Brussels: 35,000 people in the street against health measures, the demonstration punctuated by violence


After the Netherlands and Austria, Belgium faces the protest of the inhabitants about the tightening of sanitary measures. They were around 35,000 this Sunday in the streets of Brussels.

Nearly 35,000 people took to the streets of Brussels in Belgium on Sunday to protest against restrictions imposed by the government to stem an outbreak of contamination by the coronavirus, according to a police count.
Clashes took place between law enforcement and protesters who threw smoke bombs and fireworks, Le Soir reported. The situation then gradually calmed down, police said.

Tightening of sanitary measures

Belgium on Wednesday strengthened its restrictions linked to the COVID-19 pandemic by widening the conditions for wearing a mask and decreeing a return to telework as new daily cases of the disease increase. Demonstrations against the tightening of health measures took place on Saturday in Austria and the Netherlands, where several people were injured in violent clashes between demonstrators and the police.
