Robin Hood Returns!

Greek ‘robin hoods’ raid stores to fight high prices
Greek anarchists stormed a supermarket on Thursday and handed out food for free in the latest of a wave of raids provoked by soaring consumer prices.
About 20 unarmed people, mostly wearing black hoods, carried out the midday robbery in the northern city of Thessaloniki, police said.
Local media have labelled the raiders “Robin Hoods” following previous raids.
They take only packets of pasta, rice and cartons of milk which they drop in the middle of the street for people to collect, a police official said.
“They have never stolen money or hurt anyone. They ask people to remain calm but use ambush tactics, jumping over cash desks,” he said.
“When they attack without hoods, people are surprised to see that they are mostly women.”
A Direct Action tactic worth trying here during the coming Slump?
