“Police are hounding refugees”

13/1/19 - Between 1,700 and 2,000 people demonstrated in favour of a more humane migration policy in Brussels on Saturday.  The lower figure comes from the police, the higher from the demonstrators. The call for the demo chiefly came from Francophone organisations, but Flemings too marched in opposition to the federal government's migration policies. They shouted "Solidarity knows no borders.  Refugees are people too!" The demonstrators believe the police are hounding undocumented people and those eager to help them.  They are unhappy with the fact that children are being locked up in repatriation centres ahead of repatriation with their parents.
