“We are surprised and euphoric. […] We are glad to provide people from China with a platform for protests in this way.”

Carsten Hein, project coordinator with Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH, host of the Berlin Twitter Wall, on Monday.

Predictably, by Monday evening local time, the Berlin Twitter Wall was no longer accessible in Beijing.

  1. This was a very brief entry by yourself, but I found it quite helpful. The MacKinnon article and somehow to Berliner Morgenpost. Would be interested to know how the rest of German press picks up this GFW story, as I haven’t check Suddeutscher Zeitung or Der Spiegel, shamefully so, in a couple of weeks!


  2. The press in Berlin and Brandenburg covered it – but you wouldn’t find a lot about it in the Sueddeutsche, Der Spiegel, or Die Welt yet. The Berliners like the attention, of course!
