Refugees For Profit?

Australia's detention centres, such as Villawood and Christmas Island, are run by Serco, a British multinational corporation. The Guardian has called Serco "the biggest company you've never head of". Along with transport, health, technology and military contracts and corporations, Serco runs private prisons in the UK, Germany and Australia. The Sydney Morning Herald reported last week that Serco has been fined by the Immigration Department every month of 2010-11 for failing to meet contract goals.

The People United? Australian solidarity with Latin America since Allende

During the 1970s, national and international solidarity organisations arose in opposition to U.S. imperialism in Latin America. Washington’s support for repressive regimes across the region produced world wide diasporas of Salvadoreans, Argentines, Guatemalans, Chileans, Uruguayans and Colombians, inter alia. In Australia’s case, these included significant numbers of political and economic refugees.
