This evening H.R.H.Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume will attend a panel discussion on Stéphane Hessel’s 2010 booklet, Indignez-vous. So what is the booklet about you may ask… well:
Hessel argues that the French need to again become outraged, as were those who participated in the Resistance during World War II. Hessel’s reasons for personal outrage include the growing gap between the very rich and the very poor, France’s treatment of its illegal immigrants, the need to establish free press, the need to protect the environment, importance of protecting the French welfare system, and he calls for peaceful and non-violent insurrection. source
