Last year, public pressure helped to stop the sell-off of the power industry in NSW. However, now the NSW government has recommenced privatising state services and infrastructure.

Recently, it gave the contract to manage Parklea prison to the GEO corporation, which formerly operated John Howard’s notorious refugee detention centres.

Now, the electricity industry and Sydney Ferries are facing privatisation.

This meeting will establish the benefits of public ownership and discuss what communities can do to oppose privatisation.

Organised by Power to the People Sydney
