Our first screening was in Weingarten, in a cultural centre and cinema called “Linse”. When we arrived Weingarten looked very deserted- a small town with empty streets. We walked around and saw an old church from 1720- also empty. So we were wondering about the screening in the night- would anybody turn up? The welcoming in the cultural centre was warm and friendly. While we were having dinner the place suddenly filled up and when the screening started it was only one row left empty. After the screening we had Q+A – the audience was very interested in our struggle and in the possibilities of direct action. We suggested that visitors of the world cup should get together and come up with an action inside the stadium because poor south Africans can not afford to be inside to protest. The eyes of the world will be focused on the stadiums so this could be a very powerful action.
Many thanks to Eugen Detzel and his team from the “Linse”- keep up your good work!
