Friday, March, 8th, Portuguese construction workers were attacked
by unknown in Berlin and were badly wounded with knifes and sticks. German police an authorities say there was no xenophobic background, allthough the investigations are still in course. The incident took place in the Treptow-Köpenick area, on of the areas of Berlin most affected by the phenomenon of neo-nazism. The workers were sent back to Portugal in a bus four days after the attack. Antonio Cascais spoke with them and published some articles in the portuguese press, pointing the fingers on a reality the tourist guides often avoid.

Additional Reports on angolan elections, August, 31st, 2012



In the angolan election (August, 31st) President José Eduardo dos Santos wants to extend his 33-year rule – and to entrench an elite that controls Africas's second-biggest oil industry and is fast expanding its hold over the continent’s natural resources. Such is the ruling MPLA - Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola’s hold on power that few predict anything other than victory for Mr dos Santos, despite a Gallup poll last year which found that only 16 per cent of Angolans approved of dos Santos' rule.

December 2011:


Antonio Cascais meets African, especially Angolan immigrants in Eberswalde, eastern Germany and speaks about the situation of the relatives of Amadeu Antonio in Luanda, Angola.

Photographs taken in the African Association: Palanca, e.V., Eberswalde, Friday, Dec., 9th, 2011


Amadeu Antonio Kiowa was a contract worker from Angola who lived in Eberswalde in the state of Brandenburg. In the night of November 25th, 1990, a group of about 50 neo-Nazi youths carrying baseball bats went through the city on a "hunt" for blacks. They found and assaulted three black men at a bar: two Mozambicans were severely injured but escaped, while the 28-year old Amadeu Antonio Kiowa fell into a coma from which he did not recover. He died two weeks later.

Amadeu Antonio was one of the first fatalities of racist violence following German reunification. Five of the young culprits were convicted by the court in Frankfurt/Oder and received sentences ranging from probation to at most four years in prison. lt was never established who dealt the fatal blow. Amadeu Antonio Jr. never got to know his father: he came into the world a few weeks after Amadeu Antonio Kiowa's death. Today he lives with his mother and his three siblings in the state of Brandenburg. Helena Afonso, the mother of Amadeu Antonio, lives in the poor Rocha Pinto quarter in Luanda Angola. He has also five brothers and and two sisters, who are still waiting for information and compensation for the damages caused by the murder.

Some scenes on the life of Amadeu Antonio’s family in the Rocha Pinto quarter, Luanda, filmed Saturday, Sept., 3rd, 2011, Portuguese language - HERE

August 2010:


Mozambique

Antonio’s trip to Quelimane, capital of the mozambican Zambézia Province.

Topics of this prospective trip: Cooperation with sisters Idalina and Justina, editors of catholic “Nova Radio Paz”; Environmental situation in Zambésia Province; Social Security, etc.

Some impressions:


“Mwana machwabu kunkalla buruto!” – (“Among the children of the chwabu people there is no stupidity!”) - This is the key sentence in the local chwabu language, I learned before travelling to Quelimane. Before the trip I consulted my eldest Mozambican friend Daniel Machava. As he was born in Maputo his mother tongue – beside the Portuguese - is ronga and not chwabu. And “as a ronga” - he told me – “I’m a foreigner in Zambésia, like you”. But the people in Zambesia are extremely proud, but also open-minded and hospitable, especially if they hear sentences like this one, formulated in their chwabu mother tongue: “Mwana machwabu kunkalla buruto!” - “If you tell this sentence to a waiter or someone else in the streets of Quelimane you probably will win a new friend and be served like a king” – that was the promise of my friend Daniel Machava, who lives in Europe for more than 3 decades, but visited once Quelimane when he was a young man. Thank you, Daniel, for teaching me this very nice sentence. By the way: It worked!
Quelimane is a seaport in Mozambique. It is the administrative capital of the Zambesia Province and the province's largest city, and stands 25 km from the mouth of the Rio dos Bons Sinais Vasco da Gama, on his way to India, reached it and saw "good signs" that he was on the right path. The town was the end point of David Livingstone's famous west-to-east crossing of south-central Africa in 1856. Portuguese is the official language of Mozambique, and many residents of the areas surrounding Quelimane speak Portuguese. The most common local language is Chwabo, apart from Longwé. Quelimane, along with much of Zambezia Province, is extremely prone to floods during Mozambique's rainy season. The most recent bout of severe flooding took place in January 2007.

Cabinda, an exclave and province of Angola (a status that has been disputed by many political organizations which consider the occupation of the territory by Angola illegal).

Antonio’s trip to Cabinda takes place after the attack perpetrated by the independentist group Flec against the Togo football team which participated in the african Football Cup of Nations, CAN - Angola 2010. The attack left three dead, several injured and has led to the withdrawal of the Togo team from the tournement.

Cabinda - with a population of nearly 150 000 - is an exclave and province of Angola, a status that has been disputed by many political organizations in the territory. The capital city is also called Cabinda. The province is divided into four municipalities - Belize, Buco Zau, Cabinda and Congo.
Cabinda is separated from the rest of Angola by a narrow strip of territory belonging to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which bounds the province on the south and the east. Cabinda is bounded on the north by the Republic of the Congo (Congo-Brazzaville), and on the west by the Atlantic Ocean.


Adjacent to the coast are some of the largest offshore oil fields in the world. Petroleum exploration began in 1954 by the Cabinda Gulf Oil Company, when the territory was under Portuguese rule. It is estimated that 60 % of angola’s oil reserves are in deep fields off shore from Cabinda. The territory is able to produce ca. 700,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Cabinda Oil is associated with Sonangol, Agip Angola Lda (41%), Chevron (39.2%), Total (10%) and Eni (9.8%).

In 1885, the Treaty of Simulambuco established in Cabinda a Protectorate of Portugal and a number of Cabindan independence movements consider the occupation of the territory by Angola illegal. While the Angolan Civil War largely ended in 2002, an armed struggle persists in the exclave of Cabinda, where some of the factions have proclaimed an independent Republic of Cabinda.

São Tomé e Príncipe:

Antonio Cascais visits the Portuguese-speaking island nation in the Gulf of Guinea, off the western equatorial coast of Africa


From the late 1400s Portugal began settling convicts on Sao Tome and establishing sugar plantations with the help of slaves from the mainland. The island was also important in the transshipment of slaves. In the XIX century coffee and cocoa crops were introduced.

Sao Tome and Principe is trying to shake off its dependence on the cocoa crop. Falls in production and prices left the island state heavily reliant on foreign aid. The government has been encouraging economic diversification and is set to exploit the billions of barrels of oil which are thought to lie off the country's coast.
