23/01/11, No Government, Great Country

23
January 2011

I'll not talk about politics here.
Although this demonstration was apolitical, the small world of our dear representatives (does this word still have a meaning ?) was more than omnipresent today.
Fortunately, no "elite" has shown up today. The recovery attempt was reportedly obvious. However, a party on the far left of the political spectrum was still present opposite the Gare du Nord. No big deal...

The imposing cortege (from 34,000 to 45,000 peopleNote1 according to various sources) therefore set off in Brussels-North to join the Cinquantenaire esplanade.
On the few four kilometers of the course, the key words were friendliness, solidarity and imagination. The numerous humorous signs are proof of this, without forgetting the disguises.
Nor should we forget a hint of nationalism. Good nationalism is understood. This January 23 was one of the too few occasions when we felt this country vibrate.
The song of the Swan ? I dare not believe it...

Shame, No Government, Great Country

The party was however spoiled by a dozen TAKNote2 activists (from photo 76). These assholesNote3 were waiting for the procession near the Charlemagne building, Wetstraat.
Spirits warmed up fairly quickly, and a fairly violent altercation quickly took place. But luckily away from the protesters.
The TAK not even respecting the many children present today, it is high time that they finally pledge their only place : the prison ! Five of them will be placed in police custody.
Right after this deplorable incident, perhaps the image to remember (photo 94) : a demonstrator waving a Flemish Movement flag (and not simply Flemish, I insist !) Torn apart by the stampede.
Usually it’s the TAK that spits on anything that is black-yellow-red. For once, the roles are reversed.
After this deplorable incident, the good humor was quickly back.

The event was organized by Thomas Royberghs, Felix De Clerck, Simon Vandereecken, Alex Hermans and Thomas Decreus, five students.

Notes

  1. Given the crappy (but dry) weather and the Belgian's propensity to grumble while staying at home, this is an unexpected success.
  2. Taal Aktie Komitee.
    Flemish ultra-nationalist pressure group, linked to the NVA and the Vlaams Belang. In short, assholes. Active regularly during demonstrations or municipal councils in the Brussels periphery.
    These parasites were already highlighted last week by attacking the mayor of Wezembeek-Oppem, François van Hoobrouck, at his home.
  3. I allow myself open insults because I despise them as much as these dumbasses despise everything that is not flemish.
    They never have to justify themselves.
