100% Tempelhofer Feld
Once upon a time there was an enchanted kingdom, known throughout all the land for it's cultural diversity and it's ability to attract people from near and far, regardless of their social status, age or ethnicity. A place where perfect strangers were treated as equals: invited to share their ideas and participate in a growing community of talented artists, musicians, performers and dreamers. A place where being a citizen meant being an individual. More than anything, it meant being yourself. Part of the magnetic attraction was this very diversity, accentuated in part by numerous free zones where people could get together and celebrate life, leaving their worries and the struggle of big city living behind them for a moment.
Until one day, the powers that be, decided it was in their best interest to place more value on the individual well-being of the upper class than the collective welfare of the common folk. Since then, these free zones have become an endangered species, gradually giving way to high-rises, expansive shopping centers and an endless sea of concrete, ultimately turning the once fertile fields of green into a monotonous desert of grey...
At this very moment the future of our great city is at stake. The fields of the former Tempelhof airport belong to the people of the city, and that's how we would like to keep it. This may seem like a trivial matter to some, but please, ask yourself, where will all of this end? It's time for the good people to unite, to raise our common voice and declare, "not here, not now."
Regardless of what may happen after the state's decision on Sunday, and in the years to come, we would like to show our solidarity with the initiative 100% Tempelhofer Feld, and anyone struggling to maintain so-called "free zones" - places where people can find strength in their individuality and break free from the constraints of a capital-driven society, thereby manifesting their own creative potential.
So if you would like to join us in our struggle for freedom, come to the Tempelhofer Feld this Saturday and look for the bicycle driven sound system and a colorful bunch who are interested in preserving something they believe in. Help us spread the word, sound and power, from the mid-day sun until the darkest hour.
On Sunday, the 25th of May, 2014, the future of our beloved field - with it's communal gardens, recreational facilities, and collected memories of countless days spent in the sun with family and friends - will be decided. We don't want it to become another victim of the system: 100% Tempelhofer Feld. For everyone. Raise your voice. The choice is (y)ours.
