'Unfair' burqa posters shake up Swiss naturalization debate
A controversial poster launched by Swiss rightwing hardliners to campaign against the forthcoming referendum on facilitated naturalization for third generation immigrants has been lambasted by some as embarrassing and unfair.
The poster, unveiled in railway stations across Switzerland this week, shows a woman wearing a burqa with the strapline "Uncontrolled naturalization? No to facilitated naturalization".
It was commissioned by a committee co-led by Swiss People's Party (SVP) MP Andreas Glarner to oppose the facilitated naturalization bill, which goes to the polls on February 12th.
