Save the Frietkoten in Eeklo sign now

I was born in Eeklo and I spent the first 5 years of my life there. Last monday Eeklo was in the news for the most silly and, at the same time, upsetting reason. It turns out that the mayor of Eeklo wants to have the two frietkoten on the marketsquare removed permanently for esthetic reasons. The motivation he gave himself was that people who passed through Eeklo or visited Eeklo said that those frietkoten were so totally unesthetic and a shame for the marketplace.

Now, let me tell you a little bit about Eeklo. Most people who have passed through Eeklo on their visit to Maldegem or even Brugge or Knokke know that Eeklo is hardly more than one long and boring shopping street that has ugly and unesthetic written all over it. So, let me thus conclude that its all gotten to the head of the mayor and that power has driven him mad (or just insane?).

It is for that reason, dear lovers of Studiomuscle, the Free Spirit and n kleintje mй stoofvleessauwse en majjonaize en nen viandel, I would like to request the following: lets write some message to Mr. Koen Loete (CD&V) at the following address [email protected] (no kidding, its that simple). What you say and how you say it is up to you, as long as it has the words frietkoten, op, de, markt, in, Eeklo, sluiten, is, totale, onzin, en, getuigt, van, op, de, spits, gedreven, kleinburgerlijkheid, en, machtsmisbruik or something like that.

Im normally not all that into chain letters or petitions, but this fact I find rather disturbing and a frigthening omen of whats to happen once CD&V takes the power back on a national level. So save the world, save Belgium and save the Frietkoten on the marketplace in Eeklo.

Note: the Frietkoten date back from the 1920s and the Belfry in Eeklo dates from 1932.
