    Opponents of the Transatlantic Treaties currently being negotiated between the EU, the US and Canada will protest in the centre of Brussels on Tuesday afternoon, and into the evening. Traffic is expected to be disrupted, the Brussels Capitale Ixelles police said on Sunday.

    The protest will take place between 4.30pm and 7pm. They will go through rue de la Loi, rue du Taciturn, rue Joseph II, chaussée d’Etterbeek, rue Belliard, avenue d’Auderghem and the Schuman roundabout.

    The police have said that the area around the departure point, near rue de la Loi, could be shut off before the protest. The Reyers-centre tunnel and the Cinquantenaire tunnel heading towards the centre will be closed at 3.30 pm.

    The Schuman roundabout and the Reyers-centre tunnel could remain closed to traffic until 11pm.
