Long Live Barbara!


In Germany, 'Barbara Emme was fired for allegedly stealing 1.30 euros (£1.16) worth of bottle deposits from her employer, Kaisers supermarket, after more than 30 years of service.'

She was punished so harshly 'while bankers who have lost billions stay in their jobs.' - Pilfered euro sparks German row

Kaisers has admitted it has no proof that Barbara stole anything.

A state labour court in Berlin upheld the grocery chain's right to dismiss Barbara.

Wolfgang Thierse, a vice president of Germany's parliament, the Bundestag, called the ruling "barbaric."

Berlin's leading legal organization is calling on Thierse to resign.

Barbara suspects she was fired because of her union activity. - Supermarket Cashier Becomes German Anti-Capitalist Hero


Sack the judges!

Boycott Kaisers!

Kick out Angela Merkel!

This is a disgrace. I've just been reading a bit more about it in the German press. Once these crimi polizei get there teeth into something there's no letting go but who phoned the crimi lot in the first place?

Wouldn't have happened if she'd been of a certain religion would it.
