Rimini Protokoll is the label for projects by Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi and Daniel Wetzel.
Rimini Protokoll (Haug/Wetzel) are presenting the two Vietnam Veterans and Anti-War activists Darnell Stephen Summers and Dave Blalock with their definition of RESIST...REFUSE...REBELL
DARNELL “STEPHEN” SUMMERS was born on July 9, 1947 in Detroit Michigan, USA. He volunteered for the US Army and served from 1966 to 1970. While home on leave before going to Vietnam in 1968 he became involved in the struggle to found the "Malcolm X Cultural Center (MXCC) in Inkster Michigan, a suburb of Detroit and was one of the spokespersons for the "MXCC".
His political affiliations included membership in the Black Workers Congress, Viet Nam Veterans Against The War / Viet Nam Veterans Against The War (Anti-Imperialist), chartermember of the Malcolm X Cultural Center(Inkster Michigan).
Darnell has professional experience as a Musician, Film Director, Actor, Media Editor, Composer, Cameraman, Producer and Sound Technician. He presently lives in Germany and has 4 children.
DAVE BLALOCK (born 1950 in Johnstown, Pennsylvania) volunteered for the US Army and served from 1968 to 1971. After being AWOL for nine days in basic training he was court-martialed and spent one month out of a possible six-month prison term doing “Hard Labor” time in the Fort Jackson stockade. He then spent one year in Vietnam (1969-1970) where he became politicized by his experiences there.
Blalock and Summers are also playing themselves in the Rimini-Protokoll theatrical production of Schiller’s “WALLENSTEIN” where they among a cast of ten people out of real life take this opportunity to tell their story in the midst of Intrigue, War & Death.
