retail therapy [shop till you drop]

I attended this day of action in Manchester today  to protest about the murder of ,now, 1000 Palestinians by Israel.
Last week had seen an even  larger march in Manchester.
today's march was smaller ,maybe because of the "Direct Action" element?
Today was a walk  through the city centre.Stopping off at Banks & businesses that support Israel.
It ended at the Kedem shop on King Street.
Kedem has now been targetted for 7  days.Today we were met by a couple of hundred people who supported the shop.They waved Israel flags & union jacks and were not happy (they lost another whole day's trade today..Ironically their 'friends' helped to prevent any shoppers going  anywhere near the place)
Kedem is an upmarket beauty product shop that sells stuff made in Israel & sourced from the Dead Sea.
One of the Kedemians  was rather rude to a young Muslim woman who had brought her young children on the protest.
"You should be ashamed of yourself bring children to such a dangerous place" she spat in the Muslims face.Which is rather ironic.Non?
