A shadowy, global corporation with a horrifying track record of human rights abuses and discrimination is about to be given a lucrative contract to run… a government discrimination helpline!
But working with a top legal team, we have a rare chance to stop them in their tracks.
G4S runs privatized detention centers and prisons around the world, and has a long list of human rights abuses, unlawful killings, and other abuses to their name.
This is the corporation the UK government now wants to run a public helpline for people facing discrimination because of their race, gender, and sexual orientation! It’s just one contract, in one country -- but G4S thinks it’s invisible. If we can stop this one contract, we can start to challenge this corporation across Europe, across the Americas, in Australia and New Zealand, and everywhere else it crops up to privatize our public services and commit its abuses.
And we can stop G4S. A top legal team tell us we can challenge the contract in court - in fact we’ve already taken the first steps to initiate a claim. But to take it forward, we need to raise enough money by the deadline this week.
Can you chip in to help us stop G4S and its abuses?
