"Around 30 persons invaded during Saturday noon the supermarket "Sklavenitis" on Harilaou Trikoupi street stealing foods..."
Following is a communique, that circulated at http://seeyouonthebarricades.blogspot.com - http://athens.indymedia.org.
Today, 31/5 at 12:30 an intervention against high-prices took places inside a large supermarket, Sklavenitis on Harilaou Trikoupi. Stuff of basic needs were expropriated (foods, detergents etc) and all of them were given to passerby people at the popular market area of Exarchia, together with fliers and the following text:
The last time, we all witness (literally and imaginary) a phenomenon that was always part of the tactics of employers and authoritarians in general. Needy products being sold in outrageous prices, because that's the way of the "free market". The same "free economy" that obliges us to lose half our lives in the workplace-dungeons for 600 euros. Basic stuff we need, that are produced in our locality, are sold in almost double price, than in other European countries. The same time, foods we find every day in our plates, like oil and olive oil, are still out of control, while they speak of thousands of tones polluted with mineral oils. Government and ministers talk of a few phenomena of speculators, trying with ridiculous communication tricks (see also their 41 measures against high-prices) to pacify the social unrest. Together with the known snitches (TV, newspapers) agreeing with whatever their bosses command. Of course, the rest of the political parties wouldn't stay out of the gate, talking in general of the uncontrolled market, for the isolation of the speculators and the meaning of consumer conscience. A conscience produced -of course- methodically, through TV ads and a systematic ultra-consumer culture.
Since we deny to join this set up game, we apply into action, our own pack of measures against the bosses uncontrollable speculation!
