Background

Monday the 27th of April 35 bus lines in Copenhagen drove out in the capitals streets with a new advertising whose purpose is to draw attention on the illegality of Israeli settlement products in Denmark, Europe as well as in international context. The campaign urges the consumers to avoid settlement products and it also urges food importers to abide by EU legislation concerning the labelling of settlement products.

Movia shuts down the campaign

After 4 days and around 100 complaints, most of them in english and identical, the Israeli ambassador turning up in person the day of the board meeting and the far rightwing-politician Finn Rudaizkys personal approach to a board member, the board voted, except one member, to stop the campaign immediately from 1 May this year.

The reaction to Movia’s censorship 

This has given rise to national and international concern and indignation and also massive media coverage. There has been established a protestsite on Facebook that encourages people to send Movia their complaints. The campaign is VERY contented with all the publicity that cannot be bought for money and the overwhelming support as a result of the events. It is about freedom of expression and thus about getting the advertisements back on the busses in Copenhagen where they belong in accordance to the original agreement with Movia.

Our response is to further intensify the campaign

This fund-raising shall finance a more powerfull and this time a tremendous nationwide campaign-boost, where other media then the busses, as they all are owned by Movia in Denmark, will be used. Through this crowdfunding you can be part of the support that will turn this into reality.
