Banned anti-Balfour ad campaign runs on London’s black cabs

Anti-Balfour ad campaign, which was banned by Transport For London, are seen on London’s black cabs

An advertising campaign to raise awareness of the effects of the Balfour Declaration which was banned by transport bosses in the British capital, London, is being used on the iconic black cabs.

The campaign, which is running using the hashtag #makeitright, is an attempt to highlight the negative impact of the Balfour Declaration 100 years after it was signed.

Earlier this month, the government body which runs London Underground said it blocked the campaign from transport links on the basis that the issue is politically controversial; however, the Palestinian Ambassador to the UK Manuel Hassassian accused the body of censorship.

The adverts had been drawn up to run in key stations in the run up to the centenary of the signing of the declaration on 2 November.

Numerous black cabs will now be seen driving round London’s streets highlighting the plight of Palestinians living in the occupied territories and in refugee camps as a result of the “British Government’s broken promise”.

    Next time you are offered a state perhaps you should take it instead of amassing an army of several nations to try and commit genocide on all the Jews in their new state of Israel.

    You can lie to us all you like but you can not change facts and history though you try.
