We the undersigned petition to urge the Irish Government to cancel their contract with CACI (UK), who have been contracted to collect data from Irish citizens for the upcoming Census 2011.
CACI (UK) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of US contractor CACI International. CACI have faced heavy criticism for their role as interrogators at Abu Ghraib prison during the height of the prisoner abuse scandal in 2004.
CACI International are known to have interrogated people detained without charge at Abu Ghraib. They did so under US rules of engagement that permitted sleep deprivation, sensory deprivation and intimidation by dogs. Without the support of the United States these practices would generally be considered to violate international human rights norms.'
