G4S: Securing whose world?
In a privatised children's prison, a care worker restrained a boy who died; G4S promoted him. After guards killed an asylum-seeker on a plane, G4S was handed a public contract to provide housing for asylum-seekers — they've made a mess of that. In a prison van in Australia they baked a man to death.
Welcome to our investigation into G4S, the security and surveillance people who see democratic uprisings as a business opportunity. They're running privatised public services worldwide.
Led by acclaimed investigative reporters Clare Sambrook and Rebecca Omonira-Oyekanmi, Shine A Light exposes injustice, challenges official lying, and provides intelligence and ammunition to people working for policy change.
