From the UK deportation system to prisons in Palestine and South Africa, G4S is profiting from some of the world’s most serious human rights abuses. But we’re fighting back!

Tireless campaigning means that G4S’ abuses in the asylum and migration ‘markets’ and in the privatisation of public services are being exposed. 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, and across the world.

In March 2016, after years of sustained pressure, G4S announced it will sell its entire Israeli business in the next two years, along with some of its youth detention centres in the UK and US.

But G4S has made similar announcements before and hasn't kept its word. In the meantime, it continues to profit off these injustices.

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 at the AGM to Stop G4S! Bring banners, flags, drums and your friends!
