Bizim Bakkal

Gentrification is threatening to destroy Berlin
Investment in real estate is driving up rents and for one greengrocer in the Kreuzberg district, it’s even putting his livelihood at risk.
This is why when a neighbourhood greengrocer Bizim Bakkal (meaning ‘our little shop’ in Turkish) recently received a notice that they must vacate their premises the people of the district formed a support group which tries to stop it and to show how gentrification works in this area. This local group grew so strong that bizim bakal can stay and its still fighting against gentrification in Kreuzberg.
