Event

The "yellow vest" movement will hold a protest in the European district of Brussels on Friday, November 30. Participants will gather beginning at noon (local time) near the Schuman roundabout, before marching towards the Arts-Loi intersection via the Loi Street. Localized transportation disruptions are expected in the vicinity of the protest.

Disruptive protests associated with the "yellow vest" movement have already been held in the southern region of Wallonia; they have resulted in clashes between protesters and police forces, leading to numerous arrests.

Context

The "yellow vest" movement launched protests in France on November 17 against rising fuel prices and a planned fuel tax. Hundreds of thousands have engaged in slow-rolling protests to block roads and highways in France, causing significant traffic disruptions, including in border regions of Belgium, Spain, and the UK.

Advice

Individuals in Belgium, particularly Brussels, are advised to monitor developments to the situation, allow for extra time to reach their destinations, and avoid all protests as a precaution.
