walpurgisnacht kreuzberg II by SimonSawSunlight walpurgisnacht kreuzberg II by SimonSawSunlight
berlin
more than a whole police unit tries to put out a fire, and every little torch they can find, in the midst of a non-violent crowd for 'security' reasons.
they put out the music as well.
they mounted a bright halogen bulb balloon instead, so they could see people's faces and hands.

What a pity, i always wished to participate to one Walpurgis Night. But it doesn't make much sense without bonfires...

this wasn't a typical walpurgis anyway. on the kreuzberg in berlin they rather celebrate hitler's death than any old european tradition ;)

That's sick. Same here in Italy with fascism, we'll never take rid of that.

why is that sick? don't get me wrong, they celebrate his DEATH not in a "remember the führer"-way but in a "yay that fucker died"-way.
it's not like in italy where you can buy mussolini fan merchandise ;)

Ah, sorry, i tend to consider death celebrations as something positive toward the dead person, hence my feeling of sickness in celebrating Hitler's death.
It's a great shame allowing that Mussolini stuff, there's a law about fascism apology, so it's an offense, but -obviously- no one cares.
Anyway i heard that in Berlin there's a lot of Neo-Nazi skinheads or at least some quarters full of them, isn't so?

no. there are neo-nazis but not that much. if you have nazi-demonstrations with 300-500 participants, there's usually an unofficial counter-demonstration with at least twice as many people.
it's tough to be a nazi around here :D of course there are some, but I think germany's extreme-right is a bit weaker than in most other european countries, but it's better known.
