After a year-long campaign from JVP-North Carolina and a coalition of faith groups, social justice organizers, students, and peace activists, Durham County Commissioners voted on Monday to drop their decade-long $1 million dollar contract with G4S Secure Solutions and re-open it to new bidders.

This is the first time a municipality has voted to drop G4S because of their role in the Israeli Occupation. It's a landmark victory but the battle might not be over: G4S could fight to win the contract back, and we need to be sure the County Commissioners don't let that happen.

Join us in thanking them for their decision, and in asking them to hold strong.

Dear Durham County Commissioners,

We join Durham residents in thanking you for your decision to heed the voices in your community and drop your contract with G4S Secure Solutions. We urge you to hold strong in keeping prison and Occupation profiteers like G4S out of the Durham community.
