Swiss railway cannot ban placard critical of Israel...

The Swiss Federal Railways must allow a placard criticising Israel to be hung in the Zurich main railway station, according to a decision by the Swiss Federal Court in Lausanne.

The placard commenting on Israel’s settlement policy had been hung in the station in March 2009. It contained the phrases "Israel: built with violence on Palestinian land” and “Injustice calls for resistance!”.

It had been put up by a placard posting company on behalf of a member of the Palestine Solidarity Action group.

The railway company had removed the poster, which hung for three days in several areas of the station, after being notified of its political content. Full story...
