# Palestine solidarity activists, artists, and cultural workers today peacefully picketed at the Goethe Institute in Johannesburg, decrying Germany’s financial support shaping cultural production as an extension of state policy. Protests also extended to German consulates in Cape Town and Gqeberha. African Artists Against Apartheid condemn Germany’s support for Israel amid allegations of genocide. Activists demand German withdrawal from Israeli support, cultural autonomy, and ending anti-Palestinian repression. Protesters are spearheading a planned protest at the German embassy in Windhoek, Namibia, on the 23rd.
