Scottish drive to put Israeli apartheid wall on Google Maps
An international push to make Google show Israel’s illegal wall around Palestinian territory on its Maps service will be launched this week by a Scottish MEP.
Alyn Smith will launch the #showthewall
petition in partnership with the global activism network Avaaz, which has 44m members in 194 countries. Smith, who sits on the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, said the absence of the so-called “separation barrier” from Google Maps appeared “deliberate and excessive”.
