Denmark’s supreme court convicted six people for selling FARC and PFLP logos T-shirts
A group of six defendants members of the Danish activist organization Fighters and Lovers have been convicted by Denmark’s supreme court for merchandising T-shirts bearing the logos of Colombian and Palestinian resistance groups, both belonging to the U.S terrorist list, in 2003. From the amount collected for each product, about $33 U.S dollars, 75 cents were destined to support a Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) radio station and an Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) graphics studio. The T-shirts, as it was stated in 2008, violated the Danish anti- terrorist legislation established after the September 11, 2001 attacks, as they directly supported terrorists organizations.
The High Court sentenced two of the activists to six months imprisonment and the other four received suspended sentences. Later, all the six sentences were suspended and reduced to 60 days.
