I'll only be properly happy when the wrong Usain Bolt is found to be at the starting blocks for the 100m final. "Hey....that's not a Jamaican accent!"

Shit - they've taken the original theme song down. It's got to be 10000x worse than that cover version

Wonderful to see them scrabbling to recover any of their miserable rep left - there was a great spoof page on facebook on friday: "S4G-Sort-of-Securing-London-20.12" that vanished by saturday - their actual recruitment page is desperate enough to be beyond satire anyhoo

CPS decides not to prosecute G4S Security Guards involved in the death of Jimmy Mubenga

Makenda Adrienne Kambana, Jimmy Mubenga's wife said: "We are distraught my husband has been taken away from me and my children have lost their father. He was crying for help before he was killed. We can't understand why the officers and G4S are not answerable to the law as we or any other member of the public would be."

Deborah Coles, co-director of INQUEST said: "We are extremely disappointed by this decision. Yet again, there is a failure of the state to prosecute following the use of force. This is a shameful decision that flies in the face of the evidence about the dangerous use of force used against people being forcibly removed and the knowledge base that existed within G4S and the Home Office about the dangers of restraint techniques. It once again raises concerns about the quality of the investigations into deaths following the use of force by state agents and the decision-making process of the CPS.

"The impetus now must be for a far reaching, effective and prompt inquest, with the full involvement of his family. There must be full, open and public scrutiny of all the events that led to his death at the hands of private G4S security guards."

Mark Scott of Bhatt Murphy the family's solicitor said: "The family are devastated that the circumstances of Mr Mubenga's death and the people restraining him will not be called to explain their actions in criminal proceedings. The DPP's decision not to prosecute is deeply troubling. The evidence is that Mr Mubenga died after crying for help whilst under restraint. This is not capable of being determined behind closed doors without a full examination of the witnesses and the medical evidence. It is a surprise and shock that the DPP has not learned the lessons of earlier decisions and still sees fit to act as judge and jury rather than allowing the normal path of criminal justice to be followed."

This press release from INQUEST, Notes to editors:

1. Jimmy Mubenga died whilst being restrained during a removal from the UK on 12 October 2010. He was being escorted by three private security guards working for Group 4 Services (G4S) contracted by the UK Border Agency (UKBA).

A full briefing his death is available here: http://www.inquest.org.uk/pdf/briefings/INQUEST_parliamentary_inquiry_call_Jimmy_Mubenga_b riefing.pdf:mad:

Damn missed putting them in. That's for the remix. Youtube made it look shite but it was either upping it (third time and risking it crash) decent quality - "you have 200 minutes remaining on your upload" - or using imovie "your upload will take 6 minutes". Bah.

The trial of G4S rooftop occupiers begins August 06, 2012

The two activists who occupied the roof of G4S' HQ near Crawley for eight hours on 2nd July 2012 appeared in court today to plead guilty/not guilty to an 'aggravated trespass' charge under Section 68 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994.

Both defendants pleaded 'not guilty' on the basis that, among other things, the activity they are accused of obstructing/disrupting is unlawful (in reference to G4S' contract with the Israeli Prison service and services to Israeli settlements and military checkpoints, the use of unlawful restraint techniques in immigration detention centres and so on).

Section 68 states that a person commits the offence of aggravated trespass s/he trespasses on land where persons are engaged in a lawful activity with the intention of intimidating those persons, obstructing or disrupting that activity.

The draconian bail conditions that had been imposed by the police (not to trespass anywhere in the UK, not to enter the borough of Crawley, and not to enter any land or building associated with G4S anywhere within the UK) were varied by the court. The first two conditions were removed altogether and the third was limited to the boundaries of the G4S HQ concerned. The court seemed to agree with the defendants that the original condition meant they could not enter or use numerous public and private buildings "associated with G4S" (where the company provides security, for example), from banks, hospitals and stations to prisons and possibly the court building itself.

A court hearing date was set for the 3rd and 4th December 2012 at Horsham and Haywards Heath magistrates courts respectively.

Background:
- International campaign against G4S gathers momentum
- Many reasons to stop G4S

they're only doing it with a view to getting the contract when the army becomes privatised

It struck me a while ago that the logical conclusion of fundamentalist free-market capitalism would be the privatization of government itself. Someone should write a book about this, or make a film or something. If it hasn't been done already.

Good that it's being made public, at least. Although no doubt it'll just be a few low-level thugs who get the boot while the cunts in charge wring their hands about "bad apples" and then carry just as they always have.
