Alert: Protest G4S complicity in torture of Palestinian children, 3rd May 4:30pm outside G4S HQ
23 April 2013
After 8 months of protesting outside their front door in London G4S is feeling the heat. Just last Sunday (21 April 2013) the Financial Times reporting that
"G4S to quit key contracts in Israel.. with sporadic international protests continuing both outside the FTSE 100’s headquarters in London and internationally, the company said it would exit the contracts covering Ofer, the checkpoints and the West Bank police headquarters when they terminate in 2015."
and further, quoting Kean Marden, an analyst at Jefferies US investment bank:
“G4S Israel may be next to be divested? The Israel/Palestine conflict has created reputational issues. In our view the potential disposal of G4S Israel could be announced as soon as the 25 June capital markets day.”
At this critical time its imperative that we double our efforts to pressure G4S to totally divest from Israel.
On Friday 3rd May we will again a protest outside their headquarters in London to raise the issue of G4S's complicity in the torture of Palestinian children.
The British-Danish security firm G4S is providing security systems to help Israel secure prisons and interrogation centres where Palestinian children are being caged and tortured. These include Ofer prison in the occupied territory where G4S provides the perimeter defense system and the central command control room for the entire facility, and the notorious Al Jalame interrogation centre in northern Israel with its Cell 36 where Defence for Children International reported children are locked in small filthy cells in solitary confinement, some for 65 days, with their only escape being the interrogation room where they are shackled by their hands and feet to a chair whilst being abused, sometimes for hours. G4S provides the security system that keep this torture den operational.
Please join us and protest outside G4S HQ - its the best way to celebrate the victory we have achieved so far.
