On Friday 9 February 2024 below demonstration took place outside the German Consulate in Cape Town, protesting Germany's support for the Israeli genocide of the Palestinian people of Gaza. The demo was remarkable in that it had Palestinian, Nama and Herero voices all pointing a finger at Germany; as did Jews for Justice in Palestine. In my brief address I reminded the German legation official of German guilt over Colonial atrocities, over the Nazi holocaust of the Jews and other people, over FRG complicity with Apartheid and now the moral bankruptcy where Germany mindlessly supports Israel besides supplying arms to Israel.
