This brief news clip is amusing, at least for those of us with a sardonic sense of humor. Under any other circumstances, the lefties of this illegal “squat” in Berlin would be out there protesting on behalf of the immigrants, proclaiming the migrants’ right to accommodation and sustenance at the expense of the German taxpayer. And maybe throwing a few paving stones and Molotov cocktails at the police whilst expressing their opinion.
But not this time. You see, the proposed asylum residence is planned for the very property where the Anarchist-Antifa types squat. That’s going too far! With the rallying cry of “Not in my backyard!” — and maybe a smoke bomb or two — they’ve been demonstrating in front of city hall against giving up their beloved abode.
|00:00||Refugees not so welcome. Normally the Lefties are right up there|
|00:04||at the front in Germany when it comes to demonstrations|
|00:08||for the rights of ‘refugees’. Here at the Kiefholzstrasse|
|00:12||in Berlin-Neukölln it is somewhat different. The property|
|00:16||you can see here in the background has been|
|00:20||occupied by Left-Alternatives Wagenburg residents without|
|00:24||residential contract and is now to be evacuated to make room for new|
|00:28||asylum accommodation. The property is a|
|00:32||8000 square meter facility where twenty residents|
|00:36||live under the name “Schwarzer Kanal” (Black Channel).|
|00:40||The residents, however, do not like these plans in the least, and|
|00:44||on Wednesday they demonstrated in front of the Neukölln town hall against|
|00:49||this evacuation. One of their arguments is that this is just|
|00:53||a pretext to evacuate the area. The [female] mayor|
|00:57||of Neukölln still hopes for a peaceful solution.
