I’ve always kept away from demonstrations before, but I decided to give this one my support.

Our local supermarket has been charging too much for years. It’s part of a chain, but they manage to charge higher prices by using different names. So the prices in Supersal Deal in a neighbourhood not so far away are much lower than the prices in our Supersal Sheli.

The management give reasons for these differences, but it’s clear that the real reason is that our Supersal has no competition. Also the population of our neighbourhood includes a lot of old people, who are unable to travel far to buy food.

Several of them came to the demonstration.

So did groups of young people who shouted out the slogans.

Placards were displayed.

Someone stood outside the supermarket telling people not to go in, or to buy the bare minimum.

The Arab woman sold her wares as usual, unperturbed.

And Michael & Shimrit Greilsammer, a well-known duo, sang and played.

I hope Supersal agree to lower their prices.
