War on Want in RT: ‘Business as usual’: Activists condemn G4S at AGM over Israeli human rights abuses

Speaking ahead of the meeting, War on Want Senior Militarism and Security Campaigner Ryvka Barnard criticized G4S for failing to sever ties with Israel’s prison system.

“G4S has made similar promises in the past, under the pressure of public scrutiny, but has failed to take action on them,” she said.

“Whether it’s supporting Israeli oppression, stoking violence against asylum seekers in the UK or exploiting crises caused by wars, G4S has continued to rake in the profits with little regard for human rights.

“We’ve yet to see any evidence of these promises being kept as G4S continue to put their profits before the rights of Palestinians. Now is the time for G4S to walk the walk and uphold its legal and ethical responsibilities.”
