This weekend was the event even a pony-tail. One or more vandals viseerden on Friday, the conscious café. With graffiti they wrote ‘fascists’ and ‘racists’ on the facade, and the lock on the front door was with a substance, possibly glue, dichtgespoten.

No extreme right-wing cafe

“A sad truth case”, sounds at cafébaas Dieter De Meyere. “I know Dries, for some years, from his student days, even before there was the Shield and Friends, and that sort of thing. When he asked me if he and the party just might come in, I have a little bit of time for reflection asked. If cafébaas do you want to remain neutral. And that I also want to always be. If any other party ask me if they put me in the café are allowed to use for speeches or a meeting, then that would also stay. With all the extremes you of course need to pay attention - whether to the left or to the right. But eventually I thought: ‘why not?’ It is study period and quietly. I have said ‘yes’ because I'm such a good evening would turn out. Apart from the political.”
