Basically there has been pretty much constant protesting in Stuttgart since my arrival on the 1st of September.
They (...the government...) want to destroy the park for an even bigger train station...presumably so they can increase industry and make more money.. think destroying the Stuttgart equivalent of Central Park, Hyde Park etc...
And the people are NOT happy.
|their on my college!|
So after a nice little practice sesh in college, I walked into one of these riots. See above and below.
|emm...how do I get home ?!|
Its a bit unnerving but none the less, a powerful sight to see the people come together and unite!
As I am a complete dope when it comes to speaking and reading German, I never know when the next protest/march/riot will take place...
I usually rely on seeing something like a police bike bombing it up the pedestrian walkway, men with guns, people jumping on cars etc...lol Although, the park is stunning and serene at night with little night-lights sitting peacefully on statues and trees.
