CAMPAIGNERS with This is Rigged have set up a stall of stolen baby formula on Buchanan Street in Glasgow.

It comes as the group demands supermarkets slash the prices of baby formula to March 2021 prices and that the Scottish Government implement a community food hub per every 500 households in Scotland.

The latest action follows a series of protests in February, including when protesters targeted the UK Government offices in Edinburgh.

The group are set up in Glasgow City Centre with a sign that reads: “We stole this baby formula – happy Mother’s Day from This is Rigged”.

Protesters say they want to draw the attention to the stark increases in the prices of essential goods – specifically baby products such as formula.

In a statement released on social media, the group explained their actions by saying: “We are asking for the bare minimum – our inalienable human right to baseline food security – but we are also asking for dignity.

“No longer will we beg for scraps from the tables of greedy CEOs. No longer will we be at the mercy of corporations who price us out of eating on a whim, dependent on them to provide us with our foundational needs.

“No longer will we tolerate a criminally incompetent government that refuses to address the crisis of food insecurity in this country.”

One of the group’s members, 25-year-old intensive care nurse Rhona said she was taking action because she sees directly how people are impacted by food insecurity.

“As a nurse, I see the effects of our government’s austerity measures on a daily basis. For supermarkets to be pushing their prices up while people are struggling to afford to eat is a disgrace,” she said.

Retired teacher Kate, 69, said: “I think it is important to show how appalled I am about what the government is not doing to combat this crisis.

“We want to spread awareness of this issue and highlight how the food redistribution that we are doing should not be necessary.

“And based on conversations today – the people of Glasgow agree.”
