Remembering 10 December
This day in 1959 marked a turning point in the anti-colonial struggle. Eleven unarmed people were killed when police shot at demonstrators protesting against the relocation of the Windhoek Old Location, the biggest urban settlement for black Namibians.
A public lecture on this episode will be given by NAI senior advisor Henning Melber, with NAI researcher Marianne Millstein as discussant 10 December at 13-15, at the Nordic Africa Institute. See invitation.
