(Québec) In addition to wearing it, two members of the Belgian delegation to the International forum for the French language undertook the distribution of the felted red square, the symbol of the student struggle in the province, to the delegates participating in the event. The young residents of Brussels also want to show their solidarity with Quebeckers “in a peaceful manner”.
Aged 30 and 32 respectively, Thomas Prédour and Mathias Bressan were called to by the student conflict and the echoes that they had in their country. But it’s when they met the spokesperson for the Fédération étudiante collégiale du Québec, Éliane Laberge, on Monday that they had the idea of pinning a red square to their clothing and to have them distributed.
