Protest against the Federal Government’s migration policy

Hundreds of protesters took part in a demonstration in Brussels against the Federal Government’s migration policy on Sunday afternoon. More than 2,300 people took part in the demonstration through the centre of Brussels.

One protester told journalists that "This government does nothing else apart from attack the rights of undocumented migrants. Moreover, they pretend that there are no alternatives. We say not in our name”.

The demonstration was organised by a number of groups that offer support to undocumented migrants and their sympathisers. There were also delegations from the Christian and socialist trades unions among the protesters.

"Undocumented workers are also workers and have the same rights” was the message the unions wished to convey.
