Video by International Women Space about Angela Davis duscussing with the refugee movement around Ohlauer School.

“Can someone explain to me why can't I go inside the School?” asked Angela Davis on the 14th of May, during her meeting with activists in the Werkstatt der Kulturen, in Berlin. “Is it a school or a prison?” To what people from the audience replied: “Yes”. Angela Davis and Gina Dent wanted to visit the refugee occupied school in the Ohlauer Strasse and were denied access by the District authorities.

The day after, on the 15th of May, Angela Davis and Gina Dent met again with refugees and migrants at the Jockel Biergarten. This time to listen, understand and discuss how the struggle for the rights of all people to move freely and have a dignified life is going on in Germany.

We, from the International Women Space, were present in both meetings and stressed about the importance of the women's struggles inside the movement of the people seeking asylum.
