More than 120 Pro-Catalan protesters walked 17 kilometres from the Walloon town of Waterloo to the centre of Brussels on Sunday, 20 October in a “march for freedom.”
The marchers gathered outside of former Catalan President and leader of the separatist movement Carles Puigdemont’s rented home in Waterloo, which they have dubbed the “Casa de la República” (the House of the Republic), and left for Brussels around 9:45 AM.
The group entered the city of Brussels via the Bois de la Cambre park and settled outside the Brussels Central Station where they met up with around 50 other demonstrators around 1:00 PM.
