Freelance journalist

Passions Jean-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.

Decolonizing archeology: the Sistine Chapel of Guaviare

Western archeology is still dependent on a form of colonialist thought. For example, I take the recent Guardian article, ‘Sistine Chapel of the ancients’ rock art discovered in remote Amazon forest, picked up by newspapers around the world. The site is said to be so new “that it wouldn’t even have a name”, according to […]

Décoloniser l’archéologie: la chapelle Sixtine du Guaviare

L’archéologie occidentale est encore tributaire d’une forme de pensée colonialiste. J’en veux pour exemple le récent article du Guardian, ‘Sistine Chapel of the ancients’ rock art discovered in remote Amazon forest, repris par les journaux du monde entier. Le site serait si nouveau “qu’il n’aurait même pas de nom”, selon les “découvreur explorateurs”. L’endroit serait […]

Sa majesté Sabancaya, rencontre du troisième type avec un volcan actif

Sabancaya, première rencontre C’est l’histoire d’un volcan nommé Sabancaya. Il est le 7ème volcan actif le plus haut du monde, en éruption depuis 2016. Mais à ce moment-là, lorsque j’admire ses rejets au loin, j’ignore son prénom et caractéristiques. Ses volutes s’élèvent au ciel sans montrer aucun intérêt pour ma personne. J’écarquille les yeux devant […]
