Download PDF for this date

Over 100,000 people marched here yesterday to protest against neo-Nazism and renewed anti-Semitism. The demonstration, described as the largest held in Brussels since the end of the war, was organized by some 80 organizations, including all of the country’s political parties with the exception of the Flemish nationalist “Volksunie” movement. Dozens of ministers and members of Parliament took part in the march which was broadcast live by the recently established “Radio Judaica.” Trade unions and professional organizations also took part in the demonstration.
