Spain’s supermarket expropriations spread

Supermarket expropriations have extended to other parts of Spain, following the example of ‘Robin Hood’ mayor José Manuel Sánchez Gordillo in Andalusia.

A store of the global  supermarket chain Carrefour in the town of Merida in the western region of Extremadura was hit Friday by 50 members of the Platform for Basic Income in Extremadura.

The regional leader of the radical United Left coalition Pedro Escobar backed what he described as a ‘symbolic’ action  that would ‘draw attention to, and provoke reflection about the extreme situation that many families are in. ‘ Escobar observed that some families were in such dire straits that they were actually going hungry.
