We, the undersigned, call on RMIT University to cancel it's new contract with Wilson Security as part of a divestment from the refugee detention industry.Wilson Security have played a central role in the Australian government’s abusive, human-rights-violating detention of refugees on Manus Island and Nauru as well as in onshore detention centres.

There have been countless reports and inquiries regarding the deaths, torture and sexual abuse faced by refugees who have been incarcerated within Australia’s mandatory detention centres. Australia has been a world leader in refugee detention torture for almost 30 years and this has been made possible by companies such as Wilson being allowed to operate with impunity, bring in enormous profits and escape accountability.

Wilson Security have actively chosen to participate in and enforce our communities torture and abuse in detention and should be held accountable and not allowed to continue to profit by organisations like RMIT University who have made so called commitments to anti-discrimination.

We ask RMIT University to join the National Gallery of Victoria, the Sydney Biennale, HESTA, and The University of Newcastle in cancelling their contracts with Wilson Security and refusing to be complicit in ongoing racist abuse of refugees.
