Climax Films - C'est Notre Pays pour toujours

C'EST NOTRE PAYS POUR TOUJOURS
by Marie-Hélène Massin

"We in Morocco, at least in Tangier, are told: 'Beware of three things: sea, fire and politics. Three things. And even when you're all alone, do not talk about politics. ' "
(Noredine, a resident of St Gilles.)

n recent years, representatives of Maghreb, have claimed their participation in power. In Saint-Gilles, as in other communes in Brussels, on the occasion of the communal elections, some of them presented themselves for the first time on the different lists of the traditional parties, with their demands and their expectations.
From meetings and debates, these questions about social cohesion and democracy, find their basis.
