Far-Right protesters clash with riot police at memorial tribute


THE heightened tension in Brussels continued this weekend as riot police were forced to intervene after a group of extreme right wing protesters stormed into a memorial tribute.

A large crowd of people had congregated at the Palace de la Bourse on Sunday March 27 where a makeshift memorial had been set up to commemorate the lives lost in Tuesday’s attacks.

The ceremony was however soon interrupted by hundreds of self-declared ‘fascist’ protesters, who harassed Muslim women in the crowd, chanted, and made Nazi salutes.


The riot police arrived at the scene where they used a water cannon to get rid of the belligerent gatecrashers, who eventually backed off.

This Sunday the Belgian police also conducted 13 new raids and questioned more people. A ‘March against Fear’ had been scheduled to take place as well, but was called off over concerns that it would use up too many police resources.
