So Angela Merkel (and lot's of other important people) here in Weimar today, funniest story is through that our local autonomous youth centre (Gerberstraße - the oldest in east germany) were there today with a poster that read: "Thank you Merkel for the heating!

In the early 90ies (93?) Merkel visited a lot of german youth centres - she was social affairs minister at that time - and when visiting Weimar, she gave money for a new underfloor heating (or helped or whatever, who knows :)

@mt are you sure that the transparent is not about the fact that Ms. Merkel is protecting and keeping coal as source of energy till 2038?

@the_halmaturus I'm pretty sure - the underfloor heating story is real, people involved with them also mentioned it.

@the_halmaturus @mt it's definitely about the heating. they had that picture behind the bar for a long time, it's been a running joke for years. i mean, it's the most absurd story - you visit an anarchist squat with bricked up windows, and inside some crusty old punk tells you about the time angela merkel visited, paid for their new heating system, and told them to keep up the good work. 😆
