Mediaspree Demonstration Tomorrow! Be There Or Be Square!

The annual demo against Mediaspree is tomorrow, starting at Warschauer Strasse U/S-Bahn at 14:00. In case you are new to Berlin, Mediaspree is the development project which is threatening all Spreeside clubs. It has already been responsible for the closure of 'legendary' club Bar 25 and local favourite Kiki Blofeld, and it is currently endangering all riverside clubs from Jannovitzbr├╝cke to Ostkreuz (the stretch of river where many of Berlin's best  & most popular venues are located).

In a public referendum on the project, more than 80 percent of Kreuzberg/Friedrichshain residents rejected it. The annual demonstration is a reiteration of Berlin's opposition to Mediaspree,which is being pushed ahead regardless of public opinion. When completed, Mediaspree will restrict access to the river, close clubs and raise living costs for the entire area with fast-tracked gentrification. So if you live in Berlin or just love partying here, come along!
