Called by Addameer and PSC and many more: http://stopg4s.net/action-alerts
The last twelve months have seen G4S voted third ‘Worst Company of the Year’ in the global Public Eye awards, they also face a UKparliamentary inquiry into their disastrous handling of an asylum housing contract and will soon give evidence at the inquest into the death of Jimmy Mubenga who died while being restrained by G4S staff. Not that you would know it from the self-congratulatory tone of G4S’ latest Corporate Responsibility Report.
Across Europe, G4S are becoming a pariah company as trade unions, charities and faith groups take a public stand in opposing its drive to put private profit above human rights. Organisations in the Middle East have called for a boycott of G4S due to their complicity with Israel’s repression and detention of Palestinians including children.
On June 6th the company returns to the City of London for its annual corporate jamboree.
Stop G4S campaign are calling for a Europe-wide demonstration of outrage as they congratulate themselves on another year of profiteering at the expense of human dignity.
Bring banners, flags and drums; bring yourself and your friends. Refuse to be taken in by their whitewashing of abuses, join us at the AGM to hold G4S to account.
