Attack on the Palast de Republik
On May 20, 2001, the Palast de Republik was attacked by East German Militants disguised as Berlin Freedom Fighters. Support for Berlin in the West took a decline, but quickly recovered and grew well above 60% by the time the war was over. In November, it was revealed that the Information pointed to the attack being an inside job to sway East Berliners to support them. This failed, however, as most of Berliners demanded Reunification in the first place.
As Part of the Moscow Treaty, Berlin would be able to vote on its self-determination in 2006. The Referendum was to ask whether or not Berliners wanted to be a part of West or East Germany, but Independence was added to the calujse due to the overwhemling demand by the City Government.
Berlin became Independent in 2003 and at this point, it was clear what would happen to the City. Berlin adopted West German Laws as a result and began preparing for its annexation. Berlin's Governor even kept the original title and the Military would often volunteer in the West German Army. In 2006, the Referendum only confirmed what had been speculated.
As per the Treaty of Moscow, Berlin became a State of West Germany and was given seats in the Bundesrat and Bundenstag. It also had free access of travel via the German Transportation Authority. The Small supporters of the GDR moved to East Germany and some migrated Westward from the East.
