MAKE SISTA MIMI’S LAST WISH COME TRUE

Leave a comment

Update on the successful crowdfunding campaign for Sista Mimi. Still, the support will be continued!
“Thank you for contributing! Together, we fulfilled Sista Mimi’s last wish! The funeral parlour will be paid tomorrow (December 29). The flight to Nairobi will take place on January, 1st or 2nd. Mimi’s relatives in Kenya are very moved that her community in Berlin made this possible. They were also happy to learn that a Berlin friend of Mimi will accompany her on her last journey and attend the funeral as a representative of her Berlin community.Next Goals
Mimi always provided as much support as she could to her daughter in Kenya. She will start the last grade of secondary education in January 2015 and wants to pursue university education. Let us continue Mimi’s support for her daughter’s education! To spread Sista Mimi’s political thinking, there will be a non-profit movie by a friend of her (he also made the tribute you find under news). The film will build a bridge between her life in Germany and in Kenya. The transport and editing costs of the filmmaker who will accompany Mimi will be 1.300 € (500€ for the ticket, 300€ for travel costs, 500€ for the technical equipment). The film will also help for long-term financial support for her daughter´s education.”

———————————
After 20 years of activism in Germany, Sista Mimi died on December 10. Until the very end, she kept on fighting for human rights​, lastly​ in the Refugee School in Kreuzberg.
As long as she was alive, she refused to return to Kenya: Who then would bring about change in Germany? But her last wish was to rest in peace in Kenya.
For her wish to come true, we must pay the funeral parlour 7.000€ on DECEMBER 29​! Only then will Mimi fly to Nairobi!
Let’s all contribute towards fulfilling the last wish of this extraordinary activist, musician and friend who lives on in all of us! And, above all, let’s tell everyone whom we meet about Sista Mimi, show the a video of her and ask them to contribute, too!

FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT FOR EVERYONE!
SISTA MIMI, REST IN PEACE!
