The organization Citizens for Europe last week staged a ballot for Berlin's foreign residents ahead of the German capital's mayoral election. The SPD and Greens were the big winners of the "symbolic election."
Earlier this summer, a meeting of American Voices Abroad (AVA) was graced by a special guest. He came to address the Berlin-based organization for US expats on a theme they knew from home, and which spoke to many of their hearts - no taxation without representation. He also came to mobilize these non-native Berliners, many of whom have lived and worked in the city for decades, to do something about it.
