Occupy Metzer Straße

Just now, as I was sitting in my room, I heard a blast of German reggae outside my window. I peeked out, and whaddaya know, an Occupy Berlin march was coming down my little street:
That sign translates to: “There has to be fun; there doesn’t have to be capitalism.”
There didn’t seem to be any risk of violence, as befell other German demonstrations this week, given the something like 2:1 ratio of police to occupiers. That, and the fact that you really just can’t fight to reggae.
