Protest against gentrification and rising rents

Demonstrators walk through the Karl-Marx-Allee street as they protest against gentrification and rising rents on Saturday at Berlin in Germany. Tens of thousands of people were poised to join marches against “rental insanity” (Mietwahnsinn) in cities like Berlin, Munich, Cologne and Frankfurt am Main. A wave of gentrification and rising rents is provoking rising anger and leading some to even ponder radical solutions like expropriating housing from institutional landlords.    -AFP PHOTO
