Feeling aggrieved about the way a company operates is fair enough.
It still doesn't justify your support of people who steal. It's not a case of striking a blow for the oppressed or making a political statement. For example, here in Northern Ireland there are hundreds of paramilitaries in prison because they killed people. But they maintain that because it was a political act of war it was justified, and they are wrongly convicted. Don't try to say these people, who chose to take the action they did, are the victims. There are basics of wrong and right, and two wrongs don't make a right.
If you think McDonald's are so bad for exploiting their customers / workers are you not stooping to the same level by condoning what you consider a similar act ?
