Passa Porta Literary Festival part 2 of 2


"Belgium-debate" held in La Tentation, meeting place of the Gallician community in Brussels. Two writers and two journalists, two Flemish and two Walloons talked about the actual difficulties of a small country. Moderator and host Didier Delafontaine kept the line right in the middle.

Representing the Francophone or Walloon side were journalist Olivier Mouton of Le Soir and author Caroline Lamarche. Representing the Dutch-speaking or Flemish side were journalist Bart Sturtewagen of De Standaard and author Geert van Istendael.
