Protest the New York office of British/Danish security company G4S, which supports both occupation forces’ raids on al-Aqsa mosque in occupied Jerusalem and the jailing of its Palestinian defenders in Israeli prisons and detention centers.
G4S, the world’s largest security firm and second-biggest private employer, recently won contracts to help build, equip and operate a new “Police Academy” for occupation forces just outside Jerusalem.
Since the beginning of October, such forces have not only killed dozens of Palestinians with impunity and injured thousands more, but have also participated in repeated, armed invasions of al-Asqa mosque.
These violent incursions, along with occupation forces’ brutal suppression of Palestinian protests against them, have resulted in the detentions of countless Palestinians for defending the holy site, among over 1,000 captured in the last month alone.
Palestinian political prisoners are held, and often tortured, in Israeli prisons and detention centers similarly equipped by G4S.
Most recently, occupation forces have expanded their use of “administrative detention” to imprison Palestinians without charge or trial to target children, a move human rights groups called unprecedented.
Support recent calls by the Palestinian prisoners’ movement and the BDS National Committee for escalated actions against G4S over its support for Israeli repression.
Demand an immediate end to the company’s contracts with Israel’s military, prison and occupation agencies, as well as Israel’s attacks on Palestinian holy sites and brutal repression of the Palestinian people’s heroic uprising; the freedom of all Palestinian prisoners; and the liberation of Palestine.
