I’m not quite sure what to say about this photo, except that it shows some underlying thinking in Munich. This is not a place where people generally speak out against the establishment – at least not publicly. This certainly is not France, where labor unions are amazingly powerful – to the point where many businesses struggle to operate as unions regularly go on strike. Also unlike the French, you don’t have these wide spread strikes in the public sector – crippling transportation. Instead, you get more protests like this – as pictured in the University district – one that is behind the scenes and not where anyone has to come face-to-face with anyone else. The one exception I can think of lately was also in the University district – where students took over part of the campus.
