Germany: Protesters rally to save Berlin's WWII airport site

Hundreds of people flocked to Tempelhof Field in Berlin on Sunday to protest against plans to build 5,000 houses on the site of the former airport.

Protesters brought candles, glo-sticks and toiletbrushes to the airfield, which is currently being used as a recreational area for residents.. The toilet brush has became the symbol for ongoing protests against the 'danger zone' in Hamburg, and is now being adopted by protesters nation-wide.

Action group 'Initiative 100% Tempelhofer Feld' aims to raise enough signatures to halt construction plans so that a referendum will be held to allow Berliners to decide what to do with the site. The organisation has until January 13 to raise 174,000 signatures.
