No Ferries 4 Serco action leaves Occupy Sydney Martin Pl @ 7pm for NSW Parliament & Circular Quay in peaceful protest :
  • Opposing Fire Sale privatisation of public assets to Serco Veolia or any other bidder.
  • Opposing creeping Serco contracting of State Services.

The Occupy Sydney #OccupySerco Team are planning 3 actions for March 9th in synchronocity with Occupy Perths call for international action against Transnational conglomerate Serco. UK based Serco is a specialist in under delivering on government service contracts and over delivering on  cost.

 You will be most familiar with Serco's activities in Australia from viewing the appalling Australian Immigration Detention Gulag -run by Serco.

But theres much more to Serco in Australia. They want to buy Sydney Ferries from an obliging government. They run 131500 Transport Info for Transport NSW and provide tech services to the RTA.
