Underground city: Moscow police dig out over 200 undocumented migrants (VIDEO)

Moscow police raid illegal underground migrant 'city' (screenshot from AFP video)

Download video (12.86 MB)

Moscow police have detained over 200 undocumented foreigners who lived and worked in an underground city made to keep them off the radar of city and federal officials - with a cafe, movie theater, casino and chicken coop.

When police raided the 'city' hidden beneath a market in the capital, they discovered a vast garment complex with 122 sewing machines.

While the workers -181 Vietnamese and 88 Central Asians - were sewing brand-name clothes around the clock, people above ground had no clue what was happening just under their feet. From outside, the underground tailor shops looked like a normal transport garage.

There was also time for entertainment in the hidden city. Police found one room designed to be a Turkish café, with an oven and brazier. There was also a movie theater with 35 seats and a poker room.

The raid itself was carried out on May 31, but police only recently released video footage of the underground complex.

Raids on migrants are frequent in Russia’s capital, as Moscow is a destination for millions of people from the former Soviet Union and beyond seeking better work than is available at home.

According to some estimates, Moscow is home to 10 migrants working without a registration for every one working legally. The Federal Migration Service believes that as many as 3 million undocumented migrants may currently reside in Russia.

In 2012, federal authorities deported 16,000 foreigners from the city for working without permits to do so.

I see that the name of Warren Shufelt has been mentioned only once on the Message Board, buried in a thread about pyramids with a link only to a page on the defunct Wunderkabinet.

For anyone who might be wondering if there ever was a city of giant lizards living underneath Los Angeles, here is a treat from the LA Times, 1934 Smile

Oh yeah, that's often one of the things that keeps me awake wondering. Laughing

There's a short (2 hours+), excerpt from one of that reptile Icke's stage rants, attached.

But, this story really makes me think of the so-called, 'Shaver mystery', with Richard Sharpe Shaver's pre-Ickeian gish about hidden evil pre-humans, hidden underground and directing all of humanity's misfortunes, using advanced machinery. I wonder if they are all connected?

Thanks. Interesting article. Perhaps this 1930s dig unleashed the base demonics that inhabit the city to this day. LA has for decades been one of the worst cesspools of modern excess. Seems Jim Morrison was onto something (or possessed by something) sub-human pronouncing himself the 'Lizard King' of LA. I wonder if he knew of these catacombs.

Buffy tVS & Angel were obviously on to something.

Chance of clouds: Gigantic cave has its own weather
12 November 2013 by Lisa Grossman

A GIGANTIC cave that has never seen the light of day is a tough photography target under clear conditions. But this one posed an extra challenge: it's so large and isolated that it has its own weather – including clouds.

"Weather makes its way in, but it can't make its way out," says Robbie Shone, who took this photo of Cloud Ladder Hall, part of China's Er Wang Dong cave system. "It just hangs in there."

While there are several openings to the outside world near the cave's floor, there is only one near the top. That asymmetry traps enough humid air to fill the 6 million–cubic–metre chamber with clouds for most of the year. Cloud Ladder Hall is the second largest cavern in the world, beaten only by the Sarawak Chamber in Malaysia.

For this shot, Shone had three accomplices: one standing behind the frame with a large single-use flash bulb, one standing on the rock to the left shining a headlamp at the cave wall, and a third dangling from a rope hundreds of metres away. Although the shutter was open for only 30 seconds, the whole operation took four hours, with the team communicating via walkie-talkie because the echoes made shouting unworkable. "Before you know it you're in a maelstrom of noise," says Shone.

He sees caves as some of the last mysterious places on Earth. "More people have been to the moon than to some of these caves," he says. "Each time we go into these caves and bring photographs or video back to the surface, it's all new stuff we've never seen before."

Rumours persist of secret tunnels under the streets of Blackpool:

Did Blackpool's Strictly thieves really use a secret tunnel network to escape?

Quote:
The news that thieves broke into a dressing room at Blackpool Tower's ballroom while the stars of Strictly Come Dancing were performing has raised a tantalising theory about their escape route: that they might have accessed a "network of historic underground tunnels" leading from the famous tower to other parts of the town.

Is Blackpool sitting atop a secret warren? It is a persistent rumour. In 2011, the Blackpool Gazette ran an article collecting memories and myths from readers about Blackpool's alleged underground network. One said there was a tunnel which ran from Talbot Square to the tower: "We used to get in there via the basement of the Clifton Hotel kitchens as kids." Another told of linked cellars and a series of underground offices commandeered by communications teams during the second world war.
