Sydney: Protesters target Max Brenner for ties to Israeli military

Issue 

Max Brenner Chocolate in Newtown, Sydney was targeted on August 20 by pro-Palestinian protesters (see video below) in support of the global boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign against Israel.

The large Israeli company that owns the Max Brenner Chocolate chain has been targetted by the non-violent BDS campaign against Israeli apartheid because it sponsors an Israeli army unit notorious for its repression of Palestinians.

The action also protested the arrests of several BDS activists in Melbourne for engaging in peaceful protest. Vivienne Porzsolt, from Jews Against The Occupation, explained why it was ridiculous and a slander to try and brand the BDS movement anti-Semitic which it clearly is not. In fact, she added, the BDS movement was pro-freedom and anti-racist.
