The Belgische Unie - Union Belge (BUB) political party has called for a demonstration in Brussels on Tuesday, July 21, in support of national unity and against the government's handling of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The demonstration will coincide with Belgium's National Day. The unitarian movement reportedly hopes around 300 participants will gather at 13:00 (local time) at the Mont des Arts. City officials have authorized the event to go ahead as long as COVID-19 social distancing measures are respected.
A heightened security presence and localized overland disruption are possible in the vicinity of the demonstration.
Individuals in Brussels are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations and political gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
