From the Facebook page of Palestine Action Group Sydney
“As part of the ongoing campaign for solidarity with Palestine, Palestine Action Group will be holding a peaceful protest against Max Brenner at Parramatta Westfield on Saturday, 17 August to show solidarity with Palestine and boycott Israeli apartheid.
Max Brenner is an ongoing target of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign for its support for Israel and the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).
Max Brenner supports the torture, displacement and genocide of the Palestinians. The company is owned by…”

The last line of their diatribe is …
“Help us build the event by sharing and inviting your friends list”
I wonder how many invites were sent by their 2,664 invited guests.?
According to their FB page there were 318 acceptances. By the look of the numbers on the photos, there were no more than 25.
I’ve been involved now close to 3 years with BDS actions and have seen their numbers diminishing rapidly. The first one in Parramatta involved a couple of hundred people. The noise from their screaming was deafening. Mind you, this was before the police knew what was in store for them and they were not more than a few metres from Max Brenner.
Until this time I certainly didn’t hold with the line “Don’t give them oxygen”. It was standing there, watching and listening to a screaming horde, most of whom I think were part of ‘rent-a-crowd’, that I realised how stupid it was.
Two hundred people standing there screaming…
“From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free”
Alternating it with
“Max Brenner, come off it, there’s blood in your hot chocolate”
I also came to realise that most people just walked passed these happenings taking absolutely no notice. In fact,it has been good for business for Max Brenner. Their sales figures have shown an amazing increase with all the free publicity. Fortunately the media and politicians are on side.
Where it was initially organised by Patrick Langosch and his Socialist Alternative Party, a Marxist Party, not the Greens, which was a popular misconception, it is now being run by a young guy who is so full of hate it’s not funny. I’ve had a few run-ins with him. He claims to come from East Jerusalem.
His group Palestine Action Group Sydney, along with the Socialist Alternative Party, have in its group a fair few of the ‘enemy within’. One of whom I have ‘engaged’ with regularly, who is not only Jewish, but Gay too. I’ve pointed out to him on a number of occasions, that he’d better not go to Gaza, as Hamas would soon have him hanging on the nearest crane. !!
Photos of yesterday’s ‘rally’.
And last, and by no means least, as the third photo shows, whilst this was going on outside Max Brenner’s chocolate shop, three Muslim girls, complete with hijabs, were sitting there drinking their hot chocolate !!!
THAT IS WHAT I CALL PRICELESS
