Demonstration “Freedom not Fear 2010 – stop surveillance mania!”
I was today on the demonstration „Freiheit statt Angst“ (Freedom not Fear) in Berlin with approx. 15.000 other people, friends and comrades. It was a very peaceful and coloful demonstration against th increased surveillance in Germany following the 9-11 attacks in the U.S.A.
