A great step is taken by a German supermarket in Hamburg and they made a very public point about racism. You want to know what they did, they remove all the foreign goods from their shelves.
The customers who shop at this store when visited into Edeka’s Hamburg they saw that non-German goods are replaced and a sign is written over there which is “our range now knows borders” and “this shelf is pretty boring without diversity.”
One of the shopper compared this amazing scene with one of the supermarkets from communist Cuba. And another customer showed the video with stagy effect on the shelves.
This step by the German supermarket was taken after the migrant-related crime which was increasing in the recent months.
Edeka is one of the largest supermarket chains in Germany. And now this store took the responsibility to cover other stores under this initiative.
A supermarket spokesman said: “Edeka stands for variety and diversity. In our stores, we sell numerous foods which are produced in the various regions of Germany. But only together with products from other countries is it possible to create the unique variety, that our customers value.”
He further said, “We are pleased that our campaign caused so many positive reactions.”
This move by the supermarket faced mixed reaction from the politicians of the country. But a senior member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s political party called this decision of the German supermarket a “wise move.” She appreciated this step by the supermarket.
This Chancellor wish is to bring in hard extradition rules and regulation so she did not as the step away from the open migration plans. For allowing over a million refugees from the Middle East into Germany she is the lady who has been strongly criticized.
From anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany party’s Marcus Pretzell criticized the supermarket step and said: “Why exactly should it be wise? Is it not rather completely mad?”
So, some of the people and politicians said it is the great step and some of them are against this initiative. Now, time will show that it is the positive step or the negative step.
