Violence erupts in Germany as protesters defend cultural center

Germany Hamburg Riots

BERLIN (AP) - German police say 22 officers have been injured in clashes with protesters opposed to the eviction of a left-wing cultural center in the northern city of Hamburg.

More than 7,000 people demonstrated Saturday against the eviction of the Rote Flora center, a squatted former theater in the city's Schanzenviertel area.

Hamburg police said some of the protesters began hurling objects at the 2,000 officers shortly after the demonstration began.

They said an unspecified number of protesters were also injured.

Some should be careful what they wish for. I'm wondering how many people in Syria would rethink the actions of three years ago, if they knew what then what was to come? Squaters should not expect to keep what they have taken.

Well if you wish hard enough you usually get it or a tad of it. Problem is it does not come the way you want and it takes time for you to realize, Hey I got what I wished for.

Nor should Governments expect to keep what they have taken from the people but that has not stopped them from trying.

Once again the ONLY time the US media ever mentions another country is when there is some isolated conflict or tragedy. Most Americans imagine this is normal for the news. It isn't. This is how propaganda works. It isn't about telling lies. It is about carefully selecting truths and ignoring everything else going on around.

A coincidental cadre of worldwide bureaucrats, like unto the most popular kids in high school, have taken over the levers of power in the so-called "Western Democracies". These "enlightened" bureaucrats are devoid of belief, other than the belief in maintaining power and control. Liberty and freedom can be now sacrificed, according to their shared morals of public expediency, media facileness and smooth resolution of occasional protest of government overreach. They support each other to the point that the people are no longer truly represented in government "by the people."

Where is the rest of this story? These so-called articles lack any substantive information.

Hey AOL, this may come as a surprise but there are those of us who care more about real world news than celebrity nonsense. And I'm sick of Huffington post with their sensationalized headlines trying to entice us to click. I don't click, but google the info elsewhere.
