Post Titled: Kreuzberg Represent

Pat sent me this piece from the Guardian:
"McDonald's - will soon join the mix and the arrival of the fast-food giant is causing consternation in Kreuzberg, for decades a stronghold of left-wing, anarchist and anti-globalist sentiment.

Police on Saturday barred a small demonstration against the restaurant that they said had no permit, organized by a citizens' initiative under the German name McWiderstand, or ``McResistance.'' Several demonstrators in Ronald McDonald wigs nonetheless managed to sneak through a construction barrier and put up a banner decrying the restaurant.

The site's fence already is smeared with obscene anti-McDonald's graffiti, and the company has hired security guards to watch over it. "
