Kreuzberg people are annoyed by Google's gentrification power.
This is an opportunity to talk about Corporate Internet surveillance, as long as other three topics: Smart City (and the freedom of their citizen), (Datafication of the life), Gentrification and the start-up delusion.

For example, if you open a website and that contains google analytics, means your visitor which you assume are sharing data (this, interests, thus, power for who can use it) with you, SURPRISE also Google is lurking there.
Then what? Fuck off Google not just from the Kreuzberg neighbor, but also to the Kreuzberg websites. Contest the Giant in the only environment where dominate: the web
