(BBC.com)-Police in Berlin say 123 officers were injured in clashes with leftist protesters over the redevelopment of a district in the east of the city........................

Tensions have risen since moves began in June to evict squatters in the area. Friedrichshain has undergone rapid gentrification in recent years.About 1,800 police were deployed at the protest, which began peacefully but escalated into violence. Eighty-six people were arrested, police said.

Seems to be the order of the day throughout the world.

Strange days....

It almost feels like, we are many, they are few. Not quite, but almost.

I never heard of a protest of squatters that didn't end in riots.

Do we need to guess?

Does it matter?

I'm going with it being universal.

It's what happens when people get fed up and try to fight back.

Doesn't matter if its in America or Berlin or even OZ.

It absolutely does matter.

If your house has snakes in it does it make a difference if it's garter snakes or cobras?

Yes.

Yes.


You're missing one key element.

Humans aren't snakes. Bit more complex than a simple metaphor.

Very relevant for a true understanding on what is going on. Germany like Obama doesn't want to name their enemy.

Topic has absolutely nothing to do with *OBAMA* and "enemies."

To be honest, I am glad I live in a "gentrified" area. Squatters can be a real pain. Living a life of "me, me, me".

I guess no one here looking to identify the rioters by race and religion has heard of the 1st of May festivities/riots.

Which (imo) isn't relevant to the topic. Neither are my comments now, either.

The current leaderships are the greatest enemy to their respective nations in my opinion. We the people don't finance terrorist organizations going back decades, whilst continuing an ongoing perpetual war with the "enemies." Governments, however...

So do you think it is helpful to understand a situation if information indicates a social demographic is mostly (or not) responsible.
I think such information is useful to devise ways to make things better for everyone.

Yes, but these days a "simple metaphor" DOES sum up the harsh realities of oil and water NOT mixing. Or is this too an oversimplified metaphor? We ALL know it, so what's the problem with that? No one wants to get bitten by a cobra, nor drowned in oil and water that's constantly being sloshed around to meet someone's agenda. IF there even is an agenda, especially one with an expiration date drawing ever nearer, because all of this is getting OLD.

I can answer that. I used to live across the river near Friedrichshain.

Regarding Religions - the Communist and Socialist types of Antifa in the radical left-wing-scene & occupied houses are traditionally mostly Atheists or Agnostics, while the Anarchist/Minarchist parts are also partly Christian and other Religions.

Nationalities vary alot. Mostly Germans and people from all over Europe (Brits, French, Spaniards, Italians) and the whole world really.

Race is 99.9% Human (Homo sapiens)
*we've been cutting back on the whole "Race" thing since 1945 you know. You best ask your "great generation" why that is.
