Violent Protests Against Covid Lockdowns—35,000 In Brussels—Continue In Europe

A protest against lockdown measures involving some 35,000 people in the Belgian capital Brussels that began peacefully turned violent Sunday, the latest clash to grip Europe as the continent grapples with a climbing number of COVID cases.

Water cannons and tear gas were used on Sunday as tens of thousands came out as part of the “Together for Freedom” march, which Agence France-Presse reported was “largely focused on a ban on the unvaccinated from venues such as restaurants and bars.”

Five Dutch police officers were injured during protests in The Hague Saturday as clashes were reported in other cities while thousands participated in comparatively peaceful march in the capital Amsterdam, a week after the Netherlands reentered three weeks of partial lockdown and has begun banning unvaccinated people from certain venues, CNN reported.
