Upwards of 6,000 demonstrators took to the streets of Brussels over the weekend to protest the United Nations recent migration pact; a move that could open the door to countless refugees throughout the continent.
“Thousands of people marched in Brussels on Sunday against a U.N. pact aimed at fostering cooperation on migration, eclipsing a smaller demonstration in support of the deal, the signing of which brought down Belgium’s government last week,” confirms Reuters.
“Police said some 5,500 people marched in the bigger protest, organized by Flemish right wing parties in the part of the capital where main European Union institutions are located,” adds the author.
