Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suppose I should add that our neighborhood initiative was ultimately able to carry its point (preventing construction on a green space) in June with the support of SPD and CDU, and against opposition from the Greens. When we started this 2 years ago, we anticipated that the Greens would be our natural allies in preserving urban green space. Instead, they were the party that most adamantly insisted on construction (which may or may not have something to do with the fact that the head of the local Greens is on the board of the municipal corporation seeking to "develop" the green space).

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
