Residents in Spain have an answer for Starbucks’ company officials who announced plans to hire 10,000 refugees from mostly Muslim communities – and if a picture says 1,000 words, this message is a volume.

Starbucks has faced widespread fire over its announced plan to hire 10,000 refugees from mostly Muslim nations.

As the Bare and Naked Islam blog reported: The Starbucks stores in Madrid were made over with stickers that showed the female figure at the center of the company logo as a burka-clad woman.

A new look for Starbucks? Critics of the coffee company have a message for executives, and it’s coming in the way of stickers placed on cafe windows all over Madrid.

From the blog:

“All the Starbucks branches in Madrid have been redubbed ‘STARBURKA REFUGEES’ in a mass sticker protest action against that company’s decision to employ 10,000 Muslim invaders posing as refugees—while unemployment in Spain is over 20 percent.

“The protest action, carried out by Spanish nationalist activists Hogar Social Madrid (HSM), saw activists print up ultra-sticky full size stickers to replace existing store signage, made up in imitation of the Starbucks logo, and plaster the company’s branches throughout the city overnight.

“A statement released by HSM on their Facebook page said that the action had been carried out to ‘protest the recruitment by the Starbucks chain of 10,000 refugees, while in Spain, unemployment is over 20 percent.’

“The statement went on to point out that while Starbucks in Spain is highly financially profitable, the profits are never put back into Spanish society.

“‘The [ruling] elites generate conflicts in other parts of the planet, and in turn produce waves of cheap labor which degrades the whole of Spanish society by reducing employability and wealth in our country . . . they degrade whatever gains are made by European workers who have sacrificed so much for decades, taking advantage of the fact that the majority of ‘immigrants’ are devoid of conscience and of the fight for workers’ rights.’

“Instead, the HSM statement said, the pro-invasion policy is presented as ‘false solidarity which repeats the mantra of political correctness, with its ‘refugees welcome’ approach being used to morally justify’ the exploitation of the workers.”

In America, Starbucks faced similar outrage over its announcement to hire 10,000 refugees, with critics asking why the company wouldn’t extend the offer to U.S. veterans.
