Oppressed Peoples Online Word...The Voice Of The Voiceless

Dedicated to disseminating news & information not found in mainstream media....

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:

  • Over 5 million Palestinian refugees are still fighting for the realisation of their right of return to their homes, a right which the State of Israel continues to deny to them.
  • 1.6 million Palestinians live as second-class citizens in the State of Israel. Over 50 Israeli laws have been enacted since 1948 that directly or indirectly discriminate against the indigenous Palestinians who were able to remain after the Nakba.
  • Nearly 2 million Palestinians live under an Israeli military siege in the Gaza Strip, without freedom of movement or reliable access to clean water, food, medicine, electricity and other basic needs. Everyone in Gaza is vulnerable to Israeli military attacks such as the bombardment in the summer of 2014 when over 2,000 Palestinians were killed, hundreds of whom were children.  
  • More than 1.7 million Palestinians live under Israeli military occupation in the West Bank, closed in by Israel’s illegal Apartheid Wall and settlements which are proliferating at a frightening pace.
  • Nearly 6,000 Palestinians are held as political prisoners in Israeli prisons and detention centres, where torture is widespread. Many are held in administrative detention, without charge or trial.

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!

  • Come to our protest outside the G4S AGM on 4 June. Details on time and location are on facebook!
  • Tweet about the campaign using the hashtag #StopG4S, and direct your questions and demands to @G4S_UK.
  • Sign up with War on Want to receive updates on the G4S campaign and other BDS work we are involved in.

Best wishes,

The story of man's creation in the Qur'an is quite different from Darwinism. The Darwinian theory reduces man to one of the species of animals. The Qur'an says that man started his life as a man.…Continue
