbours are climate refugees and economic collapse victims who are swarming the planet, looking for a habitable place to live.
Hardest hit: storm zones, drought zones, war zones
GEAS volunteers report from the front lines of the generation exile superthreat.
GEAS volunteer kaitown updates on the underground hit “Journey into the wasteland”, a documentary that has slashed previous peer-to-peer sharing records for full-length films. “Journey into the wasteland” puts a personal face on the familiar statistics of 250 million climate change migrants worldwide. It follows five families seeking refuge in unfamiliar countries, from Canada to Denmark to Argentina.
Kaitown reports, “This movie goes beyond the shocking images of slums and ethnic violence we are all so used to seeing on the news. It shows us the real human cost of having an entire generation grow up as citizens of nowhere, without stable access to education, health, civic rights, or a national identity.”

GEAS volunteer bhagat19 has breaking news. Ten Chinese youth on tourist visas were arrested for attacking a Tajik settlement in India near the Chinese border. The youth are part of a renegade Chinese movement made up of so-called ‘Leftover Children’ who have had to fend for themselves in rural villages while their parents sought jobs in China’s cities.
Bhagat19 says, “These kids have turned into fierce nationalists. They want to purge Western China of so-called foreign tribalists and now they’re bringing their fight to neighbouring countries.

GEAS volunteer SteveXr reports from Memphis, Tennessee where dozens of local hotels and motels have reportedly installed anti-senior signs (video reads “No one over 65”). Memphis is on the primary migration route for thousands of aging gulf coasters who are trying to escape both Respiratory Distress Syndrome and outbreaks of the hottest (?) season of storms. The anti-senior movement argues that local resources are being overwhelmed by these temporary residents.
SteveX writes, “All of these seniors, they just want to return to their homes in paradise after things settle down. But they’ve become pariahs here. So where exactly are they supposed to be re-settled?”

GEAS volunteer annastar updates from Sydney. The Australian government has just confirmed that its migrant watch system was breached by domestic hackers. The surveillance system was developed as a “humane alternative” to the detention of migrants pouring in from Malaysia and Indonesia but the breach of the MWS now puts those migrants at elevated risk for identity theft and discrimination. [sign reads: “Malaysian GO HOME”]
Annastar says, “Those of us in the system have good reason to be afraid. What if the hackers sell our information to anti-migration protestors? It would be the perfect platform for organizing violent attacks against us. Just like what happened in British Columbia.”
