Inauguration of the Rio Reiser Square & the memorial sign "My name is man".

The area around Heinrichplatz was the stomping ground of Rio Reiser and his band Ton Steine Scherben in the 1970s. The starting point of the Berlin squatters' movement in the 1980s was Heinrichplatz, or Heini for short. With their songs, the band Ton Steine Scherben provided the soundtrack for this eventful and still moving time. No power for anyone, Mensch Meier!

It took a long time until the renaming of Heinrichplatz into Rio-Reiser-Platz could be realized, today we can finally celebrate!
