Day 26. Berlin. Two sites have been occupied and held overnight in Berlin: at #PotsdamerPlatz and #Siegessäule. I hope to visit them both this morning. Meanwhile, here’s a piece from @guardian on how @ExtinctionR is changing climate culture.

2/ Weather may be on side of police today. Cold, dreary, wet. Though Nordic blockade at #Siegessäule has had breakfast and is dancing Lindyhop in the rain. Not sure I will arrive before arrests begin. Police have evicted #PotsdamerPlatz. #BerlinBlockade #BerlinBlockieren
