In-mall antics

Recently, there was some sort of Bondi Junction anti-Israel activity near that excellent ice cream / chocolate shop Max Brenner.  Since it was a little hard to know how to describe it, it’s useful to read the Divest This websites description of something similar in the U.S.

“As actual retailers (such as Trader Joe’s) routinely reject requests to participate in political boycotts, the BDSers have been reduced to singing and dancing (badly) and smearing mud on themselves in department stores to get anyone’s attention. While these antics might help them feel like they are “doing something,” this type of stunt work increasingly feels like an excuse to act naughty in front of grownups (with success measured in YouTube hits, rather than actual boycotted Israeli products).”
