Aalst The storm around The Vismooil a seems meanwhile to lie down, however, it remains Aalsters mayor Christoph D'haese (N-VA) hate mails received. That can the mayor not bring you to other thoughts. “I will Aalst Carnival continue to defend it, to Unesco as it should,” he says.

Aalsters mayor Christoph D'haese (N-VA) received the past week, the winds from the European Commission, Unesco and the Jewish community all over the world. The Vismooil’n went as Jews in the procession, from the Jewish angle, anti-semitic and racist was labeled. The mayor of Aalst defended the carnavalisten. The storm seems meanwhile to lie down, but the hate mails continue to pour in to the mayor. “I get every day is still 100 to 200 hate mails,” says D'haese, but for carnival of 2020, there will be no change. No censorship so. “The European Commission, which is critical to our carnival had, what I call fanciful. They have little knowledge of the Flemish and from aalst humor. Should Flanders still something of his individuality?”

What if Unesco Aalst would omit from the list of the world heritage site? “That would be improper,” says the mayor. “If they plan it, I hope that we have a fair chance given to us to defend and all the arguments lay it on the table,” he says.
