Robin Hood mayor promises more supermarket food raids
The mayor of the Seville town of Marinaleda, Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo, promised on Wednesday a repeat of the extraordinary scenes he orchestrated the day before, when he led hundreds of members of the Andalusian Union of Workers (SAT) in robbing products from two supermarkets. The Robin Hood-style escapade was carried out, Sánchez Gordillo explained, because "someone has to do something so that families can eat."
The politician, who has been mayor of Marinaleda for 33 years and is also a deputy in the Andalusia regional government for the left-wing grouping United Left (IU), spent Wednesday on a Seville estate that belongs to the Ministry of Defense. Sánchez Gordillo and his supporters occupied the land just over two weeks ago.
While the media was there in force, given the furor over the supermarket thefts the day before, there was no sign of the authorities, despite the fact that the interior minister, Jorge Fernández Díaz, ordered the arrest of the perpetrators of the theft.
Sánchez Gordillo did not take part in the robbery of goods at the Mercadona supermarket in Écija, but was outside the store, directing the operation with the use of a megaphone. At the same time, the general secretary of SAT, Diego Cañamero, entered a Carrefour store. Each group took around a dozen shopping carts filled with sugar, oil, milk and other staples, and left without paying.
But no NGO had put out a request for the items, and food banks reported that they have sufficient supplies without having to resort to stolen goods.
Don't give the Occupy bunch any ideas.
He and a few others are facing criminal proceedings for this act,
they have also been condemned for it seeing how supermarkets in the area,
have been freely contributing money and items to help the poor.
You don't know spanish politics............. this man robe food .....
the president of cataluña( catalonia) be until 2008 a secret account in leitchestain and call bribers to all rest o0f spaniards
This man don't say anithing about the 4700 politicians in spain who cost 20.000.000.000 euros or the 26.000.000.000 euros who cost the autonomic state model or the 4000.000.000 to the trade unions or the reduccion of the eu comercial taxes to morroco , or basque concert.... they only search popularity and a charge in the junta
the same junta who pay the cocaine of their politics
In spain thousands of politics elude the jail........ a spanish politician never go to the jail.
Surely the above has NOTHING to do with him leading the robberiesThe politician, who has been mayor of Marinaleda for 33 years and is also a deputy in the Andalusia regional government
What a freak. He put himself above the law and should be punished accordingly! With that being said, a wholly different part of the story made me stop short..Did he tell his mobsters that he's effectively co-responsible for the crisis which is also a result of mismanagement and lavish spending on the behalf of the Spanish regional governments - who, for example, built 24 airports that have never even seen a plane?The politician, who has been mayor of Marinaleda for 33 years and is also a deputy in the Andalusia regional government
you want to have a political rant, with regards your claims, then open your own thread
however, in this specific case, the clown of a mayor was filmed in taking part in criminal activity,
ergo condemned by his own ego.
Meh, Social bandits and Southern Europe. Welcome back Spain we missed you. Oh you shoot robbers in the US? That is why the Fed is cruxifying Goldman Sachs and others...oh wait.
At one point criminal activities are the sign of sanity...
Dunno how i feel on this subject,we talking about a man who been mayor of Marinaleda for 33 years.
any info out there about how he spread the food & who to?.
The post be relevant, you don't know this man and their gestion in marinaleda... they live of eu, spanish goverment and junta subventions.....
AND NEED "TOMAKE THE CLOW" TO MANTAIN THEY....
this man don't be clown ..... it's a strategy who try to use the sat and this actions to obtain a position in the junta subventions, the trade unions and politics like gordillo try with that to hide the inmense cost of their charges
their party support to the psoe regional gouverment...... this act be unpunnised
If you really thing .......... who in spain a politic go to jail , you're a dreamer

Marinaleda is a relic of post-Franco Spain. Marinaleda is a self-administered less than 3000 strong hamlet with several pecularities.
One of them is the system of ownership. There be Commies. As for the immense cost. Well it has been quoted that each house costs in materials around 20K euros provied by the local junta.
Hardly an overburden compared to other white elephants.
