[creative-radio] New Video: BLIND BANGA - Maybe I can see again! Gerstungen Refugee Isolation camp in Thueringen


New Video: BLIND BANGA - Maybe I can see again! Gerstungen Refugee
Isolation camp in Thueringen

This is a story of racist discrimination and social injustice in Germany.

The video is about a West African Refugee, Bamkale Konateh who became
blind in the Gerstungen Refugee Isolation camp in Thueringen, he lost his
right eye in 2004 in the hands of brutal police control in the city of
Düsseldorf. He became completely blind in 2009 when he was serving 10
months imprisonment, since then he has been left alone in the isolated
refugee camp without any rehabilitation. The attempt to deport him was
rejected by the Doctor, because of medical reasons at that time.
