Thousands of people marched through the streets of Brussels on Tuesday to protest against the rise of the far-right across Europe.
Footage shows protesters marching and chanting, holding flags and anti-fascist signs. According to reports, around 6,000 people joined the rally.
Organised by the anti-fascist group ‘Stand Up’ the rally takes place in response to the record support from Belgians towards the far-right group Vlaams Belang in the recent European Parliament elections.
Countries such as France, Italy, and the United Kingdom also saw a far-right wave in the elections.
“We are outdoing the unauthorised protest, we denounce that too, and it is very important to be here and wake people up because a lot of the people who vote fascist don’t know what they are doing,” said Vincent Van Den Brande, a yellow vest protesters participating in the march.
