Refugees, racism and capitalism in Australia

That which surrounds me

This pamphlet is dedicated to the hundreds of people locked up in Australia’s privately-run detention centers.

It responds to the arguments of the Federal Government and their allies on the refugee question and is packed full of facts, figures and explanation.

It also puts the debate in a historic context, explaining the role of racism in the rise of Australian capitalism.

It argues that the refugee policy of the Government is not the result of Ruddocks’ vindictiveness alone but rather is reflective of deeper historical processes.

It is written for workers and young people who want to hear a side of the debate on refugees they won’t get in the mass media.

Most importantly it offers a perspective and programme for the pro-refugee movement.

Written in the wake of the Woomera protest over Easter 2002
