Climate activists of the Extinction Rebellion (XR) group demonstrated in Brussels' central square Grand Place on Friday.
The action was reportedly set to start after the planned Christmas light and sound performance. The demonstrators projected the XR logo on the City Hall facade and the activists wearing costumes with string lights performed a dance, but it seemed that the two events coincided... Еще.
«I didn't like that much because they [city council] continued to play the music and it looked like they called us to make an extra performance, although we are supposed to be against the system,» said an activist.
Another XR activist also commented on the situation: «We are here to claim the action, to reclaim it. And they just want to stop us, they want to mute us.»
