I never took part in the May Day shenanigans that happen every year in Kreuzberg. This year though my dear colleagues wanted to witness the great commercialisation of a traditionally left wing protest. They headed for Oranienplatz and the surrounding area, and I joined them after a very late breakfast at around 2 pm. This is our story.
Even though the mobile internet network crashed I managed to find the others and we then settled down in the amphitheatre in the Görlitzer Park.
