Even months after our first blog post on how to help refugees, the situation in Berlin is still a catastrophe. With freezing temperatures approaching, we decided to update our list on how to help refugees.
Whatever stance on migration you might have: it won't change the fact that more and more refugees are arriving in Berlin. What we need now is a system of support, empathy and practical help to get everything working flawlessly for everybody.
The 25th of May is the day were Berliners will be able to vote for or against building on the Tempelhofer Feld (along with the EU parliament, but that's for another niche blog to cover). As you may know, we think this is a very rare chance of being part of Berlins future. Since most people who have the right to vote are German, we decided to write an informative article of all the possible outcomes and the history of the Volksentscheid Tempelhof in German as well. You can scroll down for the English version if you're still interested.
Mayday mayhem: every year, the first of May is the dedicated kick-off of the legendary Berlin summer season. And what a kick-off it was: personally, I spent most of my time in a delirious state at the annual Luzia rave. But, lucky for me (and my partying), Martin roamed the streets and took plenty of beautiful pictures in busy Kreuzberg.
