STUTTGART, GERMANY - OCTOBER 09: A demonstrator wearing a mask to look like Baden-Wuerttemberg Governor Stefan Mappus joins tens of thousand of activists marching to protest the Stuttgart 21 railway station project on October 9, 2010 in Stuttgart, Germany. Approximately 300 trees and a portion of current Hauptbahnhof station are to be removed as part of the Stuttgart 21 railway station project, which will replace Stuttgart's current above-ground terminal station with a more efficient underground station. Thousands of opponents are protesting the plan, and tensions have heightened following clashes with police that turned violent on September 30. Baden-Wuerttemberg Governor Stefan Mappus has appointed Christian Democrat (CDU) Heiner Geissler to mediate between the protesters, Deutsche Bahn and local government officials.
