beat the east! fight for the better part of the city!
Dear friends and neighbours!
Kreuzberg needs Schöneberg!
The victory is ours this year.
Don't miss this war: Wasserschlacht 2008.
On Sunday at noon at Oberbaumbrücke (near U1 Schlesisches Tor).
Bring everything disguisting you can find, take all your friends and couchsurfers and stand up against the mean and evil Friedrichshainer.
Kreuzberg needs you. This is our time ;)!
See you on the battlefield.
Since 1999, the traditional rivalry between the traditionally left-leaning districts Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain is played out in the annual "water battle", where residents from both areas, organized in groups with satirical names such as "Anarcho-Cynical Offensive Berlin - Friedrichshain Faction" or "Kreuzberg Landwehr" pelt each other with rotten vegetables, yello, eggs, flour and water and try to symbolically "reconquer" the "renegade" other district (Friedrichshain being mockingly referred to as "East Kreuzberg" and Kreuzberg as "Lower Friedrichshain") by driving their participants from the bridge. Due to their higher turnout and the superior "armament" (including home-built water cannons), the Friedrichshain detachments have won the water battle on a regular basis.
