In other workd news...


German police said more than 120 officers were injured and 86 demonstrators were detained during leftist riots in the German capital which police called "the most aggressive and violent protests in the last five years".

Berlin police said in a statement on Sunday that protesters destroyed cars and attacked officers, throwing bottles, cobblestones and fireworks. Only one of the police officers required treatment at a hospital. It was not immediately clear how many rioters were injured.

About 3,500 protesters participated in the rallies, which started on Saturday evening and lasted until early on Sunday.

Activists had called for the demonstration to protest against police operations at buildings taken over by squatters in the eastern part of the city last month.

Protests against "police operations" against squatters.

Calling it a street battle. Interesting how little video thee seems to be of this. As the dude in the video says, some countries crack down harder.

Seems the football riots made more news.Also, I don't agree with his final comment in the video about "ultimately this is what they are trying to bring to America."

People protest what they hold strong beliefs about and sometimes those protests go sideways. It's been that way throughout the world and throughout history.

ETA: Found another video.


Violence erupted between police and left-wing activists after around 7,000 people joined together to rally against the eviction of Berlin's legendary left-wing squat in Friedrichshain, Germany. Multiple arrests have been made

So every protester got about half a police officer.

(There were 1800 officers and 3500 protesters. I found that...interesting.)

The saddest thing about what you just said is that the pot doesn't have to boil over. The people actually do have the power if they could just unite. But forces are keeping them apart, divided.

I guess they'll find some way to blame BLM for this too.

Hahahah "Leftist Squatter". I worked with a few of these in the USA, They said their dream was traveling the USA. When they need money for gas and food they just stand on a corner with a sign asking for it. They genuinely believed they deserved it. They thought humans should give them their lives and contribute nothing back. Really weird people. They never lasted on the job for long.

And the bolded part is the key . At least the Germans call it as it is.....and that is all it is. Especially in this country.
