  1. Hey, your police are as nice as ours! Last year they used water cannons against peaceful demonstrators who wanted to prevent the new Stuttgart main station project (newspaper article – warning, it’s graphic). Such news make me angry beyond words.

  2. Good lord, Anke! What is wrong with people? I can understand arresting people for breaking the law, but people suspected of terrorism get better treatment than this!

  3. I really don’t know why some people overreact this way. But I do know that I’m happy about the Occupy movement. It’s important for every society to stand up for their rights, no matter what some so-called authorities try to do against it.
