Description

IWS RADIO is a podcast series on the migrant woman experience brought to you by IWS, the International Women* Space. We are a feminist, anti-racist group of migrant women, refugee women and women without this experience. We are based in Berlin, Germany. We work to document the lives and stories of refugee and migrant women living in Germany. We create platforms for women to speak out and get their voices heard. We want to inspire other women to self-organize, formulate their needs and demands and to initiate collective actions. With IWS RADIO we want to both shed light on our lived experiences and the general situation for migrant women in Germany.

The COVID-19 pandemic brought a wave of violent racism against Asian communities all over the world. IWS members Ngoc, Haewon & Dahye welcome three guests for our third episode of IWS RADIO to discuss this and more... We hear first from Jiye Seong-Yu of Asian Voices Europe about how the group went about dealing with the anti-Asian racism. Then, Esra Karakaya of Karakaya Talks joins the show to discuss how the good immigrant image perpetuates the colonial strategy to divide and conquer - and the need for solidarity among migrant communities. And, finally, Thao Ho talks about her collective DAMN (Deutsch Asiat*innen Make Noise) and what it will take to move towards more Black-Asian solidarity.
Lavenda, Jennifer and Denise from IWS are joined by Diana Arce from Black Lives Matter Berlin and Hela Kanakane from Alarm Phone. We talk to Diana about the killing of George Floyd in the US and the ongoing wave of anti-racist protests it sparked. She discusses how racism manifests itself in the US and in Germany and highlights relevant current debates. Hela shares information about the situation of migrants at the borders of Europe: the Central Mediterranean Sea and describes how an already dire situation has worsened in the wake of the Corona pandemic.
The first episode exposes the inhumane conditions of the Lager system in Germany, especially in the times of the Covid-19 pandemic.
