The so-called 'Madgermanes' (crazy Germans) demonstrate in Maputo, Mozambique, 14 August 2013. The former guest workers in the GDR have been protesting in the capital of Mozambique every wednesday at 11 o'clock for the last 20 years. After Mozambique became independent in 1975, tens of thousdands of people went to work in the GDR. They received 40 percent of their wages at once while 60 percent went to the state Mozambique to pay off debts with the promise that the money would be paid to the workers upon their return. The Madgermanes are still waiting for their 60 percent. Photo: Britta Peders
