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.

Un amour vache pour la jungle bolivienne

La Bolivie est un pays préservé de la mondialisation, ce qui a ses avantages et ses inconvénients. Parmi les avantages, il y a la possibilité d’être l’un des rares à explorer certaines parties du pays. Les touristes, en particulier dans un pays comme la Bolivie, ne s’aventurent pas en dehors des circuits organisés ; c’est […]

De l’anonymat

Non, anonymat, jamais je ne t’ai aimé. Je t’ai utilisé avec lâcheté, certes, mais jamais tu n’as trouvé digne place dans ma conscience. J’avais recours à tes services honteusement, tel le voleur qui s’assure que personne n’observe. Tu ne m’as jamais rendu meilleurs, anonymat. Au contraire. Tu es la voie royale de l’oubli, le chemin […]

Lithium at the Uyuni Salt Flat, one of the world’s greatest wonders under threat

One might think that to get closer to the heavens, the mountain peaks would be our best stairs, that their erect phalanges holding the clouds in their course would offer mountaineers a unique spectacle of the union of the top and the bottom, between Ouranos and Gaïa. I discovered that this is not the case: […]
