Politics against the poor in the Wesertor

Since 7. April 2021 the city administration of Kassel dismantled all seating on Wesertorplatz and blocked off the framework of the benches with construction fences. The benches are mainly used by the homeless and the drinking scene. The seemingly absurd measure takes place within a context, in which the poor are to be driven out of the district and the district is upgraded. A commentary by Christoph Hepp.
