"La manifestation vira à l'émeute" La police utilisent leur canons à eau et arrosent les manifestants pour les disperser. (Des simples passants, journalistes ou curieux sont arrosés… en plus de la pluie) Ensuite les "boom, boom, boom" ce sont les gendarmes frappant sur leur bouclier et avançant vers la foule en même temps que le camion à eau. Provocation de la part des policiers? Une manifestation qui aurait pu rester pacifique..!
Eight people were deprived of their freedom for the acts committed during the demonstration, says Ine Van Wymersch, spokesman for the first substitute of the public prosecutor.
Two individuals were put at the disposal of the Brussels public prosecutor’s office following their hearing, for threatening acts with weapons (throwing stones at the police) and damages to police vehicles.
A minor has been deprived of his liberty, while five people still have to be summoned for interrogation.
The police of the Brussels-Capital Ixelles area still specifies that 450 people were the subject of an administrative arrest.
