These are the times for real choices and not false ones. We are at the moment when our lives must be placed on the line if our nation is to survive its own folly. Every man of humane convictions must decide on the protest that best suits his convictions, but we must all protest.
— Martin Luther King
Sometimes you loathe it, sometimes you love it. But for sure, you can not ignore its diversity. Brussels hosts more than 180 nationalities and more than 100 languages are said to be spoken in the European capital. It could be even the 2nd most cosmopolitan city around the World. Apart from its cultural diversity, Brussels is also the city of the freedom of speech. Every week you will find a demonstration raising awareness about a wide range of concerns. This story highlights portraits of walking messengers. It aims at celebrating the right to protest candidly, to support the right of people to think differently provided that they do not harm the others.
