The demonstration was largely uneventful, but a small group of people clashed with police when the march reached its final destination near Schuman.

Police responded with a water cannon and tear gas, which resulted in some injuries. Several police vehicles were also damaged.

The protesters had gathered at Brussels North station at around midday and the march kicked off around 1.30 pm.

It was led by a delegation of firemen in uniform on the first row, as well as nursing staff.
