Lecture and Discussion with Salomon Wantchoucou on the Refugee Protests in 2012

Lecture and Discussion with Salomon Wantchoucou (Member of THE VOICE Refugee Forum & Flüchtlingsinitiative Wittenberg)

Wednesday, January 30th, 8 pm @ Bonn University Main Building, Regina-Pacis-Weg 3, Auditorium 3 / free entrance
In 2012 a number of refugee protests caught the public’s attention, denouncing their inhuman living conditions and lack of political rights in Germany: In January Mohammad Rahsepar committed suicide in his room in the collective refugee accomodation in Würzburg. A couple of refugees living in Würzburg sewed up their mouths and went on hunger strike.
Hundreds of refugees took part in the refugee march from Würzburg to Berlin and in the Refugee „Tent Action“.
We want to look back on these events, trying to find out how refugees can organize in order to gain political power and realize their interests. What kind of political action can be next?
