Riager Starsse Berlin

Under Siege

The past few days in Berlin felt like a Battle. The Rigger Strasse protests show a city not managing gentrification well. On one side, the police, on the other, protesters.  The clashes went on day and night. 

At Times It Felt A Battle 

The city had a Donald Trump attitude flexing its muscle. Police from all over Germany arrived to reinforce local patrols. It felt like an occupation. 

During this time of the operation, Berlin  became a Covid Hotspot. Perhaps this was not the best time for a mass operation to evict 40 people from a building.
