The Board of Deputies has said it stopped a “shabby” poster campaign by Palestinian supporters calling for the cancellation of the ‘Tel Aviv in London’ event.
Activists from London Palestine Action, who were this week protesting UK-Israel arms sale at a trade fair, earlier caused consternation by targeting bus shelters throughout the capital, calling for #TLV in LDN to be cancelled.
However the Board gained agreement from the Mayor of London’s office that all material would be removed, in coordination with site agents JCDecaux.
“We understand that Transport for London are currently looking into whether there was any wrongdoing and will consider enforcement action as appropriate,” said a Board spokesman on Monday.
“We would like to thank the Mayor’s team for their quick response. Unlike this shabby poster campaign, we are sure that the Tel Aviv in London Festival will be a huge success and would commend all Londoners to attend.”
The cultural festival, which celebrates the best of Tel Aviv’s food, art and fashion scene, is due to take place at various venues in north London from Friday. The majority of events will be staged at The Roundhouse in Camden.
