Deathscapes

The Villawood Immigration Detention Centre has been imposed on the land of the Bidjigal peoples of the Dharug Nation. In order to tell the stories of the people who have died while held in custody at the Villawood Immigration Prison, we must first articulate the violent history of the site itself. The serial suicides of Josefa Rauluni, Ahmed Al-Akabi and David Saunders were prefigured by these founding forces of colonial settler violence.
