Nearly 600 protesters gathered yesterday, Thursday 28th of March 2013, in front of the Rotes Rathaus in Berlin to continue the fight for the preservation of the East Side Gallery. Ploonge and Posi+tive Magazine were there to support the demonstration; here you can find the exclusive photos of the event.





In spite of earlier protests demanding the monument of the Cold War be preserved, last Wednesday before dawn some workers removed sections of a key remnant of the Berlin Wall protected by scores of German police officers. The removal came as a shock to residents, just as it did on Aug. 13, 1961, when the barrier was first built.


The East Side Gallery is a display of colorful murals created after the 1989 popular uprising in what was then Communist East Germany. One of the most famous sections features Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev kissing East German chief Erich Honecker, who built the Berlin Wall.
