The New Zealand PFLP Solidarity Campaign has had its Paypal account closed. When
asked what had happened they responded with a formal statement about sanctions
against terrorist support etc, very much in the same vein as Facebook's response
when they shut down the NZ PFLP solidarity Facebook page and other similar pages
in support of the PFLP, FARC and other organisations. The campaign raises money
for the PFLP.

Obviously there is no chance that Paypal will change its policy but this makes
it very difficult for the PFLP Solidarity Campaign to raise money by selling
PFLP tshirts etc, especially to supporters outside New Zealand. Does anyone know
of alternative means of facilitating payment that doies not involve businesses
based in the US and willing to  act against progressive acampaigns and groups
like this?

Incidentally, the PFLP is not currently on the New Zealand government's list of
terrorist organisations.
Cheers,
John
