Well the Facebook page was being hammered, they were posting everywhere, had a massive list of speakers. It was going to be a big fest against Max Brenners in Parramatta yesterday. They even organised it to be on the Jewish Sabbath to keep opposition numbers.
The Parramatta council warned there would be fines for not obeying the rules. "Freedom of Speech" they shouted. "You can't stop us!!"
They got 20 people. Yep, that's it. 20.
The main organiser is a very angry young man. Devout Muslim.
He must have been a bit miffed at the clientele, enjoying their nice hot chocolate:
This campaign is doing wonders for Max Brenners publicity, and they are laughing all the way to the bank. I went to the Melbourne Central shop today. The queues to order were out the door. And yes, as always, there were many hijabs prominent.
Thanks to Shirlee Finn for the write up and the photos.
