Around 15,000 people, according to the reports of the local Le Soir media outlet, are marching against austerity and unemployment, and were faced with a heavy-handed police response.
Initially, the trade unions expected to see 40,000 demonstrators on the streets of Brussels.
Trade unions representatives from across the EU gathered in Brussels, following a call from the European Trade Unions Confederation (ETUC). This is the first “euromanifestation” in 2014, with the participants demanding “a new way for Europe.”
It has been reported that clashes happened between the police and dockers from Antwerp and Gent, who led the march and started throwing projectiles at police.
