Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. BDS upholds the simple principle that Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as the rest of humanity.
UN Women becomes the 5th UN agency in Jordan to drop its contracts with G4S following a campaign by BDS activists in Jordan. G4S is the world's largest security company and is complicit in Israeli violations of Palestinian human rights.
This agreement means that Jordan will finance with its citizens’ money Israel’s continuing colonial settler project that manifests itself daily in the appropriation of Palestinian lands, the destruction of Palestinian towns, homes and lives and Israel’s expansionist ambitions which affect all its neighbouring countries not the least of them Jordan.
