Care for a burger?Monday, September 17, 2007 at 4:41 | Posted in Germany, odd | Leave a comment
It seems to make news in Germany that McDonald’s have opened a franchise in the neigbourhood of Kreutzberg in Berlin, the first one in that area. The odd thing is that there are apparently people who bother to oppose McDonald’s, so much so that the police in full riot gear have set up a 24 hour surveillance in case there would be violent protests. However, the protests did not take place but the police are going to be around, just to be sure.
I wonder if it makes any sense to actually be on the spot. Could the police not just plant one of those governmental trojans in the computers of McWiderstand folks?
I have not had a hamburger for ages but if I happened to pass through Kreutzberg I might just go for it. It would be fun to have a Big Mac and observe a pointless police operation against a pointless protest action which does not even happen. Good for me that the police are not wasting my money but that of the German tax payers.
