"Yellow vest" protests were held in Brussels on Saturday, December 15. On Sunday morning (local time), demonstrators staged a march between Arts-Loi and place du Luxembourg. As of 16:00, demonstrations continue to be reported around place du Luxembourg and along rue Belliard. Transportation disruptions, along with a heightened security presence, are expected in the area in the coming hours.
The "yellow vest" movement launched protests in France on November 17 against rising fuel prices and a planned fuel tax. Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators have engaged in slow-rolling protests to block roads and highways in France and Belgium, causing significant traffic disruptions.
Individuals in Belgium, particularly Brussels, are advised to follow all instructions issued by local authorities, allow for extra time to reach their destination, and avoid all protests as a precaution.
