Protesters scuffle with police at the East Side Gallery, which is the longest still-standing portion of the former Berlin Wall, following efforts by a construction company to remove a 25-meter long section of the Wall on March 1, 2013. A real estate developer is planning to build a 14-storey apartment building between the East Side Gallery and the Spree River.
