Hot chocolate too tempting for anti-Israel activists?

Hot chocolate too tempting for anti-Israel activists?
news_item/113.jpg

In an interesting turn of events, four of the 19 people arrested for engaging in the violent protests against an Israeli-owned cafe in Melbourne have been arrested for breaching their bail condition of not going within 50m of the cafe. As reported by the ABC:

Last month, 19 activists were arrested outside a Max Brenner store after allegedly chaining themselves to furniture.

The group was not to go within 50 metres of the company’s two two CBD stores.

A spokeswoman for BDS says the four protesters were arrested early this morning.

This news comes just one day after the Victorian government decided to check if these boycotts were actually illegal. Reporters have not yet confirmed whether or not the boycotters had gravitated toward Max Brenner because they were powerless to resist the decadently delicious chocolate fondue.
