Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1260565637304426/
Organized by Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
British-Danish conglomerate G4S, the world’s largest security firm and second biggest private employer, plays a key part in Israeli settler-colonialism, ethnic cleansing, occupation and apartheid. From the barrier walls Israel uses to exclude Palestinian refugees driven from their homes, to the cells where it incarcerates and tortures thousands of Palestinian political prisoners, to the infrastructure of its brutal siege on the Gaza Strip, to its military and security forces who routinely attack Palestinians, often killing them with impunity – and periodically massacring thousands – G4S personnel and technology enable many of the worst Israeli crimes.
The company faces calls for boycotts by Palestinian civil society groups and the Palestinian prisoners’ movement. Major institutions including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the United Methodist Church have divested from their shares in the company, and dozens of business, charities, educational institutions, government agencies, labor unions, religious organizations and political parties have refused it contracts.
Join us during Israeli Apartheid Week to demand that G4S end its complicity in Israel’s attacks on Palestinians!
