Opposition growing against Stuttgart 21, nuclear power and cuts. Opinion poll shows – Germany is in a state of political crisis

“Democracy is sometimes a little bit difficult“, said the mayor of Stuttgart, facing a mass movement against the railway project, ‘Stuttgart21’.

5 days after the announcement of an austerity package by the conservative-liberal coalition in Germany 45,000 workers, unemployed and young people took to the streets of Berlin and Stuttgart to say: we won’t pay for your crisis!

On 9 June, 85,000 school, university, and apprenticeship students went on strike against cuts in education, tuition fees and increasing pressure to "perform" in education.
