100 ‘Decolonise Palestine’ posters appear in London for Balfour centenary

Posters reading ‘Decolonise Palestine’ have appeared all over London’s transport network

Some 100 posters have appeared all over London’s transport network, as part of a “guerrilla” advertising campaign to protest against the Balfour Declaration centenary.

The “Decolonise Palestine” posters are an initiative of activists’ group London Palestine Action, who said it was “a direct response to Transport for London’s banning of planned Palestinian adverts”.

“This attack on Palestinian voices, on an occasion that marks the start of the settler colonisation of Palestine, will not go unanswered,” the group added.

“As the UK government welcomes Israeli war criminals to celebrate the Balfour Declaration, Palestinian voices will not be censored,” the statement continued, “and we will not stay silent over UK support and facilitation of the oppression, murder and expulsion of the Palestinian people.”

Each one of the 100 posters “represents a year of UK-instigated colonisation”.
