Phoebe Cooke is a freelance journalist based in Berlin, Germany. With three years of experience writing for regional newspapers in the UK, Phoebe is now spending three months touring around Germany ahead of the federal election on September 24. A fluent German speaker with a degree in German language and literature at the University of Oxford and two-and-a-half years living in Germany and Austria, Phoebe has her fingers on Germany's political pulse and can turn her hand to everything from time-pressured news pieces to longer, more in-depth features. Interests include politics, people and the arts.
I interviewed a range of women voters to find out what they thought about the Conservatives.
I interviewed workers near a property police were raiding in connection with the London Bridge terror attacks.
An interview with veteran protester Jörg Otto outside the beleagured anti-G20 camp in Hamburg, July 2017.
In the aftermath of the G20 I interviewed co-organiser of the "Welcome to Hell" protest group, Andreas Blechschmidt, outside the famous Rote Flora squat in Hamburg. Alongside this I explore how the actions of protesters and police during the summit were portrayed in the mainstream media by examining the German newspapers.
