UOT - April 18 2013 - G4S

UOT - April 18 2013 - G4S

On this show we focused on G4S's complicity with Israeli Apartheid.

On April 17 it was Prisoners' day. The International Palestinian Solidarity Movement chose to focus this year particularly on G4S.

According to Whoprofits.org, G4S performs four types of activity in Israel:
- the company provides security equipment and services to incarceration facilities holding Palestinian prisoners
- the company provides equipment and maintenance services to Israeli military checkpoints in the West Bank
- the company offers security systems and security guards to businesses in Israeli West Bank settlements
- the company provides security systems for the Israeli police headquarters in the West Bank

the 'Stop G4S' campaign (http://www.bdsmovement.net/activecamps/g4s) are calling for the boycott of G4S until the company ends its complicity with Israel's violation of International laws and Palestinian human rights.
