Warsaw unites against racism

Warsaw's inhabitants stood in solidarity with their African neighbours who were targeted by racists.
The 'NEVER AGAIN' Association, together with Projekt: Polska, organized a civic action to show solidarity and paint over large racist graffiti that appeared by the entrances of the African restaurant La Mama and a nearby African shop. 

Both sites are located in the Muranow district, known as the area of the Warsaw Jewish Ghetto during the Nazi occupation, and they are near the Polonia Warsaw football ground.
The La Mama restaurant is a key meeting point for the African community in Warsaw and it has hosted anti-racism educational activities co-organized with the 'NEVER AGAIN' Association, such as the special multi-cultural event on the final of the African Cup of Nations in February 2013.
The graffiti at both sites included racist text and an image of a man on the gallows. The 'NEVER AGAIN' action was organized within hours after the racist graffiti was discovered on 19 June and it brought together several hundred participants mobilized through Facebook. It drew positive coverage in the media, too. The Mayor of Warsaw, Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz endorsed the initiative on her own Facebook page saying 'I am happy you have gathered to remove the racist inscriptions through collective action. Warsaw is an open city and there must be no place for any expression of racism! I have instructed the Warsaw City Police to pay particular attention to any such acts of discrimination.'
The incident took place against the background of a series of hate crimes that occurred in several Polish regions in the recent weeks. Anti-racism experts attribute the rise in hate crime to an increased street presence of the newly formed far-right Nationalist Movement which has drawn its strength from the racist football hooligan subculture across Poland. The Polish government has asked 'NEVER AGAIN' to join its new task force for monitoring hate crimes.
The recent tendencies in far-right activities were discussed during a study visit of American, British and German organizations monitoring and combatting antisemitism, racism and right-wing extremism, hosted by the 'NEVER AGAIN' Association and the Ebert Foundation in Warsaw on 12-16 June 2013. The visitors included high-level representatives of the Southern Poverty Law Centre, the Anti-Defamation League, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, New York Police Department, and the Community Security Trust.
The ‘NEVER AGAIN’ Association is an independent educational and monitoring organization established in Poland in 1996. In 2009, in cooperation with UEFA and the FARE network ‘NEVER AGAIN’ set up the East Europe Monitoring Centre documenting racism and xenophobia across the region. In 2012, it implemented the 'RESPECT Diversity – Football Unites' social responsibility project accompanying the European Football Championships in Poland and Ukraine.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & day!

Hello from
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
