François Vercammen

Notre ami et camarade belge François Vercammen est décédé ce mardi 16 juin, 2015

François était malade depuis des années et, depuis quelques mois, soigné dans une institution. Il s’est éteint paisiblement, en présence de sa compagne, Leen, entouré de l’affection de ses proches. La vie politique consciente de François a été entièrement consacrée à la lutte pour l’émancipation des exploité-e-s et des opprimé-e-s.

A Truly Borderless Diner

With 33 people from 15 different countries, 3 courses of food reflecting a smorgasbord of cultural influences and a live session from an azeri tar and accompanying singing chef, the fundraising dinner organised by Borderless that took place at IIRE on 9th February was precisely that, sans frontières.
