Cultural sector stages "still standing" protest in Brussels

Members of the cultural sector in Belgium staged protest actions in various cities yesterday, including the capital. As from 1 July, small cultural events will be possible again, but the sector is still in dire straits. Actors, singers, musicians, technical staff, performers and others created a "painting of still figures", a symbolic action to underline they are still in the doldrums. Their action was labelled "still standing" and took place during the plenary session of federal parliament. They demanded a better financial compensation, among other things, to break their financial standstill.
