Demos reloaded

Just got home, was in Mitte. We managed to get a beer and some food after work but left soon since the scenery started to fill up with anti G8 people and police everywhere. A helicopter was patrolling above Mitte all evening which did not exactly calm people down.

What started as a demo of literally 5 people grow to maybe 150 people at Hackischer Markt after an hour or two and there were way more by the time we left. Also the police soon started to reroute traffic around the entire area and blocked streets from various directions.

Update

P1010396 P1010395

Update II:
Reuters says there were 600 people all together – and mostly peacful! :-)
