The Ads Toronto Transit Commission Doesn’t Want Us To See
Israeli settlement building in the occupied Palestinian territories clearly violates the Fourth Geneva Convention, the Rome Statute of the ICC and the UN Security Council Resolution 465.
Nevertheless TTC has rejected a group’s bus ad showing Israel’s expropriation of Palestinian land over time, claiming the ad could incite anti-Jewish discrimination and violence.
TTC spokesman Brad Ross said that the transit body did not accept that Israel’s confiscation of Palestinian land was either “unfair” or “illegal.”
“There is no finding in our legal opinion of illegality around loss of land under international law … no court, no tribunal has ruled on loss of land being illegal,” Ross added.
Tweet @BradTTC tell him Israel’s settler colonialism is UNFAIR & ILLEGAL.
