{The original text plays with the homophony in bouleau/boulot, not available in English. The text in Flemish plays with the rhyme of berk/werk.]

Original inscription:

Nous plantons ce bouleau car nous voulons
DU BOULOT POUR TOUS !
VOOR IEDEREEN WILLEN WIJ WERK,
daarom planten wij deze berk.
Collectif
Solidarité contre l’Exclusion
Emploi et revenus pour tous 9.9.98

This memorial’s location, beside the Palais de Justice, is so appropriate as to be controversial. We think it quite possible that it was installed, over six years ago, with no official involvement whatsoever.
