The Checkpoint Charlie Monument consisting of over 1,000 crosses commemorating those killed by the East German Communist regime during the Cold War is scheduled to be bulldozed in the early morning hours of July 5th in Berlin.
To show our support for the Monument at Checkpoint Charlie and to protest its planned destruction, we are encouraging everyone to converge on Checkpoint Charlie in downtown Berlin this Sunday, July 3rd at 15 Uhr (3PM).
Participants will also have the opportunity to sign a special photo montage at the monument. Food and drink will be available afterwards (we believe for a modest fee) at a barbeque in Berlin Mitte starting at 17:00 (5 PM).
Those wishing to help organizers pass out flyers to promote the event at Potsdamer Platz, Brandenburger Tor and Alexander Platz are asked to arrive at the at Checkpoint Charlie at 10 AM on Sunday in front of the Berlin Wall installation on the west side of Friedrichstrasse. Please RSVP with the organizers by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
