Chaos and riots at Sydney Detention Centre

Authorities have regained control of Sydney’s Villawood Detention Centre that was thrown into chaos last night.

Fire crews are still battling the pockets of fires from the riots that started late last night.

It is believed the riots began yesterday morning when two asylum seekers took to the roof of one building, reportedly in protest to the department denying their applications.

This morning we were joined by Pamela Curr, Asylum Seeker Resource Centre Campaign Coordinator, to tell us about the asylum seeker perspective of what happened last night.
