Guerilla Projection To Protest Banning Of Palestinian History By TfL #Balfour100

#Balfour100 guerilla projection outside Waterloo station to protest against TfL banning of Balfour Declaration advert showing Palestinian history


On 22nd October 2017, Inminds human rights group carried out a guerilla projection outside Waterloo railway station, the UK busiest station with more that 99.2 million people entering it and exiting it every year, to protest the UK governments Transport for London decision to ban paid adverts displaying Palestinian objections to the Balfour Declaration.

100 years ago on 2nd November 1917 British foreign Minister Sir Arthur Balfour wrote a letter to Lord Rothschild, chairman of the Zionist Federation, promising UK support to establish in Palestine a national home for Jewish people.

This promise and subsequent support lead directly to the Nakba, the destruction of Palestine with over 530 Palestinian towns and villages razed to the ground, wiped of the map. 80% of the indigenous Palestinian population ethnically cleansed from their land through Zionist terrorism and massacres, scattered across the globe, rendered refugees - today they number over 7.2 million - with one in three refugees world wide being a Palestinian, they are never allowed to return to their homes. The continued ongoing suffering of the Palestinian people to this day can directly be traced back to this letter written in London 100 years ago.

Inminds chair Abbas Ali said "The Balfour Declaration was a call for the destruction of Palestine, a green light for the ethnic cleansing of its people, and a license to steal their land. 100 years on, the British government has done nothing to redress this crime. Rather than apologise for the Balfour Declaration, the government is celebrating it.. rolling out the red carpet to the war criminal Netanyahu. And now they are even censoring the history behind it. The governments transport division for the capital - Transport for London (TfL)- has banned paid adverts displaying Palestinian objections to the Balfour Declaration which were meant to be displayed across London tube stations to mark the centenary. We are here to reveal to Londoners the history the government has banned, on the walls outside the country's busiest railway station."

The projection was very well received with people taking time to read the slides and congratulating us for doing something about TfL's shameful censorship. The constant steam of cars along York Road, all stopping at the traffic lights next to our projection, were also very sympathetic, showing their support with hoots and v signs from their windows. Building workers from the nearby construction also came out to watch the full slide show of 30 slides.

The Palestinian Ambassador to the UK Manuel Hassassian said "We are deeply disappointed that TfL refused to run our modest advocacy campaign which aimed to raise awareness, among the British public, about the way the Balfour Declaration affected the Palestinian people.”

“It was appropriate and timely to run this campaign as we mark the centenary of the Balfour Declaration, which was instrumental in the forced expulsion of the Palestinians from Palestine who made up 90% of the population in 1917.”

"Palestinian history is a censored history. There has been a 100-year-long cover-up of the British government’s broken promise, in the Balfour declaration, to safeguard the rights of the Palestinians when it gave away their country to another people. TfL’s decision is not surprising as it is, at best, susceptible to or, at worst, complicit with, all the institutional forces and active lobby groups which continuously work to silence the Palestinian narrative. There may be free speech in Britain on every issue under the sun but not on Palestine.”

"Britain has unfinished business when it comes to Palestine. It has a legal and moral responsibility which must be acknowledged. Restorative action must be taken to give back the Palestinians their basic rights and self-determination."

[On Muslim prisoners post-911] "Its important for us not just to be able to fight the case legally but also for somebody like him to get them moral support. One should not look at the fact whether or not somebody is convicted.. one should be looking at the fact there is an individual here who is suffering mentally, physically and needs support - just letters and cards to say to him 'Are you okay? Please do not give up hope' - support of that nature is important for individuals like Isa and others like him.. remember this much - he converted to Islam, he doesn't have a Muslim family - where as others may have a Muslim family, extended members who may write to them and support them. Give moral support, it really does help a prisoner when he is sitting in his cell locked up 23 hours of the day.."
