Guest Contributor Saajida Malvina weighs into the Boycott Woolworths debacle.

A boycott is an act of voluntarily abstaining from purchasing, using, or dealing with a person, company, organisation or country as an expression of protest. For the past 4 months Palestinian solidarity groups have called on people to boycott Woolworths stores, and at the end of each month protest action has been held outside the store.

Last month's action was marred with intimidation and violence in Durban and Johannesburg. Protesters dispersing from Durban’s Pavilion Mall were manhandled and subjected to aggressive behaviour from the mall's security. Sixty protesters who were getting into their vehicles after the protest held at Killarney Mall in Gauteng were arrested by the police and taken to Hillbrow police station. This prompted anger with people holding a vigil outside, whilst others took to social media prompting a #BDS60 campaign. The protesters were freed.

Woolworths has been targeted for its role in importing goods from Israel. Whilst this is compliant with South African law, it has refused to meet the ideals of Palestinian solidarity forums. South Africa’s foot traffic to the store has decreased and it has been noted the store is having a sale for the 4th consecutive month. During the September/October period Woolworths had a drop of R621 794.54 in their MYSchool loyalty program. Business Times reports that the store had a drop in sales, but stopped short of saying if it was due to the boycott. read more

When I worked for the security department of a large retail store, my duties included responding to fire and burglar alarms. A side door of the building was wired with a security alarm, because it was not supposed to be used by customers.

Nevertheless they found the convenience of the exit tempting. Even a sign with large red letters, warning "Alarm will sound if opened," failed to deter people from using it. One day, after attending to a number of shrieking alarms, I placed a small handmade sign on the door that totally eliminated the problem: "Wet paint."
