Tens of thousands of protestors marched through the streets of Brussels on Wednesday, against prime minister, Charles Michel’s, liberal government’s austerity measures.
The Front Commun Syndical (a confederation of trades unions), the march organiser, declared that 100,000 people demonstrated in the centre of the European capital on Wednesday morning, one of the biggest marches seen in Belgium in recent years (80,000 according to police). The cortege was largely formed of activists dressed in green, red or blue. Among the slogans, “No to the tax change, yes to jobs” and also “I’m Tanguy”  were prominently displayed by jobless young people.
A year ago, on 6 November 2014, a huge protest gathered together more than 100,000 people in Brussels, against the, then, new right wing government’s austerity measures - a historic social rally in Belgium.
 A combination of the “Je suis Charlie” (I’m Charlie) solidarity phrase and reference to the film Tanguy, about a man living at home, totally dependent upon his parents.
