Cancel the contract with CACI for the Scottish Census 2011 sign now

The Stop the War Coalition in Scotland expresses its grave concern that CACI (UK), a subsidiary of a company alleged to be involved in torturing Iraqi prisoners in Abu Ghraib, has been awarded the contract to run the 2011 census in Scotland (Sunday Herald, 27th July 2008).

We welcome the comments of Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, on the World Against War march in Glasgow (15th March 2008), we now have a government in Scotland that opposes the war in Iraq and is prepared to say so.

We were surprised therefore to read that the Scottish Government intends to work with CACI. This appears to contradict its opposition to the war and to the use of torture.

Furthermore awarding millions of taxpayers money to a subsidiary of a firm that has benefited from a contract at Abu Ghraib, profiting from an illegal and immoral occupation, is contrary to the views of the majority of the Scottish public.

We have serious concerns that CACIs close links to the Bush administration may lead to information given by Scottish households for the census being sifted through by the US Government in the interests of homeland security.

We the undersigned call on the Scottish Government to withdraw the contract awarded to CACI (UK) a subsidiary company of CACI International, for the Scottish National Census 2011.
