The aftermath on the main green. 
In mid-November the German studies department marked the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall by erecting a new one on the College Green. Students mimicked the graffiti on the original wall with their own freedom messages. After a spoken-word competition on the subject of freedom, students were given hammers to smash the new wall in solidarity with those who did the same in Berlin on November 9, 1989.
