And event page for the public meeting:
G4S provides caretaking services, including security services, to five Leicestershire schools: Rushey Mead school, Fullhurst College, Beaumont Leys School, Judge Meadows College, Soar Valley School.
Aside from it's shocking incompetency during the Olympic games, G4S are known for their complicity in the undermining of the Fourth Geneva Convention and human rights in Israel and Palestine, and for their poor record around the deaths of several people and the injury of hundreds others in their activies for the UK Border Agency.
Amnesty International Leicester, Palestine Solidarity Campaign Leicester, Friends of Al-Asqa and Leicester Civil Rights Movement say that G4S is an unfit company to provide services to our schools.
Come along to the meeting to hear more and share your views.
