UN seal of approval gives NGOs a chance to spread the hate

Accreditation from United Nations gives NGOs free publicity via a link to the UN webpage and free ads in NGO Action News, a biweekly newsletter published by the UN.
The latest edition of the UN's NGO Action News (April-May 2006) advertises, free of charge, a campaign to object to the then proposed Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2006 (which was subsequently adopted). The November 2005 NGO Action News advertised an international seminar by Health Work Committees, the Alternative Information Center, and the Alternative Group which included a workshop called "Boycott, Sanctions and Divestment," and a paper on "Local and International Perspectives on a One State Solution."

The October-November 2005 NGO Action News announced a conference organized by The Palestine Center promising to discuss "Churches and Divestment: A Third Party Intervention."
