Local Middle Eastern & Muslim leaders here are upset at the the Liberal Party for threatening to send back the illegal boat people and to restrict immigration if they win the next election. So last weekend they boycotted all Australian-owned businesses in the Sydney area as a demonstration of their economic impact on the community.
The boycott was declared a success by noting that revenue in Aussie-owned businesses was down by 19%.

However, it is reported that Aussie business owners also declared the boycott a success, pointing out that shoplifting was reduced by 77%, money orders sent out of the country were down by 97%, the cost of daily clean-up and trash collection was down by 84%.
Shoppers reported that they could actually hear English being spoken throughout the community for the first time in recent memory, and customers actually paid for purchases with real money, not government debit cards or fake credit cards. – contributed
