Did you know that G4S which is currently in the news for its failure to fulfil its commitment to provide enough security personnel for London Olympics is also a supporter of human rights violators. G4S provides security equipment and personnel to illegal israeli settlements, prisons and checkpoints. The everyday gross violations and torture of ordinary Palestinians at the hands of israeli military and its contractors is a well documented fact. It does make one think why a firm such as G4S was awarded security for London Olympics in the first place, given its complicity with israel in flouting international law and human rights in occupied Palestine.
“How can you put the security of the Olympic Games in the hands of a company that contracts with an occupation state and violates human rights?”
