Hello media, what are Serco doing to asylum seekers in Australia?

The Australian media is filled with coverage of the refugee protest at Sydney’s Villawood detention centre and yet virtually no journalists seem to be reporting about the role of Serco, the company running the place.

It’s always simply assumed that privatisation of detention centres is a jolly good idea for all concerned. For a lack of accountability, it’s wonderful.
