Raelian billboard rebuffed

The Raelians are complaining that they can't seem to convince any billboard company in Canada to accept their latest ad. It features images of an equilateral cross with its four arms at 90-degree angles, along with the slogan "Let's Reclaim the Swastika".

The group says Canadians must be educated about the widespread and peaceful use of the swastika in other cultures predating Nazi Germany.

The logo for the Raelian movement incorporates a swastika and a six pointed star. Founder Rael says he was given the symbol by space aliens who visited him in 1973.

The Raelians say given that billboard companies are reluctant to post their ad, they'll use rallies and other means to promote what they've dubbed their "swastika rehabilitation campaign".

    It's true that this symbol is very old! You can find it on a canadian hocky team jersey just a few decades ago. I agree with the raelians that we should rehabilitate the true meaning of this peace symbol...
