New section "Cancel the Castle!" founded - Demonstration Oct 17th um 3pm at Schlossplatz Berlin
Join us at the Schlossplatz for a protest action against the Stadtschloss on Saturday October 17 at 3pm.
- Because the Stadtschloss is unnecessary: We already have enough unused buildings in Berlin, so there's no need to build more. The institutions, museums and libraries that may eventually be housed in the Stadtschloss can easily be accommodated elsewhere in the city for much less money.
What should be build there instead?
Nothing! The Stadtschloss should remain how it currently is - a picturesque empty green space for the citizens of the city to enjoy.
What should be done with the money?
Lots can be done with half a billion euros: Berlin doesn't have a properly working S-Bahn system. Many of its citizens are unemployed due to the lack of sustainable industries here. There is an endless list of projects that could be funded with this money. We don't claim to advocate on behalf of any alternative project, but wish simply to say that spending money on an unnecessary castle in the middle of a financial crisis is a stupid idea.
