SYMAAG Stop G4S working group meeting

Tue 11 Dec 2012, 6.30pm, B1 Training Room, Exchange Brewery, 2 Bridge St. S3 8NS

Self-proclaimed worldwide security force G4S had been responsible for deaths in its "care", long before it showed its true carelessness by messing up the London Olympics contract. G4S have now breached their contract to re-house asylum seekers in Yorkshire and Humberside, so the UK Borders Agency have (again) extended another deadline. There has been extensive national media coverage of the evolving scandal, and there are now local, regional and national Stop G4S campaigns including these Sheffield meetings.See the summary of recent events here on the website of SYMAAG (South Yorkshire Migration and Asylum Action Group), and John Grayson on the Open Democracy website on G4S and on forced evictions and racist attacks, and an excellent report on asylum seeker-led resistance to G4S in The Independentwww.symaag.org.uk Twitter: @SYMAAG Tel: Sheff 2412780
