Mysterious campaign lets politicians do Aloha!

België is geen eiland. De wereldproblemen zijn ook de onze. Belgium is not an island., The world's problems are ours. Challenge our politicians to look beyond borders.

On 18 February 175 mysterious election signs appeared in 130 municipalities in Flanders. With posters of the party chairmen of the five largest political parties. In Aloha outfit! But Why?

That became clear on February 19, when the party leaders were plastered with the slogan “Belgium is not an island., The world’s problems are ours. Challenge our politicians to look beyond borders.”
The campaign led to speculation on social media. And became trending topic. The sender turned out to be the Flemish North-South Movement 11.11.11.


Bogdan Vanden Berghe from 11:11:11: “Resolving and avoiding a financial and economic crisis, tackling climate change, elimination inequality, humane solutions for migrants. To tackle these challenges, we need politicians with guts to look beyond the boundaries. Politics aimed at global trends is important for the South and for ourselves.”

The pasting of the posters was done by volunteers. Hard to keep it a secret. And that may be called a great achievement.

België is geen eiland. De wereldproblemen zijn ook de onze. Belgium is not an island., The world's problems are ours. Challenge our politicians to look beyond borders.

Is this eating disorder ad too sexy?

It’s a serious question. This woman has the typical idealized body of a model, and despite the scary body painting, the portrayal is undeniably drawing attention to her curves and bare skin. When I think about eating disorders, I try to imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a funhouse…
