Join us for a protest at the G4S shareholders meeting.
While it continues to make billions from human rights abuses and privatisation, it’s not all good news for G4S, the world’s largest private military and security company.
Universities, charities, and trade unions across the world have cancelled contracts worth millions of pounds with the company over its role in human rights abuses in Palestine, where it helps to run Israel’s abhorrent prison system.
Three G4S guards are to be charged with manslaughter over their role in the death of Jimmy Mubenga, an Angolan man who died while being ‘restrained’ during a deportation run by G4S.
Following tireless campaigning, a parliamentary watchdog published a scathing report exposing how G4S has provided filthy and unfit housing for people awaiting outcomes of asylum claims or appeals and ensured the company will be fined.
Deeply concerned that G4S is taking over prisons, policing and education, unions and activists are organising to condemn and resist the role G4S is playing in the wholesale privatisation of the UK’s public services.
Now G4S hopes to get the upper hand back by presenting a whitewashed picture of itself at its annual general meeting. We need your suport to pressure G4S to end its complicity in human rights violations across the world. Join us on Thursday 5 June!
