In a victory for the Palestinian Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS)
movement, Edinburgh University Student Association (EUSA) yesterday
overwhelmingly passed a motion through its Student Council to block
their contract with security firm G4S, and to lobby the University to
follow suit.

G4S currently provide security services to Edinburgh University library,
which prompted Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) to begin a campaign
to force the University to tear up its contract with the security firm.
It was then recently discovered that EUSA were also in the process of
hiring the firm for money collecting services. This led to a motion
quickly going before Student Council and it was clearly passed, meaning
the Union’s trustee board must now look for an alternative.
