A team of around 30 volunteers yesterday tackled the job of cleaning up the De Lijn bus terminal under the North station in Brussels. The underground terminal has long been an impromptu shelter for trans-migrants and other homeless people in the city, as it offers some shelter from the elements. However their presence and the mess they create has twice been the trigger for De Lijn drivers to refuse to stop there. The latest protest is ongoing, with the terminus for De Lijn buses running into the capital switched to nearby Place Rogier, despite protests from local mayor for Saint-Josse, Emir Kir.
