The “Disappearing Palestine” wall mural at the Vancouver City Centre skytrain station was stolen by vandals over the weekend. The mural was recently extended for a second month thanks to a special donation to the Palestine Awareness Coalition by Vancouver lawyer, activist and former city councillor Tim Louis. The mural will be replaced shortly.
“This disruption will not silence our ad campaign. It is striking that our campaign was chosen in an attempt to silence the simple truth,” said Marty Roth of the Palestine Awareness Coalition.
The “Disappearing Palestine” advertisement campaign was launched on Vancouver public transit on August 27, 2013 by the Palestine Awareness Coalition, formed by seven Vancouver-area peace and justice groups. It depicts the shrinking land of Palestine and Israeli expansionism over the past 65 years. For more information, please visit palestineawarenesscoalition.wordpress.com.
