Petitioning Geschäftsführer der Coca-Cola GmbH Hendrik Steckhan and 2 others

Coca-Cola (@CocaCola_De): Pack' deine Werbung vor unseren Fenstern ein! #behindacokead

+++ UPDATE +++ Ihr seid großartig! Gestern (6. Februar) hat Coca Cola sich offiziell bei allen Mietern auf dem Plakat (!!!) entschuldigt und am Abend das Plakat abgemommen. Ein Erfolg in 24 Stunden - Danke für Eure zahlreiche Unterstützung : ) Nando Rossi und Wanda Ott

Der Eigentümer unserer Wohnung in der Danziger Str. 2 in Berlin hat aus unserer Hausfassade eine riesige Plakatwand gemacht. Vor 30+ Fenstern hängt nun eine Coca-Cola Light Werbung.

Tagsüber dringt kaum Tageslicht in unsere Wohnung, sodass wir auch mittags das Licht einschalten müssen! Nachts hingegen wird die Plakatwand beleuchtet, sodass wir gezwungen sind, alle Vorhänge zu schließen, um überhaupt schlafen zu können!

Aber nicht nur die Mieter sind betroffen. Die kleinen Geschäfte und Cafés im Erdgeschoss sind angesichts dieses leuchtenden Monstrums kaum noch zu sehen.

Bitte zeigt Coca-Cola Deutschland, dass ihre Werbung den öffentlichen Raum sehr stark stört und das Leben von Anwohnern verschlechtert. Helft uns dabei, unseren Vermieter und Coca Cola Deutschlandchef Hendrik Steckhan davon zu überzeugen, das Plakat bis Ende Februar abzuhängen.

Insgesamt wollen wir 10.000 Stimmen sammeln!

The landlord of our home at Danziger Str. 2, in Berlin, Germany, has covered the scaffolding outside our building with a giant Coke billboard, over our windows. It blocks the sunshine during the day and lights up (spotlights!) our house during the night.

Not only are 30+ windows affected, but also the small businesses underneath the building who are getting even less visibility compared to the glowing behemoth above them. 

Please show Coke how bizarre and harmful their advertising is and help us stop our landlord!

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

On February 1st, 2013 the entire front of our residential building (including over 30 windows) was covered by a massive Coca-Cola Light advertisement, without previous warning or consent of the residents. Our view and access to sunlight – already reduced since November 2012 due to unnecessary scaffolding – is now practically gone. What’s worse, there are spotlights pointed towards the ad every night. So during the day, we live in a cave and need the lights on, while at night we cannot sleep.

The lives of the residents has been severely impacted by this. We get no sunlight in winter time, when it’s already limited. We have no privacy. We can’t sleep at night due to the spotlights (added to the work in the early hours). Our building has become a rude advertisement for a product which we did not expressly endorse – and we are not even being paid for it. We pay rent and demand our legal rights as tenants.

The signers of this petition are shocked and demand the ad be taken down completely, including spotlights, by the end of February 2013. We demand that scaffolding is removed as well since there is no work being done in the façade of the building, or at the very least to be given a reasonable timeline for the end of the work.

We hope the Coca-Cola Company will be sensitized to learn their brand is being used in such a detrimental manner, and will help us achieve our goal by having their ad removed. We also hope Mr. Horstmann will play his role as landlord and stop depriving us of our legal rights, as well as communicate better with his tenants in the future.
