Pasionaria – A megaphone for migrants

By now we all know that Brussels is a crossroads for migrants, of all sorts: rich expats coexist next to refugees in this multicultural city.

One of the best places to see this mixture is the Midi train station area where businessmen take their fast trains to Paris or London and migrants buy their cheap food at the many local shops around.

This is the place that Emilio Lopez-Menchero chose in 2006 to install his work dedicated to all migrants inaugurated on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the arrival of Moroccans in Belgium.

It’s a huge megaphone free to use. Climb up to the platform and shout your happiness or frustration. Your voice will “extend the axis of the avenue, as a link between the individual and space” as mentioned by the author. 

Every time I pass this crossroad of trains, roads and pedestrians I go there and shout my thoughts to the passers-by. 

Will you be the next one in line?
