Hamburg, Germany - Last week, a group of left-wing superheros stormed a grocery store in Hamburg, stole 1500 euros worth of food, and vanished in the streets, leaving flowers for the cashiers. Afterwards, they redistributed the food among underpaid janitors at a university, day laborers, trainees at an advertising company, and parents and educators at a daycare. The police used 14 cars and a helicopter to find them, but had no luck.

A similar action happened last year on Mayday, when a group of masked activists stormed a 5-star restaurant and made off with the buffet. The action was covered in two pages of a popular local daily newspaper which failed to mention the Euromayday parade that happened afterwards, even though it had 3000 participants.
