Berlin’s Interior Senator Iris Spranger (SPD) must continue to deal with protests against the planned police station at Kottbusser Tor in Kreuzberg. Under the title “Don’t leave Spranger’s show undisturbed,” a left-wing radical initiative wants to disrupt a “political dinner” of the Berlin economic talks with Spranger on Tuesday evening.
The event in a hotel to align domestic policy shows that planning for the police station is not about the interests and needs of local residents, the announcement said. Indirectly, eggs are being thrown, as was recently the case with the Governing Mayor Franziska Giffey (SPD).

Spranger wanted to get an idea of the situation at Kottbusser Tor on Monday. Before that, she wanted to visit the police station that was built a few years ago on Alexanderplatz. She had emphasized several times that the so-called Kottiwache should be finished in early 2023, despite resistance from the left and radical left scene in Kreuzberg.
