Wow, I've never seen that much police in the city (Berlin)
Almost unsettling: everywhere I go police, police, police. Most in normal uniforms, a few in riot gear, even less with heavy firearms. It is almost impossible to go anywhere without a good reason, whole areas are sealed off. Technically I should feel well protected, but... :scared: .
Too many events these days:
-Zapatero visit
-Powell visit
-Katzav visit
-international Anti-Semitism Conference
-traditional Mayday riots (remind me to park the car in a guarded garage)
-EU enlargement festivities
...

2. have you ever seen Mayday in Berlin?
Riots with burning cars and barricades, street battles and massive damage to public property. It is not a good day to be in Berlin, even with police from all over the federation helping out.

This year it is *way* more police than usual; snipers on the roofs etc. are definitely not normal.
I've read it's the largest German police operation ever.
