An estimated 7,500 demonstrators took over the streets of the Belgian capital, in the name of climate protection, on Friday.
Demonstrators mainly included students. They joined the march with signs and chants such as “What do we want? Climate justice! When do we want it? Now!”
The protest was part of a larger movement, as the strike for the future has mobilised people from all around Europe, amid European elections.
The strike originates from “Fridays for Future”, a movement that was initiated by Swedish student Greta Thunberg, who has been demonstrating on Fridays since August 2018 under the motto “School strike for the climate” in front of the Swedish Parliament in Stockholm.
