(en) Media, Greek "Robin Hoods" raid stores to fight high prices

Date Fri, 05 Sep 2008 06:43:57 +0300



Greek anarchists stormed a supermarket 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 Thesaaloniki, 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."

The rising cost of living has replaced unemployment as Greeks' main concern.
Inflation is officially running at a 10-year high of 4.9 percent although many
items have risen in price more sharply.
