Stop G4S Housing Asylum Seekers

152 Signatures Goal: 250

G4S (Group 4 Security) is the world’s largest private security army and the biggest private UK company with contracts worth £600m for security, managing detention centres, prisons and 675 court and police station cells. It is providing 10,000 guards for the Olympics costing us another £100 million. Now G4S and other security companies hope to get £135million of our money - to privatise the housing of people seeking asylum and put them in slum housing or “hostel accommodation”. G4S lost a previous contract with the Government for ‘escorting’ deported asylum seekers as a result of 773 complaints of abuse and the death of an asylum seeker. Three G4S employees are on bail facing criminal charges for this death. From May 1st asylum seekers in Nottingham (Midlands and the East of England Region) are being expected to face them and their sub-contractors as landlords. We believe that people seeking asylum deserve decent housing and respect like everyone else. We do not think that G4S can provide either. G4S should not be paid public money to house asylum seekers in Nottingham or anywhere else. Do you want your taxes to go to this giant profit-hungry security company? Please take a few minutes to sign the on line petition and support the opposition to GS4 in Nottingham and .

    No more government contracts to G4S. They have proved time and again they are not competent or compassionate, do not treat people who they are "looking after" with any care, dignity or humanity. For the 5th biggest economy as we keep being told we are we should stop aiming for the cheapest and worst options when it comes to government contracts.

    G4s taking advantage of vulnerable people like asylum seekers. Tey are making money from them but they don't even care about basic needs of asylum seekers. Asylum seekers are here because they lost their human rights in their own countries and unfortunately G4S is do not give a damn about their human rights.
