I would define myself as a Belgian social activist trying to promote equality and solidarity at all levels.  I try also to live coherent with these opinions.  One of my favourite quotes (from Montesquieu almost 4 centuries ago) is:

 

Should I know something useful for me but bad for my family, I would reject it from my mind.

Should I know something useful to my family but bad for my Fatherland, I would try to forget it.

Should I know something useful to my Fatherland but bad for Europe or useful to Europe but bad for the Human gender, I should consider it as a crime.

 

Hereafter, you will find links and more information about my activities.  Your attention, most of the sites are not my work.  So, I am not responsible for their content and they are not responsible for my opinions.  Your comments are welcome.

Looking for politics?

 

Looking for social questions?

 

Looking for my other passions?

 

World Democracy.  The apparently funny idea to let people decide by counting those for or those against rather than those stronger or more intelligent is more than 3,000 years old.

The idea to let all people in the world vote is far more recent. 

 

The Belgian Federal Public Service Social Security is the Belgian Federal Ministry where I am working as a jurist since 1989.  At the moment, I am there Information official.

 

Wikipedia.  The extraordinary free encyclopaedia that anyone can edit.  I am taking part as a user (making and correcting pages) in this beautiful project but only a little bit.  I am also an admiror (and a user) of Dmoz.

 

My first political party is Ecolo.  Not perfect, not left wing enough but far the best in French speaking Belgium.  Ecolo has sites at federal level, regional level (Brussels) and municipal level (Molenbeek where I am a member of the municipal council).  I am also member of the Flemish green party: Groen.

 

Public centre for social welfare (in Molenbeek).   Every person staying in Belgium has in theory the right to social services or assistance.  The aim of the PCSW is to give everyone the opportunity to lead a life that meets the standard of human dignity. I am there as a “conseiller CPAS”  (elected person) once a week (till begin 2007).

 

Holiday.  You can see pictures I took in Brazil and Mali (and soon probably more).  I took these pictures during travels I made to go to the World Social Forums (see also a blog about my travel in Mali).

 

Republicans. Belgium is still a monarchy, this is an archaism but sadly still popular.  I am a member of a movement struggling for the Republic.

 

Collectif Solidarités contre l’exclusion.  I am a member of this organization who is promoting more rights for the most excluded people in Belgium.

Other (old) sites: Before knowing Wikipedia and Dmoz, I made the Directory Belgian sites (not actualized anymore).  I had also a site about social security and other sites.  More and more almost everything is on the internet, you just have to know how to search.

Opinions inhabituelles (unusual opinions).  These are my opinions about a lot of political questions.  Often expressed in a polemical way.

 

Sos-faim  I give a big part of my salary to this organization.  It is for me a duty to help people at least as long as people are starving because they do not have money enough to buy food.

 

Biological immortality.  I hope that someday we will not die from old age.  These day, we will read The Fable of the Dragon-tyrant as a prophetical text.

About my family and me as a person.  They are other people involved so no links, sorry.  I am born in 1962 in Etterbeek (Brussels);  I leave in Molenbeek (Brussels) with my partner and our daughter.
