Welcome to dystopia

Wuppertal. Germany. In the night of July 14th to 15th, the alarm sirens howled over Wuppertal. Howling sirens, a memory of the monthly exercises during the Cold War in the Netherlands. But this time it was not an exercise. A few fragmented thoughts written down during a night of emergency in Wuppertal.

Wuppertal, Germany: Autonomous May Day demonstration in Oberbarmen district sets colorful accents [Report and video]

Wuppertal. Germany. Punctually at the start of the curfew at 10 p.m. on April 21, a small but determined spontaneous demo moved with smoke and fireworks in the Ölberg district in Wuppertal. Residents were informed with speeches about the critique against the curfew. Barricades were erected and the Ölberg district was covered in smoke with all colors of the rainbow. Unfortunately, we did not manage to block all the streets and the pigs found a way to spread out quite fast in the Ölberg district. We also did not manage to go into direct confrontation. Hopefully, a collective learning process has developed and we will manage to chase the pigs out of Ölberg in such situations in the future. Before the demo dispersed at Otto-Böhne-Platz, however, the adjacent Marien41 was covered with paint.
