The Norwegian Government should help Dr Joseph Nkusi to be released from prison in Rwanda

  Dr Joseph Nkusi is a Rwandan citizen. He must be released from prison in Rwanda as soon as possible, in order to be resettled in Norway.

Dr Joseph Nkusi came to Norway as a researcher at the University of Bergen in 2009. When his work visa was about to expire, he applied for protection in Norway. He got negative decisions, first from UDI (Directorate of Immigration) and then

We want a philosophical emoticon on Facebook

April is all about Philosophy. Jean Paul Van Bendegem takes the opportunity to ask the founder of Facebook to implement a fitting emoticon and needs YOUR help. Sign the petition!  "With a beard, like every respectable philosopher." ... That’s a joke, of course! Evidently we at Klara also value female philosophers. E.g.

Stop selling Uggs in shoe shops (=mistreatment of animals)

Many shoe stores still sell UGGs. If you are against animal cruelty, you cannot approve nor promote these products.The shoe brand UGG uses Australian merino sheep. The shoes are made from the inside-out skin of the sheep. The animals are killed for their skin. The sheep are tied to their legs and their tails are cut off. They will also be castrated (both without anesthesia). http://bit.ly/19xg44yhttps://www.bontvoordieren.nl/australische-merinowol-op-pijnlijke-wijze-verkregen/We oppose this kind

EUROPE: DOLPHINS :FREE!

Hello animal-friends,  Circus with wild animals is forbidden in Belgium now about ten years. A dolphinarium is also a circus with wild animals; lots of them are even captured from their natural environment, the sea. SO THIS HAS TO STOP! Modern documentaries (on television) learn us that wild animals have a hard time in captivity, also in the usual zoos, and even worse for big predators like lions, bears, orca’s and also dolphins. They can’t live according to their natural instincts, hunting, pr

Skatepark in Schaerbeek

Schaerbeek is one of the largest municipalities in Belgium (127.000 inhabitants) but still does not have a skatepark. This is surprising given that smaller municipalities such as Kraainem (13.000 inhabitants), Evere (37.000 inhabitants), Woluwe-Saint-Lambert (51.000 inhabitants) and Grimbergen (35.000 inhabitants) have one. In addition, Schaerbeek is the municipality with the highest proportion of youth and in particular skaters.   Proposal We therefore propose to build a skatepark in the centre

FOR THE PRESERVATION OF 'CHRISTMAS MARKETING' IN BRUGES

We learned from the VTM news that the name 'Christmas Market'  will change to 'Winter Market' from now on. The organizers changed the name because they don’t want to offend people of another faith. The ruling coalition is silent in all languages.  The reason for switching to the winter market is not very convincing. So their comment : "We also introduced the new name because there was always a comment that the Christmas market is already there before Saint Nicolas is there." We see that the gove
