Gaza photo exhibit faces censorship threat in Montreal

on 4 Comments

Muzzlewatch has a disgusting story about an exhibit of photos from Gaza that has been featured for the last few weeks at a Montreal cinema, but may be coming down. Emphasis mine:

On Monday, Feb. 15th, Cinema du Parc received an email insisting that CJPME’s Photo Exposition, Human Drama in Gaza, be immediately removed from the Cinema.  The email was from a legal representative of Gestion Redbourne PDP Inc., the owners of the building housing Cinema du Parc.  The Cinema has hosted dozens of expositions in the past three years, and this is the first time that such action has been taken.  This move on the part of Redbourne seems entirely political, to muzzle the message of Human Drama in Gaza.

Go to this site–Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East, which sponsors the show–to sign a petition on the censorship.

(Oh, and picking up on the italicized passage– for those who don’t believe in the Israel lobby theory: would a similar exhibition of photos from, say, Iraq or Afghanistan be censored?)
