In protest against the austerity measures imposed by the centre-right government, the Belgian unions have joined forces to voice the workers’ concerns. Around 100,000 people have marched through Brussels to express their disagreement with the government’s anti-social policy putting the burden on families, employed and unemployed, students and the poorest of society rather than targeting the big capital that remains almost untouched by the government’s austerity measures. The demonstration kicks-off a month of actions that ends with a national strike on 15 December. The ETF staff showed its support and marched side by side with the Belgian affiliates.  more >>
