‘Yellow Vests’ hit streets of Brussels on European election day

Protesters inspired by France’s ‘Yellow Vest’ movement and drawn from all over Europe demonstrated in central Brussels on Sunday, the same day as the European elections take place in Belgium. Protesters demonstrated in the face of a large police cordon, while several people were seen being detained in the vicinity. Yellow Vest protests have spilled over into Belgium over a variety of grievances, many of them shared with the protesters’ French counterparts, ranging from taxes on fuel to income inequality and growing living costs.
