How to create turmoil

Take the following ingredients:
– 30 people demonstrating against something
– 20 press fotographers and tv people
– some 40 bystanders
– and, not to forget: 8 police vans and some 50 policemen.

Add this to the Kreuzberg intersection of Adalbertstrasse and Oranienstrasse and you have a nice afternoon traffic jam. Heck, I couldn’t even figure out what they were demonstrating for or against, their transparents were just too small. It looked like a useless cause anyhow.

Sorry for the bad picture quality, had to take it with the cameraphone off the scooter.

Addition: So this is what happened, I understand!

    Ok, I heard it was a rather spontaneus anti-Beckstein rally. He met some CDU/CSU Turkish delegate at some cafe in Oranienstrasse. So when people noticed him, there were like 400 after a few minutes, and a lot of police men too.

    And you were right in the middle of it. ;)
