(en) al marseille, Palestine - ADIEU PAYPAL, HELLO SOLIDARITY! (fr) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 13 Mar 2018 07:41:07 +0200

A few days ago, we received a message from PayPal online payment service stating: "Due to the nature of your activities, we have chosen to permanently suspend access to our services" without further explanation. ---- The nature of our activities is well known: fight for justice and equal rights, against racism, here in France and there in Israel-Palestine. That's why the Zionist lobby is trying to reach us, as it seeks to cross-fight the BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanctions) international campaign with the placing on a "black list" [1] of a series of 'friendly associations like the AFPS ("France Palestine Solidarity Association") or JVP ("Jewish Voice for Peace") to forbid them to come to Palestine to show their solidarity. ---- Following the closure of the PayPal account of the AFPS [2], shortly before ours, the Jerusalem Post reported that this had occurred at the request of the "Zachor Legal Institute", a "think tank" created specifically to combat the BDS campaign. Still according to the Jerusalem Post, taken by a French far right website, a representative of PayPal reportedly commented on the case that the American company was anxious to "respect the laws and regulations around the world" and had "zero tolerance To the use of its services "to facilitate illegal activities". We therefore see that these actions are part of the international campaign of denigration of the BDS campaign and all the organizations adhering to it, consisting of wanting to make the legitimate call to the Boycott as "anti-Semite".

Of course, the measures of our opponents do not impress us, on the contrary. They mean that our efforts to bring a Jewish voice to justice are bearing fruit if Zionist propaganda is reduced to these unjust and draconian processes. We will obviously require further explanation from PayPal, based in a country where freedom of expression - which is part of the BDS campaign - is held sacred, and we reserve the right to take legal action.

For our part, we found other secure online payment solutions. And we always need you to develop our actions, so do not hesitate!
