After a fabulous weekend with young greens from all over Europe I set course for Belgrade together with Teo to the CDN (cdnee.org) seminar on ethnical minorities and conflict prevention. The journey was hard but more of that later. I went there to give a workshop on critical whiteness. It was the first time since my experience in Strasbourg that I would talk very publicly and open about minorities.
As such it was quite the experience. The very feasable influence coming from the Balkan or rather the Ex-Yugoslav reality is as such a matter on its own. The experience was even better do to the amount of participants who were open and willing to discuss difficulties, problems and solutions when talking about minorities.
Therefor it was an eye-opening seminar. Not only contentwise, but also aknowledging that Rakija is evil.
