Abstract:

The transformation of Pine Gap <br /><br /> Australia has two hearts, two potent symbolic centres.

The other, Pine Gap, redolent with the symbolism of imperial power and threat, is the poisoned heart of the land, pumping toxins into the political landscape, binding us to a closed and increasingly threatening future, nationally and globally.
