Freelance journalist

PassionsJean-Claude VignoliAfter several years in Africa, I am currently traveling Latin America, residing among indigenous peoples, such as the Bri-bris in Costa Rica, the Kogis in Colombia, and the Qeros in Peru. I am passionate about archeology (I (re) discovered ruins in Peru) and ancient arts, but don't mind trying to understand quantum physics or modern art. I like literature as long as it is not pedantic like Flaubert, likes a cinema which makes you dream intelligently. I love the present and the past, because the future concerns us all.

Background Today I am a freelance journalist, seeking to share the truth of the world. I have a master's degree in international relations from the Graduate institute, I am the former director of programmes of UPR Info, an international human rights NGO that I co-founded. I was also national manager at EAGLE (an NGO fighting against trafficking in protected animals), and member of the Committee of the Green party of Geneva, Switzerland. As a volunteer journalist and activist for Amnesty International's Swiss chapter, I wrote and organized many activities to denounce the death penalty and torture all over the world. I carry out the ethical and practical fights, in other words those for which my action can make a difference for the most disadvantaged, be they humans or animals.
