soooooo, the protest against the next security conference in munich is over. the security conference (MSC) or military science conference which is its former name (~ wehrkundetagung, sicherheitskonferenz / SiKo) is an event where the military complex meets politics and where the west plans its wars of aggression. just read the names of the attendees (stoltenberg, netanjahu, guterres, mattis, poroschenko, kagame and many, many heads of governments, NATO, intelligence agencies like CIA and MOSSAD, foreign ministers, 'defense' ministers, the weapon industry and many more here)
we are many thousands activists in the streets against this war supporting and thus refugees creating event, you know? let's stop NATO, let's stop WAR.
enjoy few pictures:
me, preparing for the demo :-)

hmmm, why is besides the North Atlantic Terror Organization (NATO) also BMW the logo for war? even if among many others BMW also sponsors the munich war conference, krauss maffei or rheinmetall or EADS would be more suitable, if you asked me ...
there were many kurdish protesters ... and many from congo / ruanda as well
our ignorance is maybe the reason why also (western) wars of aggression work :-(

well, i do quite often visit my ailing mother in bratislava / slovakia. if you asked me, she is fine, still physically strong, easy to make happy - it is enough to walk with her for a while or to go to a coffee shop and order a coffee :-)
i'm so thankful my youngest brother and his wife take care of her. it a really good feeling to know she is fine ...
what about bratislava? well, it is so great that i always manage to visit some interesting place i have never before and yes, i can also often meet few friends here

main square in augsburg with town hall (rathaus) and the perlach tower
of course, we welcomed the chance to visit this old, old, old city (2,033 years old as founded in 15 b.C.), which is the 3rd biggest in bavaria after munich and nuremberg. augsburg is part of the bavarian disrict schwaben / swabia. unlike today, swabia was a huge historic territory in medieval southwest germany before.
the most important part of its history is bonded to the fugger family, who were probably the richest people on earth in 15th &16th century.
augsburg, ulrichskirche + basilika st. ulrich und afra
fuggerei, the oldest social estate was provided by the fuggers
air strikes bunker from WWII
time for lunch in town hall's cellar. there were many peaceful fans of FC eintracht frankfurt waiting for the bundesliga match against FC augsburg
perlach tower (perlachturm) + ratskeller restaurant
good-bye, augsburgmore pictures here (probably too many)
