Spring Is In The Air Right Now

Here in Berlin. Just like the teargas will be tomorrow.

Demo

And if we’re really lucky, we’ll have a good old-fashioned senselessly violent “Antikapitalistischen Walpurgisnacht” (anti-capitalist Walpurgis Night) tonight, too!

So y’all have a wonderful German May Day celebration, ya-here (not established as a public holiday until 1933)?

In der Vergangenheit war es in Berlin in der Walpurgisnacht und am 1. Mai häufig zu gewalttätigen Ausschreitungen am Rand von Demonstrationen der linken Szene gekommen. In diesem Jahr wollen sowohl linke Gruppen als auch die NPD in Berlin demonstrieren.

Occupy Camp Frankfurt Was Not For Nothing

Or so we are told. The movement has now merely become “invisible.”

Not even the most vehement anti-capitalist protesters can believe, I mean live, in this Dreck (crap) forever.

That is why German Police have now put up barricades around Camp Occupy (next to the European Central Bank headquarters) and are helping to carry out the last remaining activists for reintegration into that heartless, bourgeois world of showers, warm meals/beds and regular working hours (or at least that is their sincere hope).

But the movement will live on or something, albeit in a new “invisible” form. And I only find this appropriate as the movement’s arguments have been invisible from day one.
