Stop G4S! Protest at G4S Annual General Meeting 2015

 

Thursday 4 June at Excel Centre, 9:30 AM

Royal Victoria Dock, 1 Western Gateway, London E16 1XL

Closest public transport: Custom House DLR 

Join us in protest at the G4S shareholders meeting.

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!

Stop G4S image

Last year we successfully forced the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to divest from G4S. 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.

For the last three years, groups from different movements have come together at the G4S AGM to resist its growing power and human rights abuses.

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!

Can't make the protest? You can still take action and support us on the day!
