Palestinian prisoner rights organisation Addameer is concerned for the lives of four Palestinian political prisoners on hunger strike. They are protesting against Israel’s use of detention without trial.
As Palestinian BDS National Committee says ” Israel’s use of detention is made possible by the support of G4S, a private security company that provides equipment and services to prisons at which Israel detains Palestinian political prisoners without charge and subjects them to torture and ill-treatment.”
G4S is a strong contender for the infamous ‘Worst Corporation of the Year’ Public Eye People’s Award. Vote for G4S today!
