On Saturday (3rd) in Athens a small contingent of anarchists went into a chain supermarket store and filled trolleys with food and other essentials. They breezed past the checkout without so much as a glance and took the goods to a nearby open market in Exarcheia (Athens’s anarcho epicentre).
There they redistributed the basics to citizens, mainly pensioners. Earlier that day the group had hung banners stating “Their riches, our blood” and “Expropriation of capital everywhere”. Indymedia Athens reports that overall the response was positive apart from a few disgruntled supermarkets employees that take their job too seriously, who bemoaned, “Shame on you” as the trolleys strolled past.
