Coordinated Twitter Alert! Vote G4S Israeli-Prison contractor Worst Company

A message from the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) National Committee...
START TWEETING: Tonight 9:30 am Pacific Time / 12:30 pm Eastern time/ 7:30 pm Palestine

G4S has been nominated for the infamous ‘Worst Company of the Year’ Public Eye People’s Award.

G4S is involved in running Israel’s prisons, checkpoints, police force and Apartheid Wall. Help us trend worldwide #VoteG4S (important NOT to use this hashtag in advance otherwise our trending chances greatly diminish. Follow @WaronWant for the word go!).

The most important part of this action is to push people to click and vote for G4S at this link:

The winner of the vote will be announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos – this is an important chance to expose G4S and their contracts with apartheid Israel (among many other human rights abuses internationally).

Voting does not close until midday on January 23rd. We will have a repeat of this action later on during the week, please keep tweeting the link even outside the action so we can gather as many votes to give the title to G4S.

Reason: G4S, the largest private military and security company in the world, has a contract with the Israeli Prison service and provides equipment and services to prisons at which Israel detains Palestinian political prisoners without charge and subjects them to torture and ill-treatment. Many Palestinian political prisoners remain on hunger strike to protest detention without trial including Samer Al-Issawi, entering critical stages of his hunger strike.
