Activists are staging a rooftop occupation at the headquarters of security multinational G4S near Crawley, West Sussex, in protest at what they claim are “illegal and criminal activities” in both the UK and Palestine/Israel.
Early this morning, two activists climbed on top of the multistory
building and secured themselves in place using superglue and bike locks.
Two banners were seen hanging from the edge of the building. One read “G4S – Profiting from: Israeli Apartheid, Prison Slavery, Deadly Deportations”.
Another dozen protesters are surrounding the building on the ground,
shouting slogan and holding anti-G4S placards.
G4S provides equipment to prisons inside Israel to which Palestinian
political prisoners from occupied territory are transferred in violation of the Geneva Conventions, tortured and subjected to arbitrary detention.
