Though looking all content in instagram user tigramgros’ picture (submit yours with the hashtag #linksinberlin!), Berlin has been a troublesome place this week: while parts of Kreuzberg 36 were occupied by police from all over Germany because of refugees occupying a school, Alexanderplatz was not so much occupied by crazy-cheap-shoppers for the opening of a certain new crazy-cheap-clothing-shop but by protesters and a counter-event promoting the use of second-hand-clothing with a trade party (thank you, Berliners). And then there’s Fashion Week coming up, which had to move to Wedding because the usual space is occupied by crazy-soccer-fans who want to watch the games while riding a ferris wheal and eating currywurst (seriously).
This is what happened on the blogs this week!
