Today we commemorate the Nakba (Arabic for ‘catastrophe’), when over 700,000 Palestinians were driven from their
homes in the process that led to the declaration of the State of Israel. Now, 67 years later, the Nakba is ongoing:
Despite these seemingly insurmountable challenges, Palestinians continue to struggle for justice, asking grassroots movements around the world to take action using boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) on Israel until it complies with international law.
War on Want continues our campaign targeting G4S for its complicity in the abhorrent system of Israeli arrest and detention. G4S, a British multinational company, has since 2007 provided security systems and other services for Israeli prisons and detention centres holding Palestinian political prisoners.
Last year at their Annual General Meeting, G4S executives were forced to respond to protestors demanding answers, and were pressed to come clean on whether they will renew their contracts with Israeli apartheid. G4S's comments show that the company is feeling the heat from our campaigns, so now is the time to turn it up!
On 4 June G4S will be holding its Annual General Meeting at the ExCel London Centre. Stand with us at this year’s AGM to #StopG4S!
