It’s an exciting time for the Vlaamse Journalisten Veregniging, as the association holds its end of year press conference on Saturday, December 5, 2015,  at the District House, the main official building of the mayor of Antwerp, Mr. Bart De Wever.  

The association, which continue to grow, remain always adaptable, motivated and responsive, end of year’s press conference coincided with the celebration of the association’s golden jubilee.

At 12.00 pm, the chairman of the Flemish Journalists Association, Mr. Walter Van Den Branden, welcome all the members of the association into the office. After a quick refreshment, Bart De Wever was received by the chairman.

After giving his speech, he gave the platform to the mayor. Like always he shows his experience as a powerful and motivational speaker. He sheds light on his work as a politician, that many are displeased which caused a little laughter.

Like every formidable association, the Flemish Journalists Association, in the past fifty years, works and maintains close relationship with its members, in the fields of freelancing, media entrepreneurs, cartoonists, newspapers and radio journalists.

The Flemish Journalists Association, also maintains close contacts with local authorities, engages in training  and carry out essential qualities needed to journalists to maintain successful careers.

From the mayor’s office, further activities of the association and dinner, took place at the Hotel Ramadan in Antwerp. I have attended many end of year press conferences of the Flemish Journalists Association, but this year’s occasion was exceptional.

After dinner, some of the members retired to bed in the hotel and others left home with free parcels distributed by the association’s secretary Hilde Van Gool.

A Challenge To Belgium Journalists: Show How Sincere You’re To Uncover The Truth Over Aids And Ebola

Sometimes without investigation or finding out reasons some people behave in a different manner, the actions of a man are often judged by the public or certain people, portraying him evil person in the society. We know what is justice, but justice doesn’t work or exist in some countries. Even if it exists, it favours certain class of people, probably elites but not an African.

You may be a member of a group or an association, but might feel uncomfortable with yourself, since you know that they are hiding something from you. In this way, how do you expect an African in the mist of white journalists to behave, when he knows that Aids and Ebola were medical crimes against Africa, but they wouldn’t like to write the truth or let the public know about it?

Another point is, how would you feel as an African in the mist of Belgian journalists, that will neither write anything about the horrible crime Belgium committed in Africa, nor write to demand the breakdown of the statue of Leopold II, if there is no statue of Adolf Hitler, because Leopold was worse than Hitler. He maimed and killed over ten million Africans, including women and children.

This is the reason I’m very bitter, and more bitter, because most of them have failed to realize their hypocrisy  and incompetency, thinking I am the bad one, because of the kind of articles I write. I am an African, so my article reflects on my culture. Anywhere we are or where ever we go, Belgium journalists shouldn’t expect me to open my arms widely to embrace or praise them.

Africa is a continent that has suffered a great of all persecutions, including colonial invasion, slavery, racism, looting, and medical crimes. The more I think about those atrocities, the more I become adamant, because I’m not ready to give myself and be used as foot mat.

My challenge to Belgium journalists is: They must prove to the world, how sincere they are by coming out clean to uncover the truth about Aids and Ebola, because Belgium took part in the medical crimes against Africa.

My respect and thanks to Holland’s scientist Johan Van Dongen, for revealing the truth over Aids and Ebola, as medical crimes against Africa. Even though the truth has cost him dearly, he is a happy man because of his clear conscience and integrity. Let scientists like Ab Osterhaus and Guido Van der Groen continue to lie as pagans, or in whatever they believe in and worship.

People are fed up with lies, greed cover-ups, the reason many have lost interest in the media. If you are a writer and want to be different, write the truth or something significant, which will arrest readers’ attention. That’s exactly what I have achieved. I will therefore never change my identity or my style of writing.

There are many mistakes I did in the past, which I will never repeat them. I don’t live my life to please anyone, and not very kind, because some people take your kindness as foolishness, besides some kindness can give you a lot of worries.

Author Joel Savage explores the struggles of being an illegal immigrant in Europe in his book, Overseas Chronicle: The Rome and Amsterdam Experience. In his third memoir, Savage documents his travels from Rome to Amsterdam.

Surviving encounters with the Mafia and sleeping in abandoned factories, including Pantanella, and the central train station in Rome, Savage decided to move camp to Amsterdam, hoping for a better life. Instead, he realized the hard immigration policies and liberal abuse of drugs and alcohol  had taken a toll on the immigrants in Amsterdam and he wanted no part of it.

Hoping to obtain documentation to rid him of his immigrant status, Savage ended up in many difficult situations, one of which included being arrested and put behind bars. In this passionately written book, the reader gains insight into the pain and agony of being an outsider stuck in a foreign country when all one wants is to be a part of it. Joel Savage’s novel is a must‐read for those hungry for a cultural experience.

Savage was born in Ghana before becoming a citizen of Sierra Leone. His father influenced him at an early age to pursue journalism, and since then he has written for numerous newspapers in Ghana and Belgium.

He currently lives in Belgium with his wife and three children. He freelances for newspapers, magazines, and television and is a member of the Flemish Journalism Association in Belgium.
