Stop G4S! Protest at G4S Annual General Meeting
12:30pm Thursday June 7
London Stock Exchange, Paternoster Square, London EC4M 7LS
G4S is a huge private security company involved in oppression and abuse of rights all over the world. The company lost its contract to deport people from the UK last September after 773 complaints of abuse were made against the company and following the death of Jimmy Mubenga, an Angolan asylum seeker who died after being ‘restrained’ by G4S guards.
G4S is contracted to provide equipment to the Israeli prisons in which Palestinian political prisoners, including child prisoners, are illegally held. More than 1,600 Palestinian political prisoners recently held a mass hunger strike and several remain on hunger strike.
The company already runs prisons, probation services and welfare services and has recently been awarded contracts to provide security to the Olympics, house asylum seekers in South Yorkshire and to take over parts of 10 police forces.
As the government continues to privatise all kinds of services, G4S looks set to receive even more public money and even more control over our communities.
Join activists from different movements opposing G4S for a demonstration in the heart of the City. Bring banners, drums and anything else you can make noise with!
