Tell British-Danish security firm G4S to stop supporting Israeli checkpoints, detention centers, military and security forces, and prisons, and the United Nations to end its complicity in Israel’s crimes against Palestinians, including over $22 million in annual contracts with G4S.

G4S, the world’s largest security company and second-biggest private employer, equips and maintains the Israeli detention centers and jails where Palestinian political prisoners, including children, are held and tortured, as well as the occupation forces and infrastructure that routinely massacre Palestinians while holding millions under military rule.

While professing commitment to both Palestinian rights and ethical contracting, UN agencies lavish G4S with lucrative business deals, after seven months of appeals by Palestinian human rights groups to end them, and despite the company’s participation in Israeli atrocities.

Join us to answer a united appeal by Palestinian prisoners for escalated boycotts of G4S, and to build a new global campaign against the UN’s support for this notorious prison and occupation profiteer.

Support the Palestinian people, the Palestinian prisoners, the Palestinian Resistance, and the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
