After a long stretch on foot, the South-West column of EuroMarches reached Mérida. On arrival, an action took place at a big Aldi hypermarket, the German multinational, in which the ruination of the small shopping centres of the towns and cities was denounced where Aldi and other chains, such as Mercadona, Carrefour, and others are established: marginalisation of agro businesses in the locality and the imposition of big commercial networks that import products from far away, producing greenhouse gases leading to increasing climate change; and the exploitation of labour in precarious and unfair conditions.
To conclude, in a symbolic gesture of solidarity, the activists gave two boxes of sweets to the employees. On arrival in Mérida, EuroMarches was received by a Citizens Assembly promoted by Dignity Camps in which the socialist mayor participated alongside councillors and other elected representatives of Podemos and United Left. The assembly was marked by a high quality and varied participation of those people present.
