Re: Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité pour tous

A Walloon was originally a Celt and a speaker of a French dialect in Belgium. 
 But when I lived and studied in Belgium, the term Walloon was applied to all 
French speaking, which is to say approximately the southern half next to 
France.  This was to distinguish them from the Flemish-speaking Dutch half of 
the country in the north.
