Responding to news that the Labour Party National Executive Committee voted not to renew its contract with G4S, Ryvka Barnard, Senior Militarism and Security Campaigner at War on Want, said:

"War on Want welcomes the news that the Labour Party has voted not to renew its contract with G4S, a company that is complicit in Israeli violations of human rights. 

"Israel’s military occupation of Palestine is only made possible through international support from governments and from the many international corporations that profit from the occupation.

"We call on all other political parties and institutions to follow suit."
