Police face protesters with a banner reading 'Does culture still means anything?' during the removal of a section of the East Side Gallery, a 1,3 km long remainder of the Berlin Wall, for a housing construction project near the city's east railway station in Berlin on February 28, 2013. Some 25 meters of this section of the wall that mostly came down 23 years ago and marked the end of the cold war are taken away to make way for a new housing development on river Spree, a project called Living Levels. As news of this spread activists and artists that had decorated this remaining part of the cold war relic known as the east side gallery came to protest.
