No (local council) business in abuse

  • No Business In Abuse: Australian Capital Territory
    Corporations are paid billions to do the government's dirty work in offshore detention camps – but they rely on other income streams as well, including contracts with local councils all around Australia. Our local councils need to refuse to contract with these corporations until they stop profiting from abuse. Australia’s system of mandatory detention, particularly in offshore detention camps, has consistently proven to be abusive and violate fundamental human rights. But the same corporations that make a profit providing essential services to these cruel camps also maintain business relationships with local councils across Australia. No respectable institution should associate with corporations complicit in such a system of abuse.   Broadspectrum and its security subcontractor, Wilson Security, are contracted to provide services central to the operation of Australia's offshore detention camps in Manus Island and Nauru. Together they have been paid billions for their work in the camps - the sites of gross and ongoing human rights violations, physical, psychological and sexual abuse. In a recent report, No Business in Abuse established Broadspectrum and its subcontractor’s complicity in abuses violating 47 international laws.  Broadspectrum’s own records indicate that since 2012 there has been a major or critical incident of self-harm reported on average every four days and a serious incident of sexual assault reported on average every four months, in the Nauru camp alone. These are the same corporations that hold lucrative contracts with local councils across Australia. Tens of thousands of Australians have pledged not to associate ourselves with corporations that profit from abusive practices towards people seeking asylum in Australia. We believe that every individual, every corporation and every institution has a responsibility to respect human rights. Our local councils are important institutions in our communities, and should take this responsibility seriously - to lead by example in encouraging responsible business practices and adherence to human rights.
