7 private and public companies in Jordan have discontinued their service contracts with G4S, the security company, in response to a global boycott call against G4S’ parent company for its complicity in Israel’s regime of occupation and settler-colonialism.
The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) in Jordan has dropped its contracts with the world’s largest security firm, occupation profiteer G4S, following an ongoing BDS campaign over the firm’s role in Israel’s violations of human rights.
The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) in Jordan has announced it will no longer contract with G4S.
The group Jordan BDS hailed the decision as a victory for its year-long campaign, which included a meeting with WFP officials and an open letter signed by dozens of Jordanian organizations to urge the UN agency to end the contract.
This makes WFP the fourth out of six UN agencies in Jordan to ditch the world’s largest security company, following pressure from the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.
