Mayor's plan for major infrastructure project leaked
An anonymous source working in Mithlondon's City Hall leaked plans for an yet unannounced infrastructure project. According to our source the city government plans to convert the city center radically by building a train station and an Expocenter. It's already clear that a lot of residential buildings will fall victim to it, thus further tightening Mithlondon's housing shortage.
The news of the new train station spread like wildfire through the city and protesters gathered in front of City Hall. We couldn't reach the mayor for a statement and were told by his office that he left earlier to watch the upcoming rocket launch live at the space center. Heribert Flackl (§, educated shopper), living close to the city hall, has another theory why the Mayor left: "He is a coward. As soon as the first stone was thrown, he escaped by helicopter."
Successful rocket launch overshadowed by violent protest
Mithlondon's Space Agency surprised the regional community Wednesday by launching a long-range rocket that put an alleged educational satellite in orbit.
A spokesperson of the Space Center said the rocket had successfully blasted off and claimed the satellite it was carrying had entered its intended orbit. The launch followed a botched attempt in April.
Prior to the launch of the rocket protesters gathered in front of Mithlondon's City Hall, they fear that the rocket might damage the pillars of the sky. Lucy Wackl ($$$, slightly educated worker) an organizer of the protest said: "It's totally irresponsible. What happens when the sky falls on us?" The peaceful protest turned violent as people protesting against the new train station entered City Hall Square and started to throw rocks and bottles. The police used tear gas, twelve people were injured, twenty arrested.
