The Mayor of Berlin Michael Müller and his Social Democratic Party, who currently form a governing coalition with two other left wing parties in the German capital, continue with their plans to transform the Berlin Olympic Stadium into a pure football arena. Cooperating with local first division club Hertha BSC their scandalous intention is to get rid of athletics. One of the world’s most iconic athletics arenas would be lost for the sport. Additionally it would cause the demise of the final fortress of German athletics. A massive protest is developing against these reckless plans.
