Campaign Spotlight: Agency mortierbrigade and NGO Vluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen Turned Election Posters Into Portraits of Refugees, Crying for “Our People Too”


BRUSSELS – On the occasion of the Flemish Community Day, mortierbrigade and NGO for refugees’ rights Vluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen recycled the Belgian extreme right-wing party election posters into printed portraits of refugees. On these, Vlaams Belang’s slogan “Our people first” has been revisited as “Our people too”. The giant posters are displayed on the facade of the Beursschouwburg, in the heart of Brussels

Following the Belgian elections last May, a part of Flanders did not show its most welcoming side, preferring a closed community to a tolerant and open one. For NGO Vluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen, to defend refugees’ rights, it partnered with agency mortierbrigade to draw attention to the importance of tolerance and integration of refugees in the Flanders of tomorrow.

The agency turned a negative message that excludes a large part of the population into a positive story which welcomes hope and a stronger sense of humanity.
