UNICEF logo on Palestinian hate ad was used without permission, says UNICEF
On March 23, 2010, PMW reported that a Palestinian NGO, PYALARA, had published a hate advertisement with a picture of a giant ax destroying a Star of David. The bottom of the ad had the logos of UNICEF, PA TV and PYALARA (Palestinian Youth Association for Leadership and Rights Activation).
The following is UNICEF's statement in response to the PMW bulletin:
" UNICEF does not endorse the use of violent imagery and abhors the inappropriate use of its logo to suggest otherwise. The use of violence runs counter to UN values and principles. UNICEF was not consulted by PYALARA about the use of its logo in a poster announcing a youth broadcast and it condemns the use of its logo to imply endorsement of political opinions."
