Recently, BDS Vancouver-Coast Salish joined the global campaign to boycott and divest from G4$, the world's largest security company that has contracts in Israeli prisons and detention centres, including those that incarcerate children and administrative detainees. We are working to intensify this campaign in Canada, and we are asking groups to endorse our call-out statement, which was printed last month in rabble.ca
As the conclusion to the statement noted:
"Within Canada G4$ is profiting from the most socially and environmentally destructive projects – tar sands, pipelines and mass incarceration of migrants. We therefore call for a complete boycott of G4$ and for all institutions – unions, student and faculty associations, religious, faith based organizations, pension funds and government bodies – to divest from G4$!"
Please join us and help broaden this important campaign; group endorsements should be sent firstname.lastname@example.org and will be posted on our website.In Solidarity
Please help us grow, any contribution big or small goes along way and is greatly appreciated!
