Madrid, Spain – On Tuesday 18 February, the Spanish AWEPA Section organised a special tribute to Nelson Mandela at its headquarters in Madrid. The event served to remember the late Madiba and examine the impact of his career on the political course and social developments in South Africa and in the rest of the world.
The event was organised by the Spanish AWEPA Section in cooperation with the Euro-African Centre (“Centre Euro Africa” in Spanish) and the Mujeres por África Foundation. During the event, a collaboration agreement was signed between AWEPA Spain and the Euro-African Centre, based on sharing information of the activities. The Centre is a non-profit organisation, politically independent, created to give more visibility in all areas to the presence of the Diaspora and people of African origin in Catalonia, Spain and the rest of Europe.
