BRUSSELS, 16 Oct – PRIME. In the Belgian capital on Sunday afternoon, there was a demonstration of those who are dissatisfied – including high inflation and rising energy prices, Belgian media reported.
“About 2,000 people (according to the police) and 4,000 people (according to the organizers) gathered this Sunday afternoon in the center of Brussels for the Day of Justice demonstration,” RTBF said in a note.
These are mainly residents who have already opposed the measures introduced in response to the coronavirus pandemic, but their dissatisfaction is no longer limited to this, it notes.
“Inflation and energy prices are also of concern to them … Everyone is especially outraged by politicians, but also by the media,” the RTBF said in a statement.
“The anger and misunderstanding of the protesters about the coronavirus pandemic, measures, vaccinations, masks and COVID certificates is still strong, but rising inflation and apparently uncontrolled energy prices have also brought many demonstrators to the streets,” Le Soir notes. .
No incidents were reported during the protest. However, firecrackers were heard regularly, according to Le Soir.
