Javan (affiliated with the IRGC) ran an editorial titled, “Should We Abstain From Buying Bread or Junk Foreign Goods?!” The editorial questions the logic of the new “wave” on the Internet and social networks, in which people are urged to abstain from buying bread and milk for three days in hopes of achieving price reductions. The author stated that bread and milk prices increased, because the cost of production increased after the implementation of the targeted subsidies plan. He added, “It is impossible for producers to reduce prices.” He said that instead of boycotting bread and milk, which are locally produced, the people should stop buying “junk and smuggled foreign goods” in order to support local production.
