Clothes company pulls from stores T-shirt homage to radical politician

MADRID--A clothes designer owned by Swedish chain H&M pulled from stores a T-shirt paying homage to a radical Spanish politician who backed Robin Hood-style looting of supermarkets, the company said Monday.

The Weekday brand owned by H&M, a popular high street budget fashion store, had released a small line of T-shirts bearing the slogan "Food to the Poor. No world hunger," followed by the politician's name: Juan Manuel Sanchez Gordillo.

Sanchez, mayor of the village of Marinaleda in Andalucia, has become a controversial cult figure after he endorsed the looting of two supermarkets last month by activists who gave out the food to the needy.
