Refugee Strike geht an die Universitäten

Am Donnerstag, dem 21. November um 19.00 Uhr, diskutierten wir an der Humboldt Universität im Café Krähenfuß über die Situation und den Kampf der Flüchtlinge in Deutschland.

Als filmische Grundlage für die Diskussion präsentierten wir ein Interview mit Dr. Mahoma Mwaungulu sowie ein Gespräch zum Thema "Bitte oder Forderung" im Namen der Flüchtlinge.

Der aus Malawi stammende Dr. Mahoma Mwaungulu studierte in der DDR und arbeitete für die Emanzipation von Flüchtlingen und Asylbewerbern in Berlin.

Der Abend diente als Veranstaltung zur Planung der zukünftigen Entwicklung im Hinblick auf das Bestreben der Flüchtlinge, als Mitglieder der Gesellschaft anerkannt zu werden und schließlich die Staatsbürgerschaft zu bekommen, innerhalb Berlins und anderswo.

Dedicated to Oliver "Ollie" Wendell Harrington
February 14, 1912 - November 2, 1995

Langston Hughes described Ollie Harrington as, "America's greatest Black cartoonist," an assessment that has stood the test of time. An outspoken advocate against racism and for civil rights in the United States and internationally, Harrington requested political asylum in East Germany in 1961. He lived in Berlin for the last three decades of his life.
