Well, its not the term used by them, they call it food expropriation, but what else can you call filling carts with stuff and leaving by force without paying?
When thousands of Argentineans left after the crisis and moved to Spain I’m sure they never thought they would see that again.
To be fair they aren’t taking booze and big screen TVs, but taking what isn’t yours is still under the same principle. Would you do any different if you couldn’t put food on the table and spent months unemployed? In this case Trade Union workers filled carts with basic food staples to be redistributed by an ONG among the needy. This happened in well know socialist cities of Cadiz and Sevilla, which has 32% unemployment.
The lesson for today my friends is, never to rejoice in the misery of others. You never know if one day you may suffer that same fate. Many of these images are carbon copies of what many Argentines had gone through and still suffer today.
