G4S' involvement in the detention of Palestinian children in Israeli jails dominated the company's Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday 6th June, overshadowing all other business, including last year's Olympic security fiasco, said Palestinian Solidarity Campaign (PSC) in a press release.
The AGM was also interrupted by protestors shouting 'Who killed Jimmy Mubenga?' in reference to the Angolan asylum seeker who died in England while being escorted onto a plane by G4S security guards in 2011. The protestors, who unfurled a banner saying 'Stop G4S', were escorted from the meeting.
Throughout the two hour AGM, Palestinian solidarity campaigners demanded to know when G4S would be ending its contracts with Israeli prisons, where Palestinian children, women and men are held, often without trial, and routinely tortured. more
