Viskaprata

Viskaprata “we shall talk”  ,  by South African visual artist  Nontokozo Tshabalala based in  Göteborg,  Sweden. The project delves on  the issue of security and police violence targeting  African people in Sweden.

A report by  Queerstion  Media on the situation of Trans refugees and asylmu seekers in Sweden  dubbed “same struggles different chains”https://tgeu.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/COE-Report-Oct18-Sweden.pdf also revealed that  Trans African people face many incidences of racial discrimination as well as transphobia. Despite the mechanisms put in place  to provide redress for those violated  there still remains challenges of not being trusted and having to prove the discrimination  which in most times takes subtle forma. Faced with this dilemma some people do not report for fear of losing, being victimised as well as the trauma of having to go through court processes.
