Solidarity with AZ #Cologne: #RabAZ!

The exploitation interests of an unbridled financial market in the city of Cologne are the cause of this distribution of primarily left, self-managed open spaces from the cityscape of Cologne. These mostly noncommercial spaces, which do not bring big money to anyone but much more bring people together, should go away.
