Fuck the the law, hail to the legal system!
We go to supermarkets to steal and pay directly to the producers' unions. Because there are no right products in the wrong economic system.
Those who shop at the big discounters no longer need to have a guilty conscience. Instead of getting involved with the supermarket chains, you can simply steal wine, orange juice, chocolate, tea, coffee, coffee, flowers and tomatoes and send the money saved to the producers’ unions in just a few clicks. Here is the website: deutschlandgehenklauen. de
Thus, the money will no longer go to the big discounters Aldi, Rewe, Edeka and the Schwarz Group (Lild/Kaufland), who are robbing people of their basic rights in a highly organized manner.
We all know by now that prices are only so cheap because the legal gaps in global production chains are being systematically exploited and the workers on the plantations have to forego labour rights for our good and cheap food. The seals and symbols on the packaging are almost all eyewashes, hardly any of them withstand the test. Its a slap in the face to all the children who are enslaved in chocolate production all over the world when Aldi writes on the packaging that they are seriously involved and to all they can to help those kids. Rewe abuses our trust when they advertise that it is “local”, while selling tomatoes picked by migrants without labour rights. We enjoy our food, others pay the price for it.
Politics doesn't have the guts
We need a law with which we can sue companies in Germany if they make modern slavery their business model. Companies’ voluntary commitment has never worked before: for more than ten years now, they have only been making videos of laughing children who are allegedly allowed to go to school. And as long as there is no law, supermarkets whos business model does not rely on exploitation have a competitive disadvantage. If it is obligatory for all, no one has a disadvantage.
But politicians are afraid to do so because the increase in prices is not good for the voters mood. Companies send their lobbyists into the political ring to stop any such efforts. And the few NGOs working on it are simply not powerful enough. The result is a “National Action Plan for Economics and Human Rights”, in which the few people who had hope now despair. A drama of lobbyism that shows politics from its worst side – everything is geared towards further watering down the process.
To this end, the Federal Government is investing a good deal of money in an advertising campaign that is intended to act as an opiate for our conscience:”We take all this very seriously” is what the large posters and the website Wirtschaft minus Menschenrechte dot De suggest.
This is what the plan looks like at the moment: If 50% of the big companies are based on modern slavery and the other 50% can explain why they can’t do otherwise, everything remains the same. Nobody knows exactly how this is checked, but it is clear that as a company you only have to participate voluntarily in the random samples. If it turns out that more than 50% of all voluntarily audited companies have not improved anything and have no excuse, one will consider whether it is possible to write a law. The National Action Plan is a farce.
And it is said again and again that the causes of migration are to be combated in the countries of origin. This would be an opportunity where the government has a simple game to play: in the country of origin of the causes of migration – Germany. A legislative proposal and a feasibility study on human rights due diligence for companies has already been written. What’s missing is the political will.
We support the plantation workers temporarily.
We are working on this campaign with eight different trade unions and NGOs in the global South, which we present on the website deutschlandgehenklauen. de.
After the campaign has started, we will successively update this site. Until then, have fun stealing!
