Palestine Activists send Message to Obama: We want 3G!

Klare Ansage von Aktivisten aus Palästina: Wir brauchen hier endlich mal ein vernünftiges mobiles Netz!

“This initiative was an individual effort aimed at sending two main messages to Obama about the Palestinian people’s conditions under occupation,” says Mahir Alawneh, one of the three young Palestinian men behind the initiative.

The first message, he says, highlights the fact that the Palestinian people have been deprived of the right to have 3G telecommunication technology because they compete with Israeli companies. “The idea crossed our minds thanks to a situation president Obama went through, when he insisted on using his BlackBerry smartphone” after his election, Alawneh says.
