Presentation and Discussion

Osaren Igbinoba, founding member of the refugee organisation The Voice
Refugee Forum and Nigerian political refugee, talks about the continuing
colonial (in)justice in Germany / Europe and the ongoing resistance. His
talk will be based on the article "On Colonial Injustice and the
Continuity of Barbarity in Germany", which was released during the
campaign against the deportation of VOICE member Felix Otto. The article
is on the website of THE VOICE and the KARAWANE in various languages.

It is recommended to read the article in advance.

The KARAWANE Festival "African Masquarede - Concert and Music Parade"
including exhibition, film and installations takes place on June 4-6 in
Jena under the motto "Africa is not far from us - unite against colonial
injustice". All are invited to enrich the event with their own cultural
contribution. Link: http://www.thevoiceforum.org/node/1416

We heartily invite you to learn our views, discuss with us and extend our
working relationship
„…In some cases, what is not considered good enough for their dogs are
considered the best food for us … For they believe that if we do not rot
at the bottom of the ocean then we should certainly rot in their isolated
and abandoned military barracks located in the forests, away from regular
human beings and any urban centres. It is easier to control and slowly
destroy us that way….
But it eats at their souls whether they know it or not, leaving them as
living, breathing robots with no hearts and thus with absolutely no human
comprehension. Frantz Fanon stated these years ago with the bloody French
rule in Algeria and it is still true today in Germany with
refugees…."taken from: The VOICE Refugee Forum Network: On Colonial
Injustice and the Continuity of Barbarity in Germany

We will also present the foto exhibition from the INITIATIVE IN REMEBERING
in our place.
Since 5 years we are struggling for truth, justice and reparation in the
case of Oury Jalloh and in other cases of police brutality. The struggle
will continue until we reach our goals. Marco Del Pra, Thomas Kriska and
Umbruch-Bildarchiv documented the 5 year struggle in pictures.
In January 2005 Oury Jalloh was brutalized and burnt alive in police
custody in Dessau/Germany. On January 7th 2010 we will travel from Hamburg
to Dessau to attend the demonstration and the rememberance. (Bus tickets
