To the sound of discomusic, a dozen people blocked the checkout tills with some well-filled trolleys, while others shouted slogans « War on the high cost of living ! », « Champagne for the price of beer ! »,« Everything free on Tuesdays ! » Leaflets were given out and a banner hung 'Tax their profits'.
Customers and staff were quite enthusiastic about the action, even if some of them remarked « it would be better to take from the big distributors for the rich, such as supermarkets like Carrefour, than from distribution for the poor like Intermarché... » As if they weren't the same crooks..
We'll never forget the words of an old woman who said:« We should do that all the time, everybody should start doing it! ! »
No chance to get the trolleys out: the management preferred to sacrifice some of their profits (by closing the shop for the time it took for the police to arrive) rather than lose their merchandise. Ten minutes later, about 30 policemen (BAC, Police Nationale) burst into the shop, flashballs out to defend the booty. They surrounded the group of people, took photographs, searched each one of them, before letting them go. The participants refused all the same to show their faces and refused to have their ID checked and left happy all the same at having upset the commodity system a little.
New year's feast canceled, we're set to start again, because we should be doing that all the time!
