Water Cannon and Tear Gas Used at COVID-19 Protests in Brussels

BRUSSELS — Police fired water cannons and tear gas in Brussels on Sunday to disperse protesters marching against COVID-19 vaccinations and restrictions.

This march was held in the wake of demonstrations taking place across Europe on Saturday. These protests also attracted thousands of people who were outraged by vaccine passports and other restrictions that European governments have made in order to stop the coronavirus pandemic.

In Brussels, demonstrators chanted “Liberty!” as they marched.

The white-helmeted police force riot officer tried to disperse protesters later, but they ignored the instructions over loudspeakers telling them that the demonstration was over and that they must leave.

The air was thick with smoke from the protesters as police water canon trucks fired powerful shots at them.
