Google: Put Palestine on your maps!
A new petition is taking off on change.org challenging google to name Palestine on its maps.Last week Palestinian activists expressed their anger as google seemingly removed Palestine from their maps, leaving the whole area labelled “Israel’, and marking the Palestinian territories of Gaza and the West Bank simply with a dotted line.
The petition on change.org is calling for google to recognise Palestine on its maps, and clearly identify the Palestinian territories as illegally occupied by Israel.
Whether intentionally or otherwise, Google is making itself complicit in the Israeli government’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine.
You can sign the campaign here, and please also share it on social media and among your networks.
